Former U.S. Air Force Capt. Chris Perrine, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, chief of acquisitions for net centric services-2, from Robbins Air Force Base, Ga., monitors his team’s active shooter detection system during the 2015 Air Force Research Laboratory Commander’s Challenge. The system, which was patented by the Air Force, enables dispatchers to see exactly where in the building an alarm was activated and inform emergency responders, allowing them to better respond to the threat. Protective Innovations LLC, a company started by Perrine after his separation, licensed the technology for commercialization in 2017.
