Evolv Technology Launches First Free-Flow Weapons-Detection System Designed to Stop Active Shooters and Other Threats
Express is the fastest weapons-screening system on the market, consistently screening 60 people every minute for firearms and other threats.
Express is the fastest weapons-screening system on the market, consistently screening 60 people every minute for firearms and other threats. That’s 3,600 people per hour – 10X faster than a traditional checkpoint system. Express is designed to address the active shooter epidemic by detecting potential shooters before they enter a venue, without slowing the flow of visitors. Applications for Express include addressing workplace gun violence and school shootings, protecting iconic landmarks and keeping sports and entertainment venues safe. Venue managers no longer must choose between effective security and positive visitor experience.
“We live in an era of viral violence which has created a mass vulnerability problem. There is a clear need for a better way to deter or detect firearms and other threats before they enter a safe space, all while maintaining a positive experience for visitors and employees. Since the vast majority of visitors pose no threat, how do you allow them to walk right through while simultaneously identifying and separating those few individuals who may require a closer look?” stated Mike Ellenbogen, Chief Executive Officer, Evolv Technology. “We’re dedicated to solving the protection paradox. Today’s facilities need a solution that can quickly identify a threat but still welcome the crowds. We’re proud to have developed the first weapons-detection system capable of preventing the mass slaughter of innocent people without subjecting visitors to the traditional prison-like security experience.”
Using a new patented method of threat detection, Evolv’s Cortex AI™ software platform can instantly detect and identify a person carrying a weapon without slowing the flow of visitors who are carrying their personal items and bags. By fusing the latest high-speed sensors and Cortex AI, Express is the only weapons-detection system to deliver:
Evolv is being used by iconic venues worldwide to screen people for threats in a free-flow operation. Express debuted at the Global Security Exchange (GSX) Conference in September, enabling security teams to experience the system live in action for themselves:
Evolv reduces the burden on security teams and takes the hassle out of people screening. Contact us to Experience Evolv.
