Gunshot Detection and Biometrics Merge to Form Real-Time Shooter I.D.
Thursday, November 22, 2012
Amidst the recent revelations regarding the use of facial recognition software by police in San Diego as well as its use by department stores via mannequins equipped with cameras and microphones, it appears that yet another facial recognition technology is being rolled out. This new introduction of yet another method by which to develop and utilize a massive database of American biometrics, like all the other programs, represents the further shredding of privacy rights as well as the fourth amendment.
The new program being referred to is the product of the partnership between two military industrial complex firms – Safety Dynamics and Airborne Biometrics Group (ABI). Both of these firms are thinly veiled creatures of the stampeding DARPA-style surveillance state and shadow government infrastructure now firmly in place the world over.
Essentially, the new programs being prepared for implementation all over the country are designed to detect gun shots from a remote location via acoustic sensors. When the gunshots are detected and located through a quick process of triangulation, a high-resolution camera is then used to photograph the shooter’s face, which is then processed through a biometric database to determine the person’s identity. If the shooter is not yet enrolled in the police state database, the new technology can actually create a new record using the photograph.
