Active shooter incidents in the U.S. are rising dramatically each year, and there is a growing need for actionable intelligence to combat these threats in the moment. In response to this risk, Shooter Detection Systems has developed gunshot detection technology that is designed to save lives and minimize the destruction caused during mass shooting incidents. SDS has 14 million hours of installed time in real-world environments with zero false alerts. It enables instant communication through e-mail and text message, with additional notification pathways such as access control, alarm panels, video management, mass notification, digital radios, and mobile application technologies. Because active shooter situations often occur within 10- to 15-minute windows, every individual second counts.
