The World Leader in Active Shooter Detection

Experts have stated that in most active shooter incidents, the time required for security teams and law enforcement officials to respond is what can make the difference between life and death. Shooter Detection Systems (SDS) was formed to help mitigate these risks by providing the most advanced active shooter detection and alerting technology available. For over two decades, extensive development based upon customer feedback has been infused into the core technology behind our products. With over 12,000 gunshot detection systems in use, we are proud to be considered the market leader of a product line that has had a life-saving impact on our customers. That is the inspiration behind our products.

Protecting Critical Infrastructure

The Boomerang Outdoor Shooter Detection System combines state-of-the-art shooter detection technology with an advanced situational awareness system that reports hostile shooter activity in under a second. Developed from the world’s foremost acoustic scientists, Boomerang has been deployed worldwide since 2003 protecting U.S. military forces from sniper attack. SDS now offers Boomerang Spectrum, specifically designed to protect critical infrastructure from shooter-based threats. Boomerang Spectrum is installed and in use at some of the largest power and energy utilities across the nation and is an ideal solution for critical asset protection against rising shooter-based threats, allowing for a rapid, informed, and coordinated response.

Protecting the Public

The Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System, derived from Boomerang’s core technology and developed in conjunction with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), is the only stand-alone, dual-authentication, smart sensor for indoor active shooter events. With Guardian sensors installed throughout school, corporate, government and commercial buildings, critical information is immediately relayed to building occupants—as well as emergency personnel outside—so that the proper steps can be taken to quickly control the situation. By removing the “human factor”, nothing is left to interpretation and life-threatening delays can be avoided.

Meaningful Partnerships

Our expanding network of technology integration and integration partners includes some of the finest from around the world. Our commitment and passion for safety has led SDS to become the gunshot detection solutions provider of choice, dedicated to superior products and satisfied customers across the globe.
