The Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV is a cost-effective, multi-terrain, mobile sensor platform that can capture video, audio and environmental data, while providing a visible deterrent. The data it provides can enhance outdoor surveillance, security, safety and maintenance inspections, which will help organizations meet the challenges of an ever-changing security landscape by augmenting a skilled security officer force. The Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV's ruggedized design is ideally suited for customers with expansive outdoor properties that USA serves.

Richard L. Wyckoff, President and CEO of USA, shared "in addition to acting as an additional deterrent for criminal activity, the real value new technologies, like the Sharp INTELLOS A-UGV, offers is mining site-specific data in areas inhospitable or too cumbersome for traditional officer patrols and providing insights, compliance and recommendations that maximize the Total Value to ProtectSM. Robotics, that enable data-driven technologies, should be a key consideration when putting together a comprehensive security and safety program. Robotics and drones will increasingly play a major role in complementing a traditional officer force and USA intends to expand our capabilities to ensure leading edge technology is available to our customers."
