  • Weapons Detection System for Public Schools and more

    We have developed a low cost walk-through concealed weapons detection system that uses passive sensing, vice active sensing like the Ranger and Garret systems, to detect firearms and other contraband items. This system can be used as a stand-alone visible gateway or the entire installation can be made in a covert fashion due to the very small size of the control electronics and sensors. The system purchase price and operating cost is much lower than the above mentioned systems. This patented system is designed and manufactured in the USA.

    This system can be monitored and operated in stand-alone mode, or with an Android device such as a cell phone or tablet, or with a laptop computer or desktop PC, wired or via wireless communications. This system can be networked together so that multiple gateways can be monitored at a central location.

    Each gateway can be interfaced with a color digital video camera to acquire the image of the alarm condition offender. This image, along with that scan’s data, can be sent to all perimeter security personnel for ease in identification of the offender and to establish probable cause. The system automatically saves all scan data, alarm set point modifications, and changes of operational parameters onto a built-in memory device.

    We are currently performing market research and I would like to ask this security community if there is interest for such a system and more specifically, that if you are interested in this type of system, in what security arena would use this public safety device.

    The system means nothing without a reaction plan. Do you you have a link to this system or any trials of it being used?

      Agreed, though typically facilities adopt a reaction plan to fit their security needs, based on the security tools available to and used by them. Links to the system may be available at a later date.

        There are already numerous systems on the market that allow for the detection of weapons. The cost of the hardware is insignificant compared to the costs of manning such a system and in providing a security force that is capable of responding appropriately when a weapon is indeed detected. Most public schools and other large venues typically have multiple entrance points, all of which must be screened if the system is to be effective. Potential entrance points such as operable windows, loading dock doors, and emergency exit doors also need to be considered.

        Trying to monitor multiple entrance points remotely or from a single control point would be impractical in most cases. What will you do when a weapon is detected? Ask the bad guy to wait until security responds? Capturing an image of the person carrying the weapon and then tracking him down in the building after he has entered won't work either. How will you deal with the numerous false alerts that will inevitably occur? Having security staff at each entrance point is the only practical answer in almost all cases.

        There are very few property owners who would have the appetite or budget to provide this level of protection for their facilities, regardless of the type of equipment available. Again, the primary challenge is operational considerations, not the availability of some new type of detection system.

          My thoughts were.after detection, the attempt to challenge the individual could easily turn into an active shooter scenario. Most schools around here will have multiple access points, but only a few open from the outside.

          Rick im familiar with implementing response plans and what not. But silva does bring up a good point. I could see larger facilities or at least places with a good budget for their department implementing it. Please let me kbow when more info.os available, id like to see it in action.

              Rick,

              It sounds like the walk through metal detector you are creating and talking about is exactly what we need on the market today. How soon before it will be released? I am super interested in becoming a dealer/reseller as I have a lot of experience with walk through metal detectors.

                The new system has the potential to use microwave radar and electromagnetic pulses to detect weapons without the privacy concerns or cost of the full-body scanners currently used in some airports.
