PHILADELPHIA and SALT LAKE CITY – ZeroEyes will continue to expand its partnership with Utah-based safety solutions provider AEGIX Global courtesy of a $3 million contract to distribute its AI-based gun detection platform to Utah schools.

In May, Security Systems News reported on the cooperation between ZeroEyes and AEGIX Global to integrate their platforms to create a sole solution that was uniquely built for Utah public schools. Now the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) has granted AEGIX this contract to distribute ZeroEyes’ AI gun detection and intelligent situational awareness platform to Utah schools. As the sole authorized reseller in the state, AEGIX said the board will present the ZeroEyes platform to all Utah school districts for consideration. Interested districts will acquire the software from AEGIX, who will coordinate with ZeroEyes to provide full onboarding, training, installation, and support.

"ZeroEyes transforms everyday digital security cameras into proactive defense against active shooters, detecting guns the instant they are brandished so that schools and first responders are alerted before the first shot is fired," said Chet Linton, CEO of AEGIX. "We applaud Utah’s increased focus on school safety and security measures, and are proud to present ZeroEyes as part of a Comprehensive Incident Response Framework to help protect students and faculty across the state.”

As with other recent deployments, ZeroEyes platform will be layered on top of schools existing digital security camera systems. When an illegally brandished gun is recognized, images are instantly shared with the ZeroEyes Operations Center (ZOC), staffed 24/7/365 by specially trained U.S. military and law enforcement veterans. Those experts then determine the veracity of the threat and, if valid, will dispatch alerts and actionable intelligence to local law enforcement and staff.

"We have developed a strong partnership with AEGIX because we share the same passion for protecting children," said Mike Lahiff, CEO and co-founder of ZeroEyes. “We congratulate them on this important win and look forward to helping protect all Utah schools against gun-related violence.”
