How does it work?

A gunshot is fired

The acoustic fingerprint is detected on sensors

The detection is forwarded to backend

Location and gunshot information is distributed

If you can hear the sound of a gunshot Triangula will detect and position it. Triangula uses advanced artificial intelligence (AI) to position gunshot, identify weapon and find gunshot direction

Operating modes

Fixed sensors

Fixed installations for permanent surveillance of high-risk objects or critical areas. The sensors are mounted in discrete housings and connected to external power.

Robust coverage

Deployed sensors

Temporary surveillance under an operation. The sensors are deployed in the environment running on own battery power.

Quick setup

Roaming sensors

Mobile surveillance under an operation or as an expansion of a fixed installation. Roaming sensors on personnel provides continuous gunshot positioning around a team.

Flexible solution

Select, change or mix operating modes according to needs
