Overview

Born from the military

Crime Gun Intelligence Technologies (CGIT) was established in 2019 to provide law enforcement with the next generation of transportable gunshot geolocation technology in support of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Crime Gun Intelligence Center initiative. This advanced technology was designed with the intent to provide law enforcement with a tool to address gun violence.

CGIT believes that some of the most needed and useful tools are those which support evidence/intelligence-led policing for crimes involving the use of firearms as these crimes have high risk resulting in serious physical injury and death.

Much of the technology for CGIT’s gunshot detection system can be traced to the development of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) hostile-fire detection system known as Project FireFLY. This proprietary technology was developed jointly by Invariant Corporation of Huntsville, Alabama, and Hyperion Technology Group of Tupelo, Mississippi.

The Project FireFLY hostile-fire detection program was established to support forces in Afghanistan. The system has the capabilities of detecting and reporting locations of small arms fire that directly threaten U.S. personnel. Over time, the Project FireFLY system evolved to integrate with numerous other surveillance platforms to enhance overseas force protection missions.

Project FireFLY was designed to perform under the harshest of conditions. It has been tested and proven on the battlefield and relied upon by our Military.
CGIT, a DoD FireFLY platform, is a TRUSTED technology.
