Our technology saves lives. And we’ve been here since the beginning.

In 1995 a research arm of the DoD called the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) sponsored the development of prototype systems that paired acoustic muzzle blast and ballistic shock wave signatures to accurately predict the location of gunfire events and associated shooter locations. It wasn’t until the Iraq War in 2003 that the need for these systems became critical to detect sniper fire aimed at U.S. troops in battle.
