After three years of diligence, Knightscope’s efforts were rewarded with an Authority to Operate from FedRAMP, opening the door for new stakeholders to begin evaluating the use of Knightscope technologies among other federal departments and agencies.

“The ‘K5 GOV’ designation reflects an entirely new hardware and software architecture to comply with stringent U.S. Federal Government requirements and simplifies agency adoption and procurement. I am grateful for the efforts of our relentless Knightscope team, and we are honored to play a small part in serving our Nation’s veterans,” said William Santana Li, Chairman and CEO, Knightscope, Inc.
