Echodyne to Lead Session on 3D Perimeter Security at Energy Drone + Robotics Summit

Sponsored by Businesswire

Echodyne, the manufacturer of innovative, high-performance, small
electronically scanned array (ESA) radars for government and commercial
markets, announced today that they will be leading a session on
perimeter security for energy facilities on June 12th at the
Energy Drone + Robotics Summit, in Houston. The company will speak about
the importance of integrating high-performance radars into existing
video management systems for a single view of both air and ground
domains within a comprehensive perimeter security system.

The Energy Drone + Robotics Summit will take place at The Woodlands
Waterway Marriott. It brings together business and technology leaders
from the UAV/AUV/Robotics ecosystem with energy industrial complex asset
owners and end users to discuss UAV/Robotics operations in the energy
industry. This includes discussion of how energy facilities can respond
to the emerging security threat posed by drones.

Mr. Darrick Felise, Commercial Sales Director, will speak at 1pm in the
session entitled “Modern Energy Facility Perimeter Security.” He will
discuss the importance of incorporating high-performance radars into
critical infrastructure perimeter security to protect against the new
airborne threat from drones. He will detail how Echodyne has integrated
its high-performance radar data into Video Management Systems (VMS) via
a middleware layer to provide comprehensive single-pane-of-glass
security operations that minimizes false alarms via machine-learning
classification and integrated identification of objects of interest in
the airspace.

“Current video management systems on the market are limited in their
ability to address new kinds of airborne perimeter threats, like
drones,” Felise said. “Echodyne’s compact high-performance radars offer
a new level of perimeter situational awareness to protect against the
next generation of security threats.”
