learn about RDARS

We are an early-stage robotics and drone technology company in the process of developing various autonomous technologies, including, a drone which augments security systems for residential, commercial and industrial applications. Our platforms, include, a drone aircraft, drone station and unmanned autonomous ground vehicles, that enable real-time alarm response, verification, intervention, reporting, and evidence recording.

We are in the final stages of development of our production level designs for the three main products: The aerial drone and its respective ground station - Eagle Eye and Eagle Nest – with stages of testing and the first units expected to be ready for production in Q3 2022. The development of the Eagle Rover is scheduled to be completed in Q1 2023.

We are also developing an entire suite of software applications – Eagle Watch - which maintain, control and secure the communications and data received from these autonomous systems. The software will ultimately be controlled by redundant command and control centers to be deployed at the first center in Miami, Florida during Q4 2022.

Eagle Eye System and Application

The Company is in the process of developing and building a beyond visual line of sight (“BVLOS”) certified fully autonomous drone in a box system for security alarm augmentation. The Eagle Watch Platform being developed by the Company would combine a fully autonomous drone system Eagle Eye and a drone station, Eagle Nest, to house and secure the drone, as well as an internal autonomous ground robotic system, Eagle Rover, integrated into an existing alarm system (the “Eagle Watch System”).

When an alarm is triggered, the internal Eagle Robot or external Eagle Eye drone will automatically travel and/or fly to the zone where the alarm was triggered and provide real time sensor information from the area to the Company’s trained response team personnel at the Command and Control Center. Live video and audio are captured and recorded to validate and verify the situation, and to provide needed confirmation for police and other emergency service response.

Features of the Eagle Eye System are:

Dispatch – upon an alarm being triggered, the robotic systems will automatically be dispatched to the zone where the alarm is triggered and provide data in real time. This data is then transmitted to the Command & Control Centre for trained drone pilots and personnel to respond accordingly. This data can be shared to multiple stakeholders and simultaneously be provided to Alarm Monitoring Stations, Emergency Services, Police, Fire, and Ambulance or such other Active Agencies as deemed appropriate.

Evidence Recording – Video and audio are captured, recorded and stored for an unlimited amount of time, depending on the needs of the customer. Evidence is never lost and can be reviewed at any time.

The Command and Control Center software Eagle Watch V1.0 contains a security video recording system, similar to a DVR which, in the production version, authorized users may use to view recorded media and if necessary download and provide media to other groups like internal security, executive management or law enforcement.

RDARS, working with its channel partners, will have strict rules for the release of any data belonging to a customer and will require various methods of authentication for release of sensitive data.

Payloads – Eagle Eye and Eagle Rover are equipped with multiple payload sensors enabling a wide range of vital information, including high resolution video and audio. Additionally, both Eagle Eye and Eagle Rover have onboard object detection and collision avoidance systems to protect themselves and property.

Autonomous Return to Home – Eagle Eye and Eagle Rover both have autonomous return to home capability. In the case of Eagle Eye the drone will return to its Nest, and land easily in its cradle where it can be safely stored inside it's Nest until the next mission.

Therefore, even if a remote attacker were to gain access to a drone and its secure certificate, without having knowledge of the method or the anti-replay system, the communication would fail and alert the Command & Control Center IT staff that a breach had occurred. Data is generally transmitted over the facility/location internet connection via WiFi. The Eagle Eye drone and Eagle Nest stations both have redundant communications and will switch over to cellular should the WiFi not be working.

The Eagle Watch System should provide a more complete picture of an ongoing situation given its mobility, which the Company expects will give the Eagle Watch an advantage over fixed cameras and be more cost effective than human personnel. By providing video and audio in different modes (like thermal infrared), the Eagle Watch System is expected to provide a more holistic view of a facility

real-time data transmission

RDARS uses a unique method to transact data to and from its remote robotic systems. Each device is issued a secure 4096bit RSA certificate at the final stage of manufacturing, each transmission to and from the drone uses this secure certificate for authentication. Additionally, each transmission has an encrypted timestamp containing two values which are randomly generated using a secure algorithm, preventing replay type attacks.

Therefore, even if a remote attacker were to gain access to a drone and its secure certificate, without having knowledge of the method or the anti-replay system, the communication would fail and alert the Command & Control Center IT staff that a breach had occurred. Data is generally transmitted over the facility/location internet connection via WiFi. The Eagle Eye drone and Eagle Nest stations both have redundant communications and will fail over to cellular should the WiFi not be working.

Upon an alarm being triggered, the robotic systems will transmit real-time video and audio allowing the Company’s trained response team personnel at the Command & Control Center to verify what is happening and if necessary, contact emergency services, the property owner and other stakeholders for the customer account.

The Company is currently testing advanced features like facial recognition, ALPR (Automated License Plate Recognition) and other authentication and authorization methods that its robotic systems may employ.

The system will allow a trained Pilot with a part 107 license at the Command & Control Center to take control and be able to fly the drone on the premises, and to intervene in order to gather information as is deemed necessary.
