Author: Brian Karas, Published on Mar 17, 2017

Evolv Technologies has just raised $18 million, bringing its total to $30M, for developing what the company says is the most advanced threat detection system designed to prevent mass casualties - in other words, find people carrying weapons into places like airport or stadiums.

CEO Mike Ellenbogen spoke with IPVM about their technology, and the companies plans around their body scanner and other upcoming products.

In this report we analyze Evolv's technology, price tag, and target markets.
