How it Works

SenseShot® Indoors Gunshot Detection - How it works.
(SenseShot&tradel; Indoors )

1 Digital Microphone Arrays- Utilize high sound pressure level MEMS microphones that provide low noise and interference, and digital (PDM) streaming measurements to the DSP detector.

2 Distributed Architecture - Each node contains its own two channels, low power DSP and communications computer that provides automated gunshot detection and data transfer (wired/wireless) to the base station.

3 Base Station Software- Receives and processes acoustic event signatures/attributes from sensor nodes or arrays, performs false alarm rejection, and estimates shooter location and/or projectile trajectory.

4 Gunshot Event Notifications- Provides software and hardware interfaces to integrate real-time updates with other sensor systems and also serves web-based UI control.

License and Warranty

SenseShot® Warranty
Each SenseShot® system includes the required firmware and detection software pre-installed at no additional charge. SenseShot® is covered by a software and hardware warranty for two years after the date of purchase. This system is not certified as a life-saving or life protection device and thus detection accuracy during a crisis event is not guaranteed. Each new hardware purchase includes two years of firmware and software updates with complimentary phone technical support. New site activations include on-site training and installation support provided by ISTI's field engineering team.

By purchasing a SenseShot® Gunshot Detection System, you will own the sensors for your application, and have a license to use the web console for viewing, monitoring and managing the gunshot events occurring in the area covered by your sensors.

Should you require more sensors to improve your coverage area, additional units can easily be added and synced with your existing network.

Similarly, scaling down on the number of sensors in your network can easily be accomplished.

SenseShot® Buy-Back Plan

We do not rent out the sensor hardware to clients, they get to own it. Thus, Year 1 costs will be higher than subsequent years, however, we do have a hardware Buy-Back program, where we take back the old sensors and offset the cost against a newer sensor purchase, should the sensor hardware specifications greatly vary in performance throughout the course of your subscription.

The First Turn-Key Gunshot Detection System

Built By A World Leader in GSD Technology

Information System Technologies Inc. (ISTI) has developed this patented technology as part of its ongoing work for the US Army force protection program as well as industrial applications.
ISTI's novel solutions using distributed sensors for surveillance, situational awareness, homeland security and border monitoring, has led to the filing of US patents supporting it's products.
