Movie Theater Sensor Maker Rides Wave Of Colorado Killing Fears
Fear raised by Colorado killings pushed tiny "think tank" into world wide spotlight for a sensor development. New Technology approach to sensing bullet primer chemical signature instead of trying to identify weapons makes this sensor "special"
ARAB SHEIK’S MATCHING FUNDS OFFER WOULD BRING SENSOR TO MARKET
Movie Theaters, Banks, Stadiums Most Likely Targets for New Security Device
ORLANDO…July 30… A bullet sensor called the “Sniffer” developed by a Florida “Think Tank’ and Virginia’s DKLABS that would alert on the presence of bullets at movie theaters would go into production immediately if they can match an Arab Sheik’s funding offer. $1,000,000 for marketing was offered from Jeddah (UAE) for the newly announced, “WeaponDetect”
“We have the next generation of security technology in hand and were expecting several years of limited budget production” explained the firm’s Director of Development Rory Smith. “With the Internet, the details of the “Sniffer” technology and its link to the Colorado movie theater incident have been all over the world in just a few days, creating interest among “Angel” investors and those in industries where large numbers of people who could be targets of an unfortunate event gather.” Smith said. “Such incidents as the one in Colorado take place all over the world making the sensor an important new security tool.”
No pipe dream, the “Sniffer” technology represents a “next generation” of sensors, reacting to the electrical field generated by the bullet’s primer or powder charge. Unlike metal detectors which can be “tricked” by guns made from plastic or composite materials not to signal an alert, even if the bullets are not loaded in the weapon they will activate the “Weapondetect”
While many retail establishments have detectors in plain sight as a deterrent to limit shoplifting, stadiums, banks, theaters, and other locations that attract large crowds do not. “The small size of the “Weapondetect”
