Gunshot Detection And Location System.

Tenders Are Invited For Gunshot Detection And Location System


The New York City Police Department ( nypd ) Is Seeking To Enter Into A Contract For A Gunshot Detection And Location System ( system ). The Proposed System Would Use Specially Placed Microphones To Pinpoint, In Seconds, The Precise Location Of Gunfire Within Coverage Areas. The Overall Goal Of The System Is To Reduce Indiscriminate Gunfire, Reduce Gunshot-related Injuries And Deaths, And To Increase Recovery Of Ballistic Evidence, Perpetrator Arrests And Successful Prosecutions Associated With Illegal Gun-related Activities. The Nypd Has Previously Entered Into A Demonstration Project Contract To Evaluate The Reliability And Feasibility Of Utilizing Gunshot Detection Technology In New York City. This Demonstration Project Has Been A Success, And The Nypd Is Now Proceeding With A New Contract To Provide For Such A System In Broader Areas Of The City For A Longer Term.

Specifically, The Nypd Is Looking For A Robust Gunshot Detection System Model That Uses A Network Of Sensors Affixed To Rooftops And Other High Points To Detect Subsonic And Supersonic Impulses Generated By Gun Fire Within A Large Outdoor Area. The System Should Use Multiple, Collaborating Sensors That Will Allow The System To Geo-locate The Exact Location From Which A Shot Was Fired (both Latitude/longitude And Street Address). The System Should Also Have Audio Analysis Software That Identifies The Gunshots. The Selected Vendor Also Needs To Be Able To Provide A Team Of Acoustic Experts, Stationed At A Round-the-clock Adjudication Center, To Listen To The Sounds That Prompted Each Alert And To Communicate Directly With The Nypd In Real-time. The Nypd Believes That Adding Human Judgment To The Process Drastically Reduces The Number Of False Positives. The Gunshot Detection And Location System Must Also Be Able To Detect The Number Of Shots Fired And The Position, Speed, And Direction Of Travel If The Shooter Is Moving, And Provide A Digital Record Of The Shooting For Investigative Or Evidentiary Use.

At This Point, The Nypd Knows Of Only One Vendor That Offers A Gunshot Detection And Location System That Has All Of The Features Which It Is Seeking. This Vendor Is Shotspotter, Inc., Located At 7979 Gateway Blvd., Suite 210, Newark, Ca 94560. Thus, The Nypd Intends To Negotiate With Shotspotter, Inc. And Any Other Vendors That Express An Interest In This Solicitation For The Provision Of The Required Gunshot Detection And Location System For The Nypd.
