Smarter Surveillance for a Safer World


To make the world safer through the power of visual AI.

What We Do

IntelliSee is a powerful risk mitigation platform that uses advanced artificial intelligence developed for the U.S. Department of Defense to identify threats to human safety.

IntelliSee works by tapping into live surveillance feeds and scanning the environment for hazards. If a threat is detected, IntelliSee instantly validates the threat and sends real-time alerts to the people and systems who can act.

Alerts include information such as the nature, visuals and location of the threat, giving end-users the time and necessary insight to take preventative action.

IntelliSee’s algorithms are continually trained to detect a wide range of threats, including the presence of drawn weapons, active shooters, intruders, slip and fall hazards, assaults, and markers of potential assaults. As the platform evolves, the types of threats IntelliSee detects will continue to expand.

How We Complement Security Teams:

Although the number of surveillance cameras in use today has increased dramatically, most still rely on the human eye to detect a threat. IntelliSee complements a security team by autonomously and continuously monitoring multiple cameras at a time to detect key threats, allowing staff to spend less time on repetitive, error-prone tasks like video monitoring, and more time taking protective action—from mopping up spills before someone slips to intervening when an incident escalates.

Because IntelliSee works with existing cameras, no additional security devices need to be installed for the platform to work. And because IntelliSee cannot be distracted, panic or become incapacitated during an incident, mitigating actions can be taken quickly yet subtly.

Commitment to Privacy

IntelliSee is committed to protecting the privacy of customers and the people they serve. IntelliSee’s technology does not scan for any personal features and avoids the use of facial recognition and other increasing concerns enabled by artificial intelligence.

 IntelliSee does not and will never capture, store, or sell any data containing personally identifying information.

IntelliSee is an AI-based risk mitigation platform that autonomously and continuously scans live surveillance footage to proactively identify situations that threaten human safety and cause financial harm.

When a hazard is detected, IntelliSee alerts designated contacts and systems to the nature and location of the threat in real-time, giving the user the insight to take preventative action.

A note about privacy: AI is a powerful capability that can provide many benefits to society. Like many breakthroughs, technology advancements are outpacing norms and governing regulations defining the boundaries of acceptable use. IntelliSee does not employ the use of facial recognition or other capabilities that enter the gray area between safety and personal privacy. No personally identifiable information (PII), data capture, storage or use has been enabled—directly or indirectly—through the IntelliSee platform.

Risk Detection Modules:

IntelliSee currently offers two risk modules: Weapon, which identifies the presence of drawn guns and knives, and Slip & Fall, which identifies spills, leaks and other common sources of slipping hazards, as well as the presence of a fallen person.

Two additional risk modules are currently in the late stage of development. The first, Person, will detect both the absence (e.g. no-shows) and presence (e.g. trespassing) of people on premise, and markers of potential threats (e.g. presence of masks)—all without the use of invasive facial recognition technology. The second, Assault, will detect abusive behaviors and assault, as well as postural and gestural markers of impending violence, abuse, bullying and fights.

Through continuous research and machine-learning enabled through its neural network, IntelliSee’s threat detection platform will continuously deepen within these first four modules. It will also expand beyond them to cover a growing number of risks.

Product Launch Information:

IntelliSee is currently installed in several locations as part of its live beta test process. Current test clients include K12 and higher education installations, with health care and private sector installations pending. Beta tests will conclude late Q3, 2020 with market launch anticipated in mid-Q4, 2020.

Company Background

IntelliSee’s story began more than 15 years ago, when the University of Iowa Technology Institute was selected to conduct leading-edge research on behalf of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to improve the safety and performance of soldiers.

As a result of this decades-old relationship, Malum Terminus Technologies—and the capabilities that now power IntelliSee—were created to better the world through the power of artificial intelligence.

Malum Terminus Technologies was granted the exclusive Intellectual Property (IP) rights to bring the technologies used to improve the safety and performance of our soldiers to other sectors—from schools to hospitals, private business and more—bringing us one step closer to achieving our vision.

Research & Development:

As research continues, IntelliSee’s team of researchers and developers are working hand-in-hand with the University to ensure the continued evolution of IntelliSee’s platform.

Base research and the power of machine learning via IntelliSee’s neural network means the types of threats and risks detected will continue to deepen and expand on the platform. The platform will also continue to further integrate with clients’ existing VMS/Security Platforms as an expanding part of their overall physical security ecosystem.


1981 – University of Iowa’s Center for Computer-Aided Design (CCAD) founded.

1994 – Dr. Malek joins University of Iowa’s Department of Biomedical Engineering and begins the Robotics Lab within the CCAD.

2003 – Dr. Malek establishes the Virtual Soldier Research (VSR) program and Santos, a virtual soldier, with the US Army Tank Automotive Command (TACOMM). VSR receives nearly $9M in research and development funding from Congress and the Department of Defense.

2005 – Dr. Karim Malek is appointed head of Iowa’s CCAD / Technology Institute.

2008 – 2010 – SantosHuman Inc (SHI) is formed; caterpillar partners with VSR efforts and Santos is adopted for development and use by the US Council for Automotive Research (USCAR).

2011 – Dr. Malek is elected as a Fellow with the American Institute of Media and Biomedical Engineering.

2012 – Sophia, the virtual soldier, is developed to complement Santos. VSR is awarded $10M by the Office of Naval Research to develop GruntSim (Enhanced Technologies for Optimizing the Warfighter Load).

2015 – GruntSim simulator is released to the US Marines. VSR is awarded nearly $3M in additional research and development funding by the US Marines to develop Malum Terminus, a simulation system for injury prediction and human performance.

2018 – Malum is formed by Dr. Malek, Dr. Kreger, Dr. Bhatt, and Mr. Evans; IntelliSee development initiates.

2019 – Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Clay join the initiative; Malum Terminus Technologies Inc. is incorporated and Series A capital is raised.

2020 – Scott Keplinger joins the team as CEO. IntelliSee risk mitigation platform is live tested in K-12 and higher education facilities with a market launch planned for Q4. Maureen Pajerski joins the team as Chief Commercial Officer to build distribution network.
