Shooter Detection Systems (SDS) announced today that after extensive testing of the Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System, the product has been granted approval by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), the UK Government Authority for protective security advice to the country’s national infrastructure.
In a process that took one year from product discovery through testing and approval, the Guardian System achieved a 100% detection rate and a 0% false alert rate in trials against the CPNI Indoor Gunshot Detection Standard. This prestigious honor grants the Guardian System “Approved for UK Government Use”, a designation reserved for an exclusive list of products rigorously tested by the government authority for resiliency and efficacy against threats to critical national infrastructure.
The CPNI honor is exclusive to Shooter Detection System’s Guardian product and represents the first and only indoor gunshot detection system to be awarded such a designation. Together with the Guardian’s DHS SAFETY Act Certification, the Company’s global technology and integrator partnerships, and the thousands of Guardian sensors operating at customer sites, CPNI approval further validates the Guardian System’s position as the security industry’s top choice for indoor gunshot detection.
“When seconds mean the difference between life and death, no customer can afford to settle for anything less than perfection when choosing a gunshot detection system,” said Christian Connors, Chief Executive Officer of SDS. “We’ve been on the leading edge of gunshot detection since its inception in the early 1990’s and we’re proud to continue to set the highest industry standards for performance in the gunshot detection market,” said Connors.
CPNI is the UK Government authority for protective security advice to the UK national infrastructure, accountable to the Director of Security Service MI5. The authority works with partners in government, police, industry, and academia to identify risks to and reduce the vulnerability of the national infrastructure. Given the expansion of terror targets in recent years to include other nationally important assets or events, the authority also offers its advice to sports venues and other iconic high-profile targets. In keeping with national security measures, test results are classified and available exclusively through CPNI.
