Company Summary

We are dedicated to designing smart technology to eliminate the death and heartache caused by hunting accidents. IRIS active alert technology is designed to prevent hunters being mistaken for game and shot. Every hunter knows the rules, yet every year hunters continue to be shot and killed by other hunters—none of whom dreamed it would happen to them. IRIS technology will help ensure millions of hunters return home safely to their families.

Inspired by safety technology like personal locator beacons, avalanche transceivers and GPS, Michael strongly believes hunters also deserve the safety benefits 21st century technology can provide.
