AI GUN DETECTION

Military Inspired AI Technology

Data-centric AI delivers improved accuracy and sub-second detection of potential active shooter gun threats
OUR TECHNOLOGY

Data-Centric AI

Our expertise in AI has roots in the U.S. Department of Defense and DARPA related to real-time target recognition and threat classification. That military focus on high reliability and precision carried through to development of our gun detector AI that goes beyond identifying guns to finding active shooter threats.

We employ a data-centric AI methodology that prioritizes high-quality training data. While traditional methods focus on data volume, sourcing millions of gun images, we take a quality over quantity approach. Our training data is hand curated with rich annotations that improve accuracy and increase reliability.

POWERFUL AI SOFTWARE

How Our AI Detects Gun Threats

Omnilert AI Gun Detect software uses a multi-dimensional process to identify active shooter gun threats, not simply guns.

01

ASSESS

It first assesses frames of video to identify a body – a torso, arms, legs, etc. It’s not looking for people or trying to identify a person, just the shape of a body without reference to color, gender or other identifying personal attributes.
02

DETECT

The AI then works as a gun detector, searching for a handgun or long gun in close proximity to the body. A wide range of handguns, shotguns, rifles and military-style weapons are distinguished by the AI while inert objects such as cell phones, hand-tools, common office objects and more are identified to diminish possible false positives.
03

ANALYZE

Finally, through a proprietary process, multiple frames of video are analyzed in sequence to establish a coherent track on the threat, reducing spurious or false detections. Additionally, the relationship of the gun to the arm and hand of the body is analyzed to bring additional clarity to the situation and help determine, with a high level of confidence, if an actual gun detection is in fact an active shooter threat.
The culmination of these stages results in an active shooter detection in fractions of a second. Rich intelligence that increases situational awareness (photo, video snippet, camera name and location) is shared with the customer’s security operations center for verification or to Omnilert’s geographically redundant, five-diamond certified monitoring centers.
