Military/Department of Defense

Protect Property, People, & Equipment

Rapid deployment, secure communications, and autonomy have allowed SentryPODS® to quickly become the preferred choice for perimeter security within the military/DOD sectors.

SentryPODS® contain intelligence at the edge as well as built in redundancy for network/power failover. In the event of mayhem or local service outages, SentryPODS® seamlessly failover to an alternative network (in most cases, LTE) and internal batteries for independent functionality. Wherever critical infrastructure exists, SentryPODS® provide a superior level of protection in any environment.

While a SentryPODS® unit can serve as a video capturing endpoint on an existing traditional LTE or Ethernet network, the ability to deploy rapidly and function autonomously is where the greater value of SentryPODS® resides.  A wide variety of power and connectivity options are available and can be tailored to the specific mission requirements providing a vast array of deployment options.

 

Quickly & Securely Connect from Anywhere

Detect, Assess, and deter potential threats without connection headaches. Network connectivity options include lte, local wi-fi, hard-wired connections, satcom, and more.

Network connectivity can occur with the following options:

  • Cell tower coverage, LTE (default)
  • Local Wi-Fi; SentryPODS® can serve as a Wi-Fi hotspot to provide internet connectivity to local devices such as a tablets or laptops utilizing digital security certificates to ensure secure transmission of data
  • Hard-wire connection (traditional Ethernet LAN/WAN network environment)
  • SATCOM service provider
  • Point-to-point wireless connection (Cambium Network radios for example, long distance wireless connection)

Power can be sourced from the following:

  • Existing AC 110V power (grid or generator)
  • Internal batteries (24-48-hours on short term deployments and are hot-swappable as needed)
  • Solar power (SentryPODS® standalone unit available or can be connected to existing arrays)

A typical SentryPODS® deployment will occur where there is no existing conventional network, but cell connectivity is available. Quite often, cellular connectivity is more cost effective than building out a remote network. In this scenario, each SentryPODS® unit will have DHS-encrypted secure connectivity using digital security certificates for end-to-end secure connections through the web via multiple cell carrier options with redundant LTE failover between carriers.

WHAT THE MILITARY LOVES ABOUT SentryPODS®

case-points
  • Acts as a virtual sentry (security guard) with stellar video verification, infrared and motion detection capabilities.
  • Autonomous (connectivity can be private/public LTE, Ethernet, SAT COMM, SIPRNet or WiFi) enabling deployment free from the constraints of vulnerable wired connections
  • Rapid deployment (Typically 3-5 minutes)
  • Remotely accessible for video and power management
  • Send remote notifications for events or status changes
  • Archive video directly to the edge for remote retrieval
  • Provides power and network redundancy capabilities
  • Failover to battery and send notifications upon power loss
  • Hot swappable batteries
  • Inferred Video Capability
  • Motion Detection
  • NEMA 4x rated enclosure that can withstand the most hostile environments
  • SentryPODS® can be enabled as Wi-Fi hotspots to facilitate internet accessibility

The key features of the SentryPODS® system is its mobility, speed of deployment and autonomy. While a SentryPODS® unit can serve as a video capturing endpoint on an existing traditional LTE or Ethernet network, the ability to deploy rapidly and function autonomously is where the greater value of SentryPODS® resides.  A wide variety of power and connectivity options are available and can be tailored to the specific mission requirements providing a vast array of deployment options.
