A+ Technology & Security Named First Authorized Dealer of Sharp’s Automated Unmanned Ground Vehicle

As an authorized reseller of the Sharp INTELLOS, A+ will support customers with security assessments, installation and training.

BAY SHORE, N.Y. – A+ Technology & Security Solutions, based here, is the first authorized security systems integrator to sell and support the new Sharp INTELLOS Automated Unmanned Ground Vehicle (A-UGV).

Introduced Sept. 12 by Sharp Electronics Corporation at ASIS 2016 in Orlando, the A-UGV is a multiterrain, mobile sensor platform that can capture video, audio and environmental data, while providing a visible deterrent. The data provided by the Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV can enhance outdoor surveillance, security, safety and maintenance inspections, according to the company.

David Antar, president of A+, says the company’s expertise in technology convergence and integration dovetails perfectly with the role the A-UGV can play as part of a comprehensive physical security solution.

“A+ Technology & Security has always prided itself at being ahead of the curve in recognizing the value of emerging technologies, and there is no question that autonomous unmanned ground vehicles will play an important role within the future security marketplace,” he says. “We are thrilled to be the first integrator to offer the Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV and are looking forward to sharing its possibilities with our customers.”

A+ already offers and supports a wide range of security and facility management systems, as well as management software and command center solutions. The ability of INTELLOS to provide an autonomous mobile platform for physical security and environmental sensors, the data from which can be monitored, prioritized and managed by these same centralized command center solutions, means an opportunity for A+ to extend exciting new possibilities to its customers, according to a news release. The Sharp INTELLOS is said to be particularly well suited for customers with expansive outdoor properties, such as manufacturing, utilities, pharmaceuticals, data centers, airports, rail yards and government facilities.

As an authorized reseller of the Sharp INTELLOS, A+ will support customers with security assessments, installation and training.

The A-UGV has the capability to operate as a self-directed robot, which navigates on the ground, outdoors around a facility, without a human driver. After its route is programmed, it is capable of operating autonomously and can be equipped to extend human capabilities, such as sight, using an array of cameras, including available thermal imaging.
