360-Degree Cameras Readied as Powerful Training Solution Against Active Shooter Threats


FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- 360fly®,Inc., makers of ultra-rugged 360-degree camera solutions today announces a collaboration with Tomahawk Strategic Solutions, providers of training programs to better prepare organizations for evolving threats and emergency situations, to roll out a first-of-its-kind training package designed for active shooter situations. Utilizing 360fly 4K Pro cameras for training, this unique solution is designed to train and prepare schools, businesses, venues, law enforcement, the military and others on how to appropriately respond to an active shooter threat in their facility and minimize casualties.

360fly® and Tomahawk Strategic Solutions Create New Training Solution for Active Shooter Scenarios Using Advanced 360-degree 4K Camera Technology for Full Situational Awareness

"360fly is a Ft. Lauderdale company. Many of us have kids who went to, or currently go to, schools in the Parkland area. Because of the Parkland shooting, and seemingly endless news of active shooter situations around the country, we worked tirelessly with Tomahawk to make the development of this tactical training system our top priority," said Peter Aloumanis, president and CEO, 360fly. "Tomahawk's team has incredible tactical and real-world experience that lets us create a training solution that will allow the military, public safety, corporate America, and others, to utilize the vast benefits of 360-degree cameras for tactical training for active shooter situations."

Combining Tomahawk's hands-on tactical training with 4K 360-degree camera technology, this training system requires 360fly 4K Pro cameras, connected to battery packs, to be strategically placed on tripods in training areas prior to running an active shooter or tactical training scenario. Up to four cameras can be connected wirelessly to a high-speed Wi-Fi router, and their video feeds are streamed to a PC running 360fly's OVERWATCH software suite. The OVERWATCH PC software suite allows instructors to monitor up to four live, 360° streams simultaneously. The 360fly 4K Pro cameras connect wirelessly to th PC allowing the instructors freedom to move around the facility during training sessions.



This setup makes it possible for instructors to actively monitor, record and playback the events that take place in multiple danger areas during tactical training exercises. Following the conclusion of a training scenario, instructors can debrief using the footage captured in each danger area using the OVERWATCH software.

"One of the most critical components of our tactical training programs is the ability to debrief after every exercise," said Keith Walawender, CEO of Tomahawk Strategic Solutions. "Working with 360fly, we created a technical solution that utilizes its most advanced cameras and OVERWATCH video capture software that work together to record and virtually recreate training scenarios. This kit allows us to effectively place our instructors in the middle of teachable moments without them needing to be in the scenario. The ability to play back the scenario and show students the angles and critique points is invaluable. The 360-degree vantage point of each danger area gives our instructors eyes on everyone and everything that happened in each strategic zone of the training set up. This level of data allows us to thoroughly revisit the training activity that took place, assess tactical decisions from multiple angles, evaluate the use of force and de-escalation techniques, and more after every exercise."


Available through Tomahawk Strategic Solutions for a special introductory price of $4,000 (regularly $4,999), the active threat training kit consists of:

  • 2 - 360fly 4k Pro Cameras
  • 2 - Professional Tripods
  • 2- 24,000mAh Battery Packs 
  • Wi-Fi Router
  • Professional Grade Case 
  • 360fly's OVERWATCH PC Software Suite
