Some of the nightclubs in Orlando are looking for the implementation of radar-based weapons detection technology in the aftermath of last year’s deadly mass shooting at gay nightclub Pulse.

Weapons detection specialist Patriot One Technologies announced Tuesday that it interacts with VGroup Concepts for the launch of a ‘Safe Neighborhoods’ initiative. VGroup-Concepts is the parent company of several restaurants and clubs in Orlando, including now-shuttered Wrist.

Pulse was focused on a deadly attack on the 12th of June 2016, when a gunman opened fire, killing 49 club goers and wounding 53 more.

A major challenge for the locations, such as schools, clubs and stadiums, is that they are often limited seurity, making them ‘soft targets’, according to the Patriot One Technologies. The cooperation with VGroup-Concepts aimed at the promotion of the safety on locations Orlando via the NForce CMR-1000-detection system.

The NForce CMR-1000 can be installed in the corridors and doorways. It uses microwave radar technology to detect hidden metals. Once discovered, the metal content is sent to a database and analyzed against known guns, knives, suicide vests and other weapons. If the material is found to be threatening, the security is alerted.

Patriot One Technologies CEO Martin Cronin, said in a press release, “Our number-one goal at Patriot is to offer a solution that works with current security professionals to help deter, detect and defend against active threats of violence on innocent citizens everywhere.”
