Silent Sentinel has been chosen as a provider for the US Department of Defense after it reached the finals of the ‘Build the Base of the Future’ challenge of the US Air Force.

The company is a part of the Team Phosonic Perimeter Security Sensors and Analytics Platform (PSSAP), which provides sensor systems, machine learning algorithms and autonomous alert notifications for US Air Force Security Forces.

It also provided infrared, electro-optical and tracking systems for the solution.

The team participated in the ‘Base Security and Defense’ challenge, to showcase perimeter security and actionable intelligence, which is affordable and comprehensive.

The focus of the challenge was on how the new installations are used by USAF to analyse and enhance the security and defence systems.

The challenge called for solutions to construct an agile airbase of the future, which is protected from threats such as explosives and cyber attacks.

Six topics were the centre of the challenge, namely base security, installation resilience, leveraging technology for operational effectiveness, reverse engineering, culture of innovation, and airman and family wellbeing.

Silent Sentinel MD Paul Elsey said: “The Build the Base of the Future Challenge has provided a timely opportunity to showcase Silent Sentinel’s electro-optical expertise.

“We are committed to growing our footprint in the United States, providing innovative and reliable security systems to suit the needs of the US Department of Defense.”

Headquartered in the UK, Silent Sentinel provides surveillance and security systems to customers in more than 50 countries around the world.
