Actuate Offers Its Gun Detection AI Solution To Local and State Governments Through Partnership with UNICOM Government 

NEW YORK, NY – Actuate, the computer vision technology company behind the leading threat- and intruder-detecting AI software, today announced its partnership with UNICOM Government, Inc. (UGI) of Chantilly, VA to be its exclusive government reseller of its A.I. Gun Detection Solution for state and local governments within the 50 U.S. contiguous states. 

Unicom Government will introduce and sell Actuate’s new vertical-specific security solutions that target government, education and public-sector customers.

“With the rate of gun violence rising to epidemic levels, we believe it is imperative to get a solution like Actuate in front of the right government stakeholders,” said Sonny Tai, CEO, Actuate. “Working with a partner like UGI gives us the in-roads to get our product into the right hands, with the goal of making every facility a person enters safer.”

Actuate uses a custom AI model to detect weapons and intruders as soon as they’re visible. The system then notifies designated personnel, providing them with precious seconds in the event of an emergency. Actuate also provides additional features, such as intruder detection, and its capabilities are constantly growing and evolving.

UGI is a leading provider of IT solutions supporting the missions of government agencies.


Actuate is an AI company that builds computer vision software to turn any security camera into an intruder- and threat-detecting smart camera, dramatically cutting the time it takes for law enforcement to respond to gun violence. Former Marine Sonny Tai, CEO of Actuate, and Ben Ziomek, CPO of Actuate, co-founded the company with the mission of addressing America’s gun violence epidemic. The product features include alerting customers to unauthorized entry to customer facilities, as well as catching individuals acting in a threatening manner even before weapons are fully visible.
