WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, OHIO – A recently signed Air Force Research Laboratory patent licensing agreement is set to commercialize an active shooter alert system developed by the Air Force.
The AFRL Sensors Directorate signed a patent license agreement with the newly incorporated Protective Innovations. The company, soon to be headquartered in Washington D.C., was founded by Chris Perrine, a former Air Force captain. Perrine was part of the team that developed the Active Shooter Protection System during the 2015 Air Force Research Laboratory Commander’s Challenge.
The ASPS was developed with simplicity in mind and is described as a fire alarm for active shooters. It detects the sound of a gunshot using advanced digital signal processing and artificial intelligence to differentiate from other loud noises. When a gunshot is detected, the system sounds an alarm and transmits the exact location of the emergency to police and fire dispatch.
