The location of the shooter is instantly pinpointed and sent to the police.
That's because Guardian “hears” and “sees” gunshots using sound and infrared technology and notifies law enforcement and school officials immediately and automatically using the Internet. It provides not only a notification, but a graphic of the school’s layout with the shooter’s location pinpointed.
Response time is reduced from 18 minutes to just a few.
Guardian Indoor Gunshot Detection system incorporates the world’s finest acoustic gunshot detection software and combines it with infrared gunfire flash detector to produce the most capable indoor gunshot detection system available today. The system’s dual modality provides the highest rate of detection while bringing the number of potential false alerts to zero.
And this is not just a "drawing board" idea or a prototype. We know Guardian works.
Guardian is already erasing time in a handful of schools and public buildings.
Over $45 million dollars of research and development has been invested by the US Government and a defense contractor to mature this capability. The technology has saved the lives of countless military men and women overseas.
We have repurposed that military grade technology specifically for a school environment. The Guardian devices are barely visible to teachers and children walking by them in the halls - no more visible than a fire alarm.
Many corporations and public venues have installed the system but only a handful of schools due to budgetary issues. It just takes too long to get this lifesaving technology installed in schools.
That's why we're doing this "Early Response To Active Shooter Events" crowdfunding campaign. It's an important start.
Contribute to our crowdfunding campaign on November 12th and you will help us erase precious response time and save lives.
