[Nasdaq: KSCP] (“Knightscope” or the “Company”), a leading developer of autonomous security robots and blue light emergency communication systems, today announces a new contract with a California supplier of semiconductor final-test, system-level test sockets and thermal control units for one 5th Generation K5 Autonomous Security Robot (“ASR”) and two K1 Hemispheres (“K1H”).
The client’s procurement/purchasing team sought out advanced technologies in an effort to reduce guarding costs while protecting its domestic chip production, testing and research facility. According to the Semiconductor Industry Association, prioritizing and investing in supply chain security is key to protecting the future of everything from automotive semiconductors to information and communications technologies.
The K5 ASR will patrol the manufacturing floor indoors among high-end test equipment and supplies.
