Motorola Solutions Venture Capital: Investing in the Future of Public Safety

Around the world, public safety agencies are under pressure: increasing urbanization, aging populations and an unpredictable climate make it more difficult to keep us safe, while ever-greater public scrutiny requires meticulous record-keeping and unprecedented transparency. In response, public safety is transforming: going beyond responding to incidents, to using technology to predict, mitigate and even prevent them from happening in the first place. Helping lead this transformation requires more than cutting-edge technology: they’ll need innovative, purpose-built solutions that deliver just the right information at just the right time. Part of the Chief Technology Office, Motorola Solutions Venture Capital invests in applications and technologies that complement and enhance our ability to keep public safety personnel safe and effective at their jobs, by letting them focus on the mission, not the technology.

"More and more, innovation requires partnerships, investments and inorganic capabilities built in. You can't innovate at 100% by yourself; it requires an ecosystem."

We're a product company, but our products are accessible, reliable, and practical robots designed to help real world problems. We don't design general-purpose robots, hoping that some day they'll have a use. Our robots are specific and purpose-built, targeting problems that can only be solved by ingenious robotic design.

SST, Inc. is the global leader in gunfire detection and location technology providing the most trusted, scalable and reliable gunfire alert and analysis available today.

TRX is the developer of NEON®, delivering location and mapping indoors, underground, and in dense urban areas where GPS is not available or is unreliable. NEON delivers accurate 3D indoor location through the use of advanced sensor fusion, ranging, and dynamic mapping algorithms.

VocalZoom has developed a unique optoelectronic microphone able to substantially enhance a speaker's voice over any background noise. The technology creates a "virtual cube" in space, sensing sound from only within the cube. This enables highly significant speech enhancement and precise speaker isolation, which are the key elements missing today to enable mass-usage of voice-driven applications for devices such as radios and smartphones.
