The Tutelare Corporation

See Threats Before They Happen! With gun and knife violence on the rise around the world, Tutelare aims to meet the demand of weapon detection by using innovative and proprietary technologies.

Introduction

Terrorism, crime, and random acts of violence are most often committed with weapons that are concealed by the users until they are employed. The ability to detect these concealed weapons has been challenging, as weapons screening is typically conducted at access or entry control points. Limited or no access control screening, and the ability for bad actors to move unconstrained, provides for little deterrence against bringing concealed weapons to target locations.

In order to mitigate these risks, Tutelare has created a proprietary technology to expand and enhance law enforcement, military and public/private security’s ability to detect concealed weapons in a fixed or mobile environment.

Tutelare’s technology prioritizes and enhances safety, providing a new detection capability that can be used as a stand alone technology or as part of a larger layered defense to mitigate and remediate personnel risks at large venues, military bases, government buildings, malls, schools, places of worship, and businesses.

Problem

problem

Everytown Research reported that every day, more than 100 Americans are killed with guns and more than 230 are shot and wounded.

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that over the past 5 years, the average American gun deaths by intent is an astounding 38,826 per year.

Many people globally are concerned for their safety because of:

  • Increasing criminality rates
  • Riots and civil unrest almost on a daily basis
  • The increasing threat of foreign and domestic terrorist attacks
  • Violence occurring in malls, churches, theatres, and other public spaces
  • Attacks against US bases, facilities, and interests abroad

Current technologies have limited detection capabilities. These technologies are focused on the detection of firearms and knives, with severe limitations in their ability to differentiate between different types of electronic devices. As these technologies are employed at access and entry control points and have extremely limited effective scan ranges, they are ineffective at scanning crowds and have no ability to tag and track a threat once it has been identified.

“We expect police officers to do something that is very difficult and challenging without giving them the tools they need to do the job”
- Dawn Sweet, Assistant Professor, Communication Studies & Psychology, Iowa State University

Solution

solution

The Tutelare Corporation is developing a wide range of wearable/mobile and fixed weapons detections (WFWD) technologies to improve detection of potential threats outside, at access/entry control points and inside potential threat target locations.

Our technology can replace or integrate with existing traditional fixed-point body/equipment scanners, enhancing threat detection through a multi-sensor wide area coverage approach. The integrated and networked technology provides for centralized information collection, analysis, and dissemination ensuring all police/security forces receive accurate and current threat information.

Our operational mobile/wearable prototype is fully capable of detecting concealed weapons, displaying the threat through the eyeglasses of the technology wearer and onto the common operational picture of a command center. The unique nature of the wearable technology allows threat collectors to operate in and around potential targets with no abnormal signature, reducing the risk of being compromised by potential threats.

Detection Capabilities

  • Firearms, explosives, bladed weapons (metallic, non metallic, ceramic and composite).
  • Detection through layered clothing, purses, bags, and backpacks in any weather condition.
  • Remote body temperature scans to detect potential threats of infection.

WFWD Possible Features

  • Expanded multi threat detection capabilities and increased detection range. Deep learning technology (Artificial Intelligence) to enhance sensor fidelity and decision hierarchy.
  • Fixed, wearable and mobile detectors networked into a centralized operational environment.
  • Low power emissions (less than a mobile phone) for human safety.
  • A deterrence signal capable of disorienting the target and thereby permitting a reaction force to intercept the target or to keep the target from any unauthorized attempt to enter the protected area.
  • Differentiated risk levels indicated by colored highlighted outlines.
  • The ability to Identify, Locate, Tag, and Track a threat in a congested environment.

Business Model

Our goal is to become the top supplier of area coverage weapons detection technology worldwide. A brand that instills safety, protection, and confidence amongst the people.

We intend to initially target high profile, large events/areas with high security needs in order to establish our brand and reputation through the quality and effectiveness of our products.

Detection sensors offered on a small fee per ticket basis, bundled into the overall ticket price

In the United States, there are 250 venues with capacities greater than 18,000 persons.

  • Aggregating to a maximum of approximately 11.5 million people
  • Assuming there are 38 events per year at each such venue, over 439 million total people per year attend in these locations

We expect both our wearable device, on a standalone basis, and our multi-sensor systems (fixed in place and wearable) to garner attention from local and national security forces, both private sector and public sector, in addition to public infrastructure and other public and private buildings and event spaces.
