Honeywell, Louisville, Ky., recently announced new radar capabilities for its line of Vindicator security systems used to protect high-profile locations such as large commercial properties, government facilities and military installations. Honeywell’s Vindicator customers will have access to SpotterRF’s series of Compact Surveillance Radar systems, which can be used to detect intruders along perimeters when traditional ground surveillance radar systems are not practical.

The devices — which weigh less than 4 pounds, use standard Ethernet cables and feature built-in Web servers — are highly effective in monitoring wide areas, Honeywell described. For example, these radars currently are used to protect infrastructure such bridges, dams, oil fields and even wildlife.

“Vindicator users need the highest level of security, and SpotterRF’s compact surveillance radar technology meets that goal with its ability to monitor expansive areas,” said Brian Holmes, director of Government Sales and Special Programs at Honeywell Vindicator. “These systems are proven to be effective in homeland security-type applications, which makes them a perfect fit with the Vindicator portfolio.”

Nearly 1,000 SpotterRF compact surveillance radars have been deployed across the world, the companies stated.

“Our channels of distribution are expanding rapidly,” said Logan Harris, CEO for SpotterRF, with headquarters in Orem, Utah. “Ease of installation, industry-standard integration, powerful functionality and our aggressive pricing model make SpotterRF radar a great fit in areas not previously open to radar.”

Honeywell’s Vindicator group has more than 30 years of experience providing high-end perimeter intrusion detection systems. Combining Vindicator’s highly secure Command and Control platform with SpotterRF is an ideal solution for securing perimeters at critical infrastructure sites such as power generation, chemical and oil and gas facilities, Honeywell stated. Vindicator’s integration to Honeywell’s Pro-Watch® Access Control and MAXPRO® Video Management System allows customers to have an end-to-end security solution from a single manufacturer, the company described.
