OnSound Portable Acoustic Gunshot Detection

A portable, acoustic gunshot detection device for highly accurate and cost-effective outdoor gunshot detection.

OnSound Portable Acoustic Gunshot Detection

The OnSound Portable Acoustic Gunshot Detection is the world’s first wireless, portable acoustic gunshot locator device. By continuously monitoring ambient environmental audio, the sensor is able to both detect and localize the source of gunfire using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and provide real-time location information for each gunshot event. It’s built upon an AI methodology utilizing neural networks, which are computational models based on the human brain, allowing units to recognize when a gunshot has occurred. This enables the system to learn what a gunshot sounds like, in much the same way a human learns to recognize and classify sounds, allowing the system to detect a much broader range of gunshots without relying on a human-specified model or set of heuristics.

When multiple units are deployed, they can share data and work together to triangulate the source of one or more gunshots, determining precise locations and sending real-time audio alerts via email and/or text to authorized first responders and security personnel. The detection range of one unit, in its default configuration and accuracy level, is approximately 300-1000 feet, depending heavily on the environment in which the unit is placed. Flat, rural, temperate environments provide the longest detection range and urban, hot, heavily obstructed environments provide the shortest.

All OnSound Gunshot Detection devices include a proprietary battery and power management system and can be powered via bullet-resistant V5 Solar Panels, AC power or a combination of both. The solution is packaged in a ruggedized enclosure for easy deployment and re-deployment in any outdoor environment.
