The platform is fully integrated into existing VMS (video management system) and PSIM (physical security information management) infrastructure and offers surveillance automation with real-time detection, tracking, and classification.

“Athena aims to provide our clients with the highest performing and most comprehensive solutions available,” said Vishnu Choudhary, CEO of Athena Security Solutions. “Partnering with Quanergy will give us the ability to follow through on that goal by providing the Indian market with increased access to industry-leading lidar technology, offering customized solutions specifically designed and tested for Indian conditions and industry-specific applications.”

Athena works with corporate and governmental organizations across India and has successfully secured several prestigious projects working with its partners, including the Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System (CIBMS) for the Border Security Force and, most recently, the protection of key defense facilities in India. In addition, Athena has secured and executed projects for refineries, ports, pipelines, police, educational institutions, and manufacturing and power plants.
