Xandar Kardian, a Toronto-based startup that develops UWB radar technology for presence detection and motion monitoring, is debuting two new program partnerships at ISC West 2022 this month. Orion ECI, an entrance control technology company based in New Hampshire, and GRASP Innovations, an aviation security startup from the Netherlands, have both partnered with Xandar Kardian to utilize radar technology devices for a complete security solution at an institutional level.
Xandar Kardian’s UWB radar technology processes 15 million radar signals per second, reacting to the micro-vibrations generated by the human body to continuously and autonomously detect presence in real-time with 99.9 percent accuracy. The devices do not require cameras, microphones, battery, or user intervention, operate at the same accuracy and effectiveness regardless of ceiling height, sunlight, or environment, and can be deployed behind walls, over entrances, on ceilings, and under furniture.
Additionally, Xandar Kardian devices are 100 percent edge computing based and do not rely on any AI, eliminating the potential for the detection errors often caused by artificial intelligence-based sensors.
“You can’t hide your heartbeat,” said Sam Yang, Xander Kardian co-founder and managing director. “Because our UWB radar detects presence and vacancy based of off the micro vibration of a beating human heart or lungs pumping air, there is really no way for anyone to hide from detection. This is what makes our devices so transformative as a security solution for airports, banks, business, etc. It offers the total coverage and total privacy these types of institutions need.”
GRASP Innovations, a start-up in airport security automation, partnered with Xandar Kardian for deployments at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in the Netherlands. At Schiphol, the utilization of Xandar Kardian’s patented UWB radar technology has resulted in significant reductions in operating expenses while providing 24/7 security.
Robert Schuur, GRASP’s co-founder, said its partnership with Xandar Kardian is rooted in providing accurate data that allows security professionals to optimize their time and resources and be proactive to security issues rather than reactive. “It’s our business to develop tools that help security professionals make optimal use of available resources and infrastructure in ever-changing circumstances,” he said. “Change in the aviation sector was inevitable due to Covid. Before the pandemic, airports mainly focused on growth and improving their efficiency. Now, it’s all about becoming flexible in using resources and the infrastructure available. With our solutions we connect human-based data (gathered with Xandar Kardian’s sensors) to relevant technologies, which then provides clear insights to optimize the use of resources and infrastructure in any given situation, enabling security professionals to take immediate action if necessary and solve problems before they arise.”
At Orion ECI, the team has partnered with Xandar Kardian for its new Constellation brand of security solutions. Orion specializes in entrance control security systems, and the Constellation line is specifically geared toward facility managers looking to optimize space utilization in the new era of the workplace. The Constellation devices utilize Xandar Kardian technology for presence detection to automate “hot desking,” conference room use, lighting and HVAC system control, and in-and-out counting.
“We searched the world for the best occupancy sensor technology and Xandar Kardian was clearly the only choice,” said Orion CEO and Founder Steve Caroselli. “Not only is their presence detection technology incredibly accurate, but they also have worldwide distribution and case studies across commercial real estate, health care, banking, corrections, transportation, retail, and security. The added data pushed into the Orion Infinity ecosystem makes for a powerful integration into any building environment.”
