The VANGUARD Solutions Suite strengthens Situational Awareness and immediate force protection by fusing tactical & technical solutions providing various layers of defense. ShadowTech merges your security needs with the VANGUARD solutions to maximize your situational awareness, protect your assets, and allow for the most effective tactical response.

The VANGUARD technology backbone, comprised of a robust, node-based system architecture with peer-to-peer network connectivity and an integrated sensor array, transfers critical tactical intelligence to the security response force.

Advanced Video Patrol (AVP)

The Advanced Video Patrol (AVP) solution encompasses all aspects of the tactical first line of defense. This solution ensures the security force an advantage over the adversary through the immediate presentation of critical tactical data. AVP delivers 360° detection and assessment coverage optimizing real-time situational awareness through ShadowTech’s Tactical User Interface (TUI).

AVP advantages include:

  • Net-Centric
    • Allows for multiple stand-alone systems to communicate (wireless or hardwired) creating a peer-to-peer network. Utilizing this network, the system allows operators (local or remote) to monitor and control any number of assigned assets.
  • Force Multiplication
    • Node-based system architecture allows operators to actively monitor their immediate area of responsibility, detect & assess potential threats and disseminate critical tactical data.
  • Robust Network
    • Encrypted Wireless, Cellular, and/or Hardwired network communication. A peer-to-peer network is the backbone to AVP’s integrated and redundant system effectiveness.


A rapidly deployable detection and assessment solution, Sentinel strengthens your security strategy by maximizing your existing security force. Sentinel boosts tactical response though immediate detection and assessment of potential intrusions or adversaries.

Sentinel advantages include:

  • Force Multiplication
    • Deployment of the system in place of man power.
      Remote Detection & Assessment Allows monitoring stations to remotely detect and assess alarms from multiple SENTINEL systems.
  • Modular & Scalable
    • Maximizes flexibility for deployment in any situation as the mission dictates.
  • Robust Network
    • Encrypted Wireless, Cellular, and/or Hardwired, network communication.
  • Integrated Sensor Array
    • Integration with a wide range of sensors to ensure the highest probability of detection for each deployment specific application.
    • Some integrated sensors include
      • Intrusion Detection Systems: Active Infrared, Microwave, Fiber Optic, etc
      • Fixed and PTZ cameras
      • Unattended Ground Sensors
      • Video Analytics & Motion Detection
      • Ground-based Radar
