ShotSpotter, a provider of gunshot detection and location analysis technology, has partnered with Data911 Systems to deliver real-time, wide-area acoustic surveillance and gunfire location alert and analysis services to Data911 mobile in-car mobile police systems.

The partnership ensures that ShotSpotter gunshot location alert and analysis solution is interoperable with Data911's mobile computing system to deliver a public safety solution that is fully compatible with approved industry standards, company officials said.

Data911 Systems develops, designs and manufactures rugged in-car computer and digital video systems specifically for the public safety sector. These products help create vehicle area network consisting of: in-car, airbag compliant mobile computer systems; in-car cameras with live-streaming video; low-cost license plate recognition; and a cloud-hosted vehicle location service with navigation.

Alerts of crimes-in-progress involving gunfire detected by the ShotSpotter solution will be delivered in real-time to patrol officers in the field directly to Data911 mobile computer systems. The alerts give instant review and assessment of gunshot incidents by highly trained gunshot and acoustic experts and delivered instantly to 9-1-1 call-takers, dispatchers and patrol officers.

"We're pleased to partner with Data911 to make real-time incident alert data available via their in-car mobile computing systems," said Ralph A. Clark, president and CEO of ShotSpotter, in a statement. "The availability of incident data quickly serves as a critical resource for patrol officers, and provides them with the actionable intelligence needed to more precisely respond to illegal gunfire and reduce gun violence in the communities they protect."

The interoperability will provide ShotSpotter's advanced capabilities and features to be available remotely, ensuring that patrol officers respond faster, safer and more accurately to gunfire incidents.

"The reliability and efficiency built into our mobile computers provide a perfect backbone for ShotSpotter's high-speed data requirements," said Bret Hubbard, president of Data911, in a statement. "We too are very pleased to work in partnership with ShotSpotter to leverage the features of our respective technologies to benefit not only the safety and security of the street officer, but to be able to do so while capturing this type of unique intelligence."
