PATSCAN TMS offers an effective method for covert threat detection of concealed weapons using machine learning coupled with targeted magnetic signature identification.
PATSCAN VRS unlocks the power of your current camera infrastructure to automate the detection of weapons, disturbances and suspicious behaviours.
PATSCAN STS rapidly screen extremely complex samples and identify the concentration of chemicals through the use of tunable electronic signals.
In recent history, we have seen and experienced an increase in acts of international and domestic terrorism, with increasing numbers of domestic Active Shooter incidents. As a result, the PATSCAN suite of security products was created by Patriot One Technologies and a respected university lead research team. This created the basis of identifying concealed weapons. The technology’s covert design can be placed in entry ways, hallways and other primary locations. It uses radio wave emissions that discreetly target, identify and notify of a potential concealed weapon threat.
The term “active shooter” is used by federal agencies to describe “an individual or individuals actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated space.” In 2014 the Federal Bureau of Investigation began studying “active shooter” incidents to provide law enforcement with data so they can better understand how to prevent, prepare for and recover from these incidents. Their studies show that between 2000 to 2013, the average number of incidents rose from 6.4 a year to 16.4 a year. Their study has since been updated to include incidents until 2018. From 2000 to 2018, the FBI has counted 277 active shooter incidents, in which 2017 had the most. That year saw 30 incidents that resulted in 729 people being killed or wounded. Many of these casualties came from the October 2017 shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada at a musical festival. The lack of availability of effective technology to prevent these situations is one of the main reasons for the increase of these events. Without this technology, law enforcement agencies can only react to information as it becomes available.
