DataSoft Receives Purchase Order that will Supply Montgomery County Virginia Sheriff with Automatic Injury Detection System
Tempe, Arizona – April 4, 2016 – DataSoft is proud to announce with partner company, Select Engineering Services, that they have received an order to supply the Montgomery County Virginia Sheriff’s department with the life-saving Automatic Injury Detection (AID) system. Deputies will soon be wearing the state-of-the-art sensors that automatically send out an emergency alert when the AID panel has been shot or stabbed.
The AID system is based on a thin film panel with a conductive ink trace that can be inserted into the body armor, in front of the ballistic material. The panels are worn on the front and back of the user to detect any piercing event (e.g. bullet, knife or shrapnel) and automatically send a call/message for help over a radio or phone. The location of the injury from the panel and GPS location are included with the emergency alert so that back-up personnel and/or a medical team can assist as soon as possible.
Montgomery County Sheriff Hank Partin expressed the dedication he has to the safety of every one of his deputies through the purchase and implementation of the AID system. Sheriff Partin requested that the AID emergency notification be sent over their portable radio network to the dispatcher and also through the user’s phone to other members in the department. DataSoft will update the AID communication design to meet the dual-communication requirement in time for product delivery this summer.
