Cocoa Beach, Fla. – February 4, 2014 – A Florida-based security and surveillance tech company, Quantum Technology Sciences has secured $2,300,000 of investment from an initial funding round led by private investors to commercialize the company’s groundbreaking technology.
Quantum developed technology to establish a real-time intrusion notification system to detect threats from the air, water, land and underground.
As concerns over critical infrastructure and border security become increasingly prevalent, companies especially in the energy sector require security and surveillance solutions to ensure uptime and protect assets.
The company’s product line combines patent-pending, buried, vibration sensors with a sophisticated suite of proprietary detection and classification algorithms that offers significantly greater detection range than is currently available on the market. Additionally, their products don’t require a line of sight to an intruder, which prevents a threat from being obscured by weather, darkness, or other structures. Quantum’s products can identify and track multiple threats simultaneously from a single device.
“There are solutions out there to detect intruders at and within a security perimeter,” says Quantum CEO Mark Tinker, Ph.D. “Quantum’s paradigm shift comes from the ability to classify the location and type of intrusion not only at and within a security perimeter, but well beyond, out to a more extensive awareness perimeter. Proactive security is the result, where threats can be identified and more effectively deterred or neutralized before doing harm.”
“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. I recently hosted six entrepreneur summits for local innovators such as Quantum. Their success is a prime example of the strong entrepreneurial spirit and innovation along Florida’s Space Coast. With the help of the community, we look forward to helping entrepreneurs like Quantum grow their business and demonstrate their amazing work here along the Space Coast,” said Congressman Bill Posey (FL-8).
The commercialization effort will create a number of high-value Florida jobs. This investment will allow the company to focus on commercial growth by accelerating the time to market.
