Regent Power to Showcase Gunshot
Localization Smart City Streetlight on
Monday, March 20th in St. Louis
St. Louis, MO March 15, 2017
Regent Power will be showcasing their Smart City Streetlight that features an integrated camera, wi-fi, and gunshot localization system called ShotPoint, developed by intelligent sensing technology provider, Databuoy Corporation.
The demonstration will occur at 3940 Industrial Drive, St. Ann, MO. This demonstration will be hosted by the St. Ann Police Department and will be on their grounds.
ShotPoint is an acoustic sensor network that incorporates strategically placed nodes that located indoors or outdoors. The system will automatically identify and locate the source of gunfire and, when integrated with video systems, it will cue cameras to the exact time and location of a shot. ShotPoint immediately communicates the gunshot data in a variety of formats, such as a simple message, or referenced to maps and floor plans. This incident-specific data is transmitted to onsite security personnel or local first responders in seconds. Proactive and precise action can then be taken to save lives in a shooting event. The data generated by ShotPoint also allows responders to secure an often-chaotic incident scene for Emergency Medical Services to administer lifesaving care.
According to Databuoy President, Kathleen Griggs, “ShotPoint is among the systems that will change the nature of institutional public safety and represents a class of embedded IoT (Internet of Things) devices that transmits event-driven notifications. Public safety applications will benefit by a connected network that rapidly responds to emergency notifications sensed by systems like ShotPoint. Responders need immediate situational awareness and this is what ShotPoint delivers- it connects responders to the real data that they need when they need it.”
“Databuoy, used in conjunction with an integrated Smart City streetlight infrastructure, brings the ultimate safety, illumination, and communication to cities and municipalities, especially in high-risk and security sensitive areas,” says Laura Jones, CEO of Regent Power. “Citizens, businesses and emergency services all benefit together. We are delighted to showcase this integrated system to our city officials.”
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has granted Safety Act Designation Protections for Databuoy’s ShotPoint shooter localization system.
Databuoy began in 2006 as a defense contractor focused on embedded systems command and control technologies and has recently realigned to focus on public safety in the private sector.
With deep roots in the defense research industry and the military, Databuoy Corporation started off as a defense contracting company. It now focuses on public safety in the private sector. Its ShotPoint gunshot localization system is a breakthrough technology that can vastly improve the response of emergency services to an active shooter event over current practice in the security industry. ShotPoint uses networked acoustic sensors that automatically detect, locate, and reports the exact time and location of the source of gunfire. For more information:
