Knightscope, Inc. Strongly Positioned for Growth in U.S. Security Market Anticipated to Exceed $53.65 Billion by 2025

  • Knightscope, Inc. is positioned to disrupt the security market with unique technology and artificial intelligence capabilities
  • Autonomous security robots currently on the market from Knightscope require no human intervention and recharge themselves
  • The K5 model has exceeded the 1 million operational hour mark, with three winters under its belt (still going strong)

The scene begins at an undisclosed airport in Texas. The Knightscope K5 makes its way onto the screen, landing safely on the airstrip. Despite the dramatization in the YouTube ad, and the mention that K5 robots do not have flying capabilities (for now, at least), the message is clear: Knightscope’s autonomous security robots (“ASR”) are taking off ( This is just one of several short promotional videos designed to illustrate the versatility and multiple uses of Knightscope’s innovative security solutions.

Founded in Mountain View, California, in 2013, Knightscope is a leader in the development of autonomous security capabilities – including the K5 model featured in the airport security video. The Knightscope K5 was primarily designed to be an outdoor autonomously recharging security technology that runs 24/7. Designed for securing large outdoor areas, the K5 has already been operated for over 1 million hours in the field, including now operating in its 4th winter.

The Knightscope K5 is great for deployment in a variety of locations besides airports, including but not limited to hospitals, police departments, logistics facilities, commercial properties, data centers, parking structures, municipalities, warehouses, stadiums, casinos, gas stations and more. The K5 features traveling speeds of up to 3 mph and can be utilized in indoor and outdoor settings. Its versatile design makes it great for any of the venues mentioned. The K5 weighs almost 400 pounds and stands over five-feet tall, making it a true force to be reckoned with as a form of physical deterrence.

Overall, the ASR models in circulation from Knightscope are on target to disrupt the security industry with the unique technology that combines automated robot power with artificial intelligence. 

Knightscope has positioned itself as a leading presence in a global security market that is expected to reach $1.67 trillion by 2025, as indicated in a new report from Grand View Research, Inc. The market is set to expand at a CAGR of 10.3%, resulting in substantial growth ( North America, with an anticipated market size of $53.15 billion, is expected to lead this global market. And Knightscope is in the center of this market, leading the way with autonomous security straight from the Silicon Valley.

Knightscope’s other ASRs include the award-winning K1 stationary indoor/outdoor model, the K3 indoor ASR, and more in development – all integrated with the Knightscope Security Operations Center, an intuitive platform that features real-time data feeds to better secure the places where people work, study or visit. The Knightscope Security Operations Center provides multiple features that include, among others:

  • Force multiplying physical deterrence
  • 360-degree HD video streaming
  • People detection
  • Facial recognition
  • Automatic license plate recognition
  • Thermal anomaly detection
  • Automatic signal detection
  • Autonomous charging
  • Two-way intercom system

The company’s ASRs have already assisted in multiple crime-fighting operations, including robbery to hit-and-runs (and everything in between). The machine-embedded thermal scanning capabilities even aided in the prevention of a major fire breaking out.

As of December 2020, Knightscope had more than 17,000 investors backing its technologies. Although plans for a public offering are still in the works, Knightscope has already reserved the ticker symbol ‘KSCP.’ Currently, the private offering is handled through StartEngine Primary, LLC.
