SpotterRF was founded in 2008 to develop and manufacture Compact Surveillance Radar to protect troops deployed around the world from harm. In 2013, SpotterRF saw the need for an innovative and user-friendly commercial product to protect critical infrastructure. Since that time, SpotterRF has expanded its offering to include models and form factors that cover areas ranging from 1 acre to 380 acres and verticals that go far beyond critical infrastructure. This allows them to ensure they fulfill their mission of Harm Prevented.
SpotterRF imagines, designs, manufactures, and supports ground and aerial Compact Surveillance Radar in the United States at their HQ in Orem UT. Additionally, their software is built from the ground-up in Orem with dedicated personnel that ensures the highest quality and concern for customer security.
I am excited to lead SpotterRF’s groundbreaking Radar technology and team of amazing people as the company moves forward towards changing the perimeter security landscape through “beyond-state-of-the-art Radar technology” and “disruptive” innovations. The SpotterRF mission is simple…to prevent harm to our troops and critical infrastructure. SpotterRF has changed the way we view Radars in much the same way Apple did with the mobile phone and the end result will be very similar as we continue to commoditize Radars. These are exciting times to be in the “Radar business” and I am extremely proud to be heading up SpotterRF, the “Apple” of Radar technology.Frank Christophersen, CEO, SpotterRF
