SpotterRF, an industry-leading manufacturer of ground surveillance radar, and a recognized ‘ASTORS’ Winner for Three Consecutive Years in American Security Today’s prestigious Annual Homeland Security Awards Program, is releasing the company’s NetworkedIO (NIO) 4.0 software platform which adds Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) for the automatic classification of targets.

SPOTTERai is automatic track classification included as part of the NIO software which establishes a trainable neural network, that based on low-level radar data, automatically assigns each target with a classification type and confidence level.

(Spotter AI is a radar classification based on artificial intelligence (AI) achieved by site-specific machine learning (ML). Using a neural network it knows if the target your tracking is a person, vehicle, animal, drone, other subjects and without using a camera.

The use of AI and Machine Learning in the NIO aids in reducing false alerts and enables end-users to improve the performance of the system, simply by manually selecting the type of targets being tracked and retraining the AI.

“The AI classifier and trainer are an excellent tool to further reduce false alarms and reduce the workload on the operator,” explains Logan Harris, CEO, and Founder of SpotterRF.

“After the operator manually classifies 30 tracks or more of at least two different types the AI is able to differentiate between those types, such as between cars and people or birds and drones with confidence that increases as more tracks are classified.”

“With our new AI engine, customers will be able to focus on targets that matter. We’ve heard from our user base that they appreciate our NIO software being so flexible and easy to integrate with other systems.”

“With the addition of AI, we ensure our products are even more valuable in preventing harm at their sites.”

SpotterRF is also releasing two additional new radar products, the CK5 and CK20 for distribution in Q2 of 2019, as well as continue to see the 3D-500 radar take gain increasing ground in the CUAS Drone Detection space.

The CK20 became available for purchase in small quantities on April 15th, and the CK5 will be available for order in June of 2019.

The CK5 and CK20 operate in the unlicensed 24GHz band and provide coverage in “cluttered” and “close” quarter areas.

“These solutions provide exemplary coverage in cluttered areas like electrical substations where it’s difficult to see targets with all the metal and electrical equipment,” explains Brad Solomon, Director of Business Development.

“With the CK series products, SpotterRF continues to bring useful and valuable perimeter and property protection to our customers.”

The CK5 and CK20 will be unlicensed in the US but will meet the EU’s CE / Class B and RED standards to provide consistency for SpotterRF’s partners in Europe.
