IoT for Military and Police
guns go missing or are stolen every year – and that’s just in the U.S.
But it’s a problem that’s also global in nature.
With hundreds of thousands of incidents occurring world-wide, the black market in small-arms trafficking is a $1 billion-a-year global business.
Some 500,000 people are killed each year by the 639 million small arms in circulation, and in some conflicts up to 80 percent of casualties are caused by these weapons.
Stealing guns isn’t new. IoT solutions are.
IoT can reduce costs and increase efficiencies from operational processes to labor optimization across all industries. But unlike most other sectors, the police and military can leverage IoT modules for firearms to save lives as well as improve performance and create real ROI.
IoT Modules for the Police and Military Provide Simple Firearm Tracking
For a problem with such far-reaching consequences, IoT solutions for the police and military can be extraordinarily simple. By placing 2G and NB-IoT cellular modules with global, GSM cellular connectivity into the grips of guns, agencies and companies can easily track weapons and thus save both money and lives. This can be especially valuable for the police and military in developing nations, where the price of a gun can top a month’s salary or wield valuable relationships, connections, or assets.

GeoTraq IoT Modules Provide Needed Capabilities for Firearm Security
Beyond simple tracking, appropriate IoT modules for the police and military can also provide additional layers of firearm security. Event-based notifications can be provided by GeoTraq’s IoT modules based on a variety of scenarios, including trigger pulls, or a firearm leaving a geofenced area or requiring maintenance. And with global coverage, a battery life of 10+ years, and their small size, they are ideally suited for use in a wide range of police and military IoT applications.
A human life is priceless – but that doesn’t mean IoT solutions for the police and military need to be expensive.
For less than $20 a year for both module and cellular connectivity covering more than 193 countries worldwide, GeoTraq’s IoT modules for police and military are potential life-savers. And they’re not just inexpensive – they are also easy to use and simple to install and can often be connected in five minutes or less, which means implementation costs to strained agency budgets are kept affordable.
