DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - A new security camera soon to be assembled in Dayton could change the way our airports, police departments, and even our military keep us safe.
During a news conference Monday, November, 30, Mayor Rhine McLin
and other city leaders cheered for Tech Town and a brand new high
tech security camera that can "see" several miles away.
Dayton company STAN Solutions' partner, Israel based Adaptive Imaging Technologies, recently won a "Most Promising Security Start-Up" award for their high resolution, panoramic camera.
It is still in production mode, but officials said its like 50
cameras in one, and can monitor and observe areas up to six miles
STAN Solutions is partnering with the University of Dayton's Institute for Development and Commercialization of Advanced Sensor Technology (IDCAST) to expand the camera's capabilities with additional night time sensors.
IDCAST Director Larrell Walters said this camera its ideal for border patrol, police departments, college campuses, and security at airports.
"If police were trying to catch a bad guy, you could follow him for miles and track him down," Walters said.
Each camera costs less than $100,000.
