Comprehensive Gunshot Detection for Indoor, Outdoor and Vertical Shooters
Founded in 2006, Databuoy® is named after our early work with the US Navy. The nautical term, Data Buoys, refers to a network of sensors moored in the ocean which support passing ships. Our sensor networks are land-based, but are similarly “moored” to reliably persist, detect, and serve passers-by.
Our technology is founded on a series of research and development programs sponsored by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), for the Army and Navy.
In 2013, Databuoy turned its focus to public safety. Our first indoor live-fire test at a school was conducted in 2014. Indoor and outdoor range testing and system refinement continued for years. The system has been used in real-world environments for several years, providing responders with valuable information to quickly direct them to life-safety incidents and support subsequent investigations.
An expansive acoustic library has been collected on our unique sensor hardware with tens of thousands of rounds fired and millions of hours of sensor operations. Building on the robust effectiveness and accuracy of our Shotpoint® gunshot localization technology, Databuoy released the Geofob™ panic button in 2021, to expand the security capabilities of our sensor networks. Databuoy continues to actively develop cutting-edge technology products, to add bold new functionality to our cohesive security suite.
Databuoy is a member of the IIFX Xperience Consortium, a worldwide industry technology ecosystem and think tank and consultancy focused on innovation in the sports & entertainment industry.
