The Blueline 360 AT-EAS Active Threat Early Alert System is designed to save lives by increasing the reaction time of those facing an active attack and rapidly decreasing the response of law enforcement. Designed and managed by retired law enforcement officers and military veterans who specialize in police tactics and response, the Blueline 360 program puts an equal emphasis on technology and training to create a comprehensive and effective solution.
AT-EAS is designed to create three phases of balanced tactics. First, the alert phase is vital to warn those who are under attack that a threat is imminent, and that they must take immediate action. (See video for demonstration.)
In this phase, the AT-EAS is activated by mobile wireless deployable pendants, which communicate using 50-channel megahertz technology (which is wifi/bluetooth/network independent, and powered by a five-year lithium battery.) A single button pendant is specifically designed for mobility and ease-of-use from a loss of dexterity and fine motor skills, both of which occur during high-stress situations.
The mobile pendants are secured in rip cases and strategically placed for trained end-users in safe corners and secured employee areas. The proprietary cases are specifically designed to secure the mobile pendant and are equipped with breakaway tabs and temper sensors to prevent false alerts.
When the mobile pendants are pressed, distinct siren strobes are activated. These siren strobes are marked for easy identification. They serve as an instant notification to provide precious seconds to warn and prepare those who are facing an imminent attack in addition to on-site security personnel who may have the ability to rapidly engage the threat. This alert creates tactical options for those under attack to execute rapid evade or cover options based on their training and current location.
The second phase of AT-EAS is to distract the attacker. An Active Threat is most efficient during the first 15-60 seconds of his attack, as he has the element of surprise and is rarely challenged. Creating a distraction within 15-20 seconds can drastically change the outcome of an attack and buy precious time for those under fire. The visual and audible distraction of the siren strobe is designed to take the threat out of predator mode and create the OODA loop to break hyper focus and efficiency. While creating time for personnel to better evade, cover or possibly engage the threat.
Lastly, rapid response by law enforcement and on-site security is the third phase of the AT-EAS balanced tactical plan. When the AT-EAS is activated, instant text notifications are sent to the cell phones of pre-programmed recipients. These recipients include on-site end users who are facing the attack, informing them of the exact location of the system activation; on-site security, law enforcement and personnel; local law enforcement on patrol and not on their police radio; local federal agencies tasked with responding; and local police dispatch, bypassing the initial arduous initial 911 phone call to report an attack (which has taken upward of 3-8 minutes in the past.) Local trauma centers are also notified to prepare staff for a possible mass-casualty event in real time, as are key personnel such as administrators and government officials requiring immediate notification of a crisis event.
All of this critical information — typically obtained by the 911 call needed for an effective response — all transmitted in 3 seconds.
Put your mind “at ease” and let Blueline be your voice.
