Aegis AI

Effective protection from gun threats

Affordable, easy to install AI software solution that works with your existing security infrastructure

Aegis AI automatically detects firearms in your existing security camera feeds, providing early warning and dramatically improving law enforcement response.


Our Story

Relentless passion for combating gun violence

I grew up in South Africa, which has one of the highest rates of gun violence in the world. As a child, I constantly heard stories of family friends being impacted by armed robberies and even home intrusions.


This upbringing gave me a lifelong passion for tackling the gun violence epidemic. After the tragedies of the last few years here in the US, I decided to use my Marine Corps connections to interview police, educators, and other veterans to see how I could help. These conversations led to the idea that eventually became Aegis AI. We employ computer vision to automatically identify threats in existing security camera systems, dramatically cutting the time it takes for law enforcement to respond to gun violence.


Our team of data scientists and engineers have led AI research and engineering projects at some of the leading institutions in the world, such as Microsoft, University of Chicago, Washington University in St. Louis, and MIT's Lincoln Laboratory. Equally importantly, we are all relentlessly committed to the mission of gun violence reduction in the communities that we love.

What are the benefits?

In an emergency situation - first responders arrive faster, you evacuate sooner, and you won't even notice that it's there until it's needed.



It currently takes an average of 18 minutes for law enforcement to respond to active shooter events (Department of Homeland Security). Aegis AI dramatically improves the responsiveness of security, law enforcement, and emergency medical services. We provide first responders with real-time intelligence on the suspect, allowing them to neutralize the threat and render aid to victims much more rapidly than before. 



Your designated staff will be immediately notified with the camera location and the detected frame as soon as a weapon is drawn. This provides building occupants with the critical information to make immediate lifesaving decisions.



We don't want the places where we work, live, play, and worship to feel like TSA checkpoints. Aegis AI integrates with your existing infrastructure and there is no additional hardware required. That means that it is completely invisible and costs only a small fraction of hiring a single armed guard.
