SGR-1 By Samsung

Hey Everyone! Thanks for checking out my blog this week!

I found this camera a long time ago and was happy to have found it again.

The SGR-1 Security Guard Robot from Samsung Techwin uses state of the art surveillance technology – and an optional ‘lethal weapon’ – to make it a real-life Robocop.

Developed initially for use in the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), the SGR-1 integrates a number of surveillance technologies, including low light-high resolution and thermal cameras, alongside a Laser Range Finder and ‘suppression’ systems – offering the use of an ‘acoustic device’, which emits a tone powerful enough to make intruders nauseous and drop to the ground; and machine guns equipped with real or rubber bullets.
“Unexpected intrusions often call for immediate action,” the product’s sales literature says.
“The remote controlled system is unparalleled for quick response and all systems are designed for superior protection solutions. The lethal or non-lethal weapon is installed for various missions.
“The Universal Gun Mount enables to install different types of machine gun at the request of the customer, with a stabilisation device for accurate shooting.
“The SGR-1 allows for unprecedented target recognition at all hours to provide the ultimate protection from intrusion. This innovative technology consists of multiple integrated systems to make security more affordable and effective than ever.”

Automated detection
The unit’s Surveillance Module consists of a low light, high resolution camera and a thermal camera, which are able to provide automated detection for unidentified objects.
“The Universal Gun Mount enables to install different types of machine gun at the request of the customer, with a stabilisation device for accurate shooting.”
This is synchronised with the Tracking Module, which is designed to select and track a prioritised target automatically or manually with optimised software.
Users can control the system for operation, management and command through the control center operating software. There is also an optional independent Control Console – which looks like the most amazing arcade game in the world. But is potentially deadly.
The SGR-1 is designed to work with the rest of Samsung Techwin’s Integrated Surveillance and Security System, incorporating a ground surveillance camera for wide area surveillance, an intelligent camera for target detecting and tracking, and rapid response strike team.
Samsung Techwin suggests that the system could be used for border security, transportation nodes such as airports and seaports, critical infrastructure, including power plants, pipelines, dams and historic sites, and military bases.
The SGR-1 itself is priced around the $400,000 mark, but Samsung Techwin believes the entire system could be of interest to major town centres, allowing them to very tightly integrate and track their security concerns.
