World Leader in Gunshot Detection



Hosted Service Solution

In the past, only large, well-funded agencies could afford to purchase gunfire alert and analysis systems on the scale required for effective deployment. With the advent of fast, secure network communications suitable for mission-critical public safety and security operations, SST is now able to offer comprehensive gunfire alert and analysis as a hosted, cloud-based service to public safety and security agencies of all sizes.

With a hosted services solution, SST deploys an array of multiple collaborative acoustic sensors throughout a coverage area. When a loud explosive noise triggers the sensors, they instantly send detailed data to the SST Operations Center for audio data analysis and alert qualification. Within seconds, the SST Operations Center sends qualified alerts directly to a dispatch center, PSAP, patrol officers or other agencies for an effective, coordinated response.

Since all servers and software used to process, store and protect data are managed and maintained by SST, agencies no longer need to purchase software or licenses. Rather, agencies can subscribe to the hosted service on an annual basis, radically streamlining the cost and complexity of using gunfire alert and analysis to enhance awareness, response and community safety.
