ShotSpotter. Detect and locate gunfire in your urban area – now with video integration. Ay yi yi!
ShotSpotter’s gunshot location technology is based on acoustic detection of muzzle blast and, depending on the circumstances, the sound of the projectile while it travels. Unlike optical (muzzle flash) detection techniques, acoustic techniques do not require the shooter to be located in the field of view of a sensor. An acoustic system can cover a much larger area than an optical system and is thus most appropriate for covering large areas.
