PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — ZeroEyes, Inc. is pleased to announce that the company has secured a one-year contract to install its proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) based weapons detection solution, DeepZero™, at Tyndall Air Force Base outside of Panama City, Florida, with the option to extend the contract for an additional two years. ZeroEyes’ software was chosen after the company participated in the AFWERX Security Flightline of the Future challenge, which showcases technology and services to create an integrated flightline while maintaining security, resilience and agility. Tyndall Air Force will be the military’s first base to take advantage of advanced analytics to proactively mitigate active shootings onsite.

Major Jordan Criss, Commander of the 325th Security Forces Squadron at the base, noted, “ZeroEyes is a welcomed force multiplier that will be a tremendous enhancement for our defenders. This system will increase the situational awareness for our response forces through advanced threat detection analytics and automated threat alerting providing both a rapid and accurate response. During an active shooter situation time is critical and saving time means saving lives.”

“In today’s fast-paced and ever-changing security landscape it is critical for our military to have the most advanced technology available to protect our defenders both globally and domestically,” said Mike Lahiff, CEO of ZeroEyes. “We’re excited for the opportunity to work with the men and women at Tyndall Air Force Base to add a layer of security to its operations.”
