The developer of a gun detection solution, ZeroEyes, has revealed a new subsidiary named ZE Government Solutions (ZEGS) that will launch later in 2023.
According to ZeroEyes, ZEGS will be focused on developing and supplying the US federal government with machine learning solutions that aim to improve security by providing proactive detection and situational awareness of complex threats.
ZEGS’ solutions will be based on ZeroEyes’ proactive AI software, which layers over existing digital security cameras to identify threats and alert on-prem security personnel.
“We are excited to formally announce ZEGS and look forward to ongoing work with the US Department of Defense (DoD) and other federal agencies,” said JT Wilkins, Senior Vice President of Sales, ZeroEyes. “This will allow us to leverage core ZeroEyes technology in applications unique to the federal government.”
According to the company, it has been delivering computer vision capability to the DoD since 2020, when the company was awarded an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with the Chief Digital and Artificial Intelligence Office (CDAO) to build weapons recognition software for base force protection platforms.
Subsequently, the company has been awarded multiple Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase 1 and 2 contracts, Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) contracts and Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs) focused on layering computer vision capability into small drones, robotics platforms and other government platforms.
“ZEGS will be a natural progression of ZeroEyes‘ federal business and we are excited to continue building relevant and proactive capabilities for our federal customers,” said Kieran Carroll, Chief Strategy Officer, ZeroEyes. “ZEGS will also employ a robust federal government affairs effort aimed at educating federal policymakers on emerging defense technology and capabilities.”
ZeroEyes has seen many successes with its AI-based gun detection analytics platform and this new deal with US federal government is an indicator of its continued presperity.
Ensuring that gun shots are detected as quickly as possible can help security teams to identify where the perpetrator is located and prevent further damage, injury or death. Automating this process with AI is crucial, as it minimizes the risk of human error missing or wrongly locating the event.
