WiFi is everywhere. From your favourite coffee shop to your home, this ubiquitous technology connects everyone. One Canadian company, First Responder Technologies Inc., has figured out a way to use these mass deployed networks to give law enforcement and security teams a way to get ahead of bad actors. In a climate where we are increasingly fearful, this technology cannot be deployed soon enough.
Founded by an ex-member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Kal Malhi, the company develops technologies that give law enforcement and security teams the right information, in advance, so they can take the best course of action quickly. This information allows authorities to safely prevent and defuse threats related to concealed weapons, without harm to the general public. Their technology, which was developed in partnership with Rutgers University, uses widely available commercial WiFi networks, to identify only the bad actors with weapons.
To help us understand how this technology works, and how it is applied, Robert Delamar, CEO of First Responder Technologies Inc., sits down with Mike Agerbo, for an in-depth interview.
The technology that Robert and his team are developing will change and save lives. It will ensure that members of law enforcement make it home every night and help to give the general public a better sense of safety. We certainly hope that they succeed, and will be following their developments closely.
