Yardarm has developed wireless firearm technology for law enforcement, private security and the military. The Yardarm Sensor gives organizations a new level of awareness about what is happening with their officers’ firearms, by connecting them in realtime through the cloud. Commanders are enabled to make informed, split second decisions about events on the ground – decisions that can save lives, help officers in the field do their jobs better, and give crime scene analysis teams necessary information after the smoke has cleared.
The Sensor recognizes geo-location, movement, holstering and un-holstering, the discharge of a firearm, as well as direction of fire. These events are transmitted for visual display in real-time to Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), Real-Time Crime Center (RTCC), and edge devices such as smartphone, allowing command to better support officers in the field.
Anticipated pricing: $100 for firearm hardware and $10/month access fee to link the firearm to the cloud.
