Making Everywhere Safer
Motorola Solutions’ Concealed Weapons Detection (CWD)

The days of invasive weapons screening are over. Screening procedures that rely on metal detectors, hand wands, and invasive bag checks are slow and manual, resulting in uncomfortable, and unsafe, crowding.

Introducing Motorola Solutions
Concealed Weapons Detection (CWD)

Motorola Solutions' CWD powered by Evolv Technology is designed to address the active shooter epidemic by taking a proactive approach to keeping people and assets safe. It is the world’s first and only touchless security screening solution that is conducive to supporting post-pandemic security screening requirements.

CWD integrates Evolv's capabilities with Avigilon Control Center (ACC™) software, Motorola Solutions' AI-powered video management software, to help security screeners see, understand, and act on threats with more speed and accuracy than ever before, making it possible to deliver unprecedented safety while also enhancing the visitor experience. Once a threat is detected and confirmed by a security screener, alarms are sent directly to ACC. Avigilon H5A Modular cameras on board the towers then stream live video to ACC, which gets recorded alongside the fixed video security feeds that are installed at the venue.

AI Differentiates Personal Items from Threats

Unlike traditional metal detectors, Motorola Solutions' CWD, an innovative AI-based sensor platform designed to instantly distinguish between threats and personal items such as keys, coins, belts, and cell phones on their body or in their bag. It can detect weapons that include mass casualty metallic threats such as firearms and explosive devices.

Over time, CWD becomes more intelligent as new threat profiles are discovered to help your security team stay ahead of the changing threat landscape. Security teams can dial the sensitivity in for their venue and easily change it based on the threat scenario, event, or other intelligence. With an adjustable sensitivity level, security teams can manage all aspects of usage to enable safety and ensure a positive guest experience.

See Potential Threats for Faster Issue Resolution

When a potential threat is detected by the system, real-time image-aided alarms show guards where the potential threat is located on a person or in his or her bag. This greatly reduces the amount of physical contact required and allows guards to act quickly and efficiently.

Easy to Operate

When a threat is detected, the CWD tablet displays the location of the potential threat on the person’s body or in their bag using bounding boxes. Security screening operators using the tablet will confirm or verify the threat, which then triggers an alarm to be sent directly to ACC for notification to Security Operators in the form of an alert or warning in ACC’s Focus of Attention interface. Cameras on board the CWD can simultaneously stream video to ACC and record alongside the fixed video security feeds that are installed at the venue.
