About Us
BPS technologies are primarily targeted at security markets requiring optimal power solutions, bandwidth sensitive, demanding special purpose visual data recording sensors.

Our pioneering commitment and expertise developed in house during past five years here in Estonia is focused on developing core technologies built around our own innovative audio video compression platforms.  Enabling, Total Turn Key solutions integrating mobile sensors in the field with built in wireless options connecting real time streaming compressed proprietary data content to the BPS server side complete with secured on line event handling and real time Database interfaces.

Developed, primarily to meet threats at remote sites, temporary or in transit sensitive cargo and vulnerable confrontational situations. Together with UK partner Promethes BPS are currently working to effect technology transfer of special purpose vision analysis techniques for use in our visual sensor products for next generation mobile and fixed surveillance devices towards major public infrastructures airports, shopping malls and hospitals. End users secured for this technology include Airports operator BAA, Dublin Airport and French Rail operators SYTRAL.
