Five more schools be Awarded RAD’s ROSS AI-based security solution
Detroit, Michigan, Jan. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (the “Company”) (OTCPK:AITX), a global leader in AI-powered safety and productivity solutions for enterprise customers, together with its wholly-owned subsidiary Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD) , today announced an extension of the ‘Bailey’s Gift’ campaign, ‘Bailey’s 5’.
The campaign will see RAD donate at least five ROSS AI-based security solutions to eligible K-12 schools in the United States. The program is named in honor of the fifth anniversary of the shooting at Marshall County High School in rural Kentucky, which took the lives of Bailey Holt and Preston Cope, both 15 years old, on January 23, 2018. Eighteen other students were injured in the mass shooting, four while they tried to escape the shooter. Bailey Holt’s mother, Secret Holt, attended the announcement.

ROSS (RAD Operations System Software) is RAD’s software solution that enables millions of legacy IP security cameras that have been previously installed to connect to the RAD ecosystem (RADSoC). ROSS allows these non-RAD cameras to run the same AI analytics capabilities as other RAD hardware solutions, including firearms, people, vehicles, perimeter breach and hover detection and more. With ROSS, RAD makes its advanced security technology available to a wider range of customers and strengthens its position as a leader in AI-powered safety and security solutions.
“I am so thrilled that RAD is expanding ‘Bailey’s Gift’ to now include ‘Bailey’s 5.’ Their technology is truly amazing and we are so blessed to be a part of RAD’s mission,” said Secret Holt. “There is no valid reason why schools should have any reluctance or hesitation to add the ROSS technology to their existing security systems. I encourage all schools to apply for consideration.”
RAD’s firearm detection identifies the presence of sidearms and long firearms. Immediately upon detection of a firearm, RAD’s AI-powered analytics can autonomously perform a series of actions, including appropriate activation of a local audible and visual alarm, locking and securing of electronic doors, notifications to remote monitoring or onsite security personnel and law enforcement – ideally before shots are fired.
“I see a time when this technology runs on all so-called security cameras,” said Steve Reinharz, CEO of AITX and RAD. “Existing cameras are nothing but evidence cameras, they are used for investigation. They are not security cameras, they collect evidence. Our whole mantra is about intelligent autonomous response. We intend to turn these cameras into devices that protect by autonomously initiating locking procedures , messages, law enforcement contacts and more. Seconds save lives.” Watch Reinharz’s video message here https://youtu.be/bZHWW-dlvt8
The company believes there are more than 100,000 K-12 schools that could immediately benefit from this firearm detection technology. RAD’s hardware and software solutions are rapidly deployed and provide a non-intrusive level of early detection and deterrence to potential firearm-related incidents in and around these buildings.
Doug Clemons, Chief Marketing Officer at RAD, said: “We know countless schools could benefit from RAD’s ROSS software solution by adding it to their already deployed security network. This is our way of giving back to the community and making a real impact on school safety.”
Interested schools can apply for consideration at radsecurity.com/baileys-5/. Terms and conditions apply, see website for details.
Through the ‘Bailey’s Gift’ campaign, announced in July 2022, RAD selected 11 applicants to receive ROSA firearms technology units. Schools selected received, schools selected for the program are located in Michigan, Illinois, Kentucky, Florida, New Mexico and California. Several schools have received and implemented their ROSA devices, while the rest of the schools are now finalizing the implementation process. Further announcements are expected in the future.
