The patented AID System consists of two sensors (front & back) that are inserted into the wearer’s bulletproof vest. The sensor is a flexible polyester panel with a conductive ink circuit printed on it. A communications module is mounted to each sensor. When the AID sensor is pierced by either a bullet, knife, or shrapnel the communications module will detect the break in the circuit and send out a call for help.
The AID sends the automated emergency alert through a smartphone, radio, or other communication systems. The automated and instant emergency alert helps save lives. Once hit, an officer or warfighter often needs to fight, flee, or becomes incapacitated such that they are unable to get help immediately. AID improves the ability and speed at which they can get medical attention and/or backup help in the fight against the attacker.
AID is worn in the front and back of the body armor vest. Any piercing event - from a bullet, knife, shrapnel - will be immediately and reliably detected.
AID automatically makes a call for help to many pre-defined recipients at the same time with precise personnel information, injury zone and location so that the injured person can get help as soon as possible even if they are incapacitated. It also helps the agency eliminate the threat in the fastest possible way.
AID sensors are very lightweight, rugged and waterproof. The rechargeable battery lasts one year on a charge. Once the user/department connect the sensors, there is little to no maintenance or attention required. Plus, AID will last for the life of the vest.
