Active Shooter Response Technology (ASRT)

Oct. 26, 2019

BodyWorn by Utility, Inc.'s Active Shooter Response Technology (ASRT). When installed in schools, businesses, stores, and other locations, ASRT provides real-time detection and location reporting of gunshots to reduce response time to active shooter events. For the first time, Utility's new ASRT sensor technology enables Police Officers to immediately respond to gunshots the moment they occur, knowing the exact location where the gunshot occurred.

Active Shooter Response Technology is part of BodyWorn's cloud-based ecosystem, AVaiLWeb™. Once a gunshot is detected, a real-time alert with geographical location including Classroom number or Hallway ID is wirelessly sent to Central Dispatch, the nearest responding Police Officers, Command Staff, school and business Administrators, and other designated personnel.

Never been done before, ASRT intelligent sensors can accurately distinguish gunshots from other loud noises, and provide a room number where the gunshot occurred. Responding Police Officers have accurate and timely active shooter Situational Awareness information that increases Officer safety and can save Citizen lives.

"Utility has had a longstanding relationship with the city of Lawrence, Indiana, and this excellent partnership is now being extended to the Metropolitan School District of Lawrence Township and its community at no cost. Utility's goal is to expedite the adoption of this transformative technology by working closely with the stakeholders that have the most to gain and to protect," said Ted Davis, Chief Executive Officer, Utility, Inc.

"Utility's BodyWorn technology was a game-changer in law enforcement when we implemented it three years ago. I am most pleased with the enhanced officer safety benefits and the revolutionary nature of the software that drives the platform," said Chief David Hofmann from Lawrence, Indiana. "Very soon, a remarkable and new aspect of our body-worn solution will be launched -- an innovative gunshot identification and emergency notification system that has never before been seen. This system will guide police officers directly towards a deadly threat, in real-time, in situations where our most vulnerable population is in extreme danger – an active shooter incident in a school. It will also guide the innocent away from the danger, improving their chance of survival. Utility is delivering technology that will inevitably prevent violence and save lives."

Both the BodyWorn camera and the RocketIoT, singularly or in conjunction, utilize their unique communication capabilities to activate specific recording triggers that automatically initiate video recording. These triggers are set by the Department's individual recording policies – including a built-in accelerometer, prone positioning, light bar sensors in concert with door opening, rapid motion, GeoFence entry, etc. – and can be updated at any time via their video management system, AVaiLWeb. The BodyWorn camera and the RocketIoT system offer unique integration with real-time GPS reporting of officer and vehicle, auto-related video for synchronized video playback, dockless evidence offload and more.
