We conducted testing by firing guns from different locations and in various directions. Sensors are capable of working independently of each other, so we collected information on each individual sensor. Though all of our sensors functioned properly during testing, we did encounter a few unique scenarios. ATD is wired to detect threats within a 500 foot radius. However, our technology is powerful enough that outliers can and do occur. We fired shots from approximately 600 feet out, and each of our sensors responded to the sound of the ballistic. Additionally, we tested to see how our sensors would respond when a shot was fired from inside of our testing facility. Sensor 1009, which was mounted inside during this test on the second day, responded promptly as expected. In addition, sensor 1008 also detected the indoor shot from outside. Lastly, the sensors were successful in detecting multiple shooters at once and shots fired at a higher elevation than the sensor itself.
While shots were fired, our team monitored the threat tracking information each sensor collected through our VMS. As each sensor localized the gunshots, the VMS showed us a view of the gunshot location from each camera’s perspective. We received text alerts featuring an image and description of the test shooter. These alerts are triggered by our VMS as soon as a threat is detected. As our test shooter continued to move through the testing site firing shots, the VMS continued to display the updated locations as detected by the sensors.
