The AID panel consists of a thin film with a conductive ink trace that is encased through the film. When that conductive trace is broken by a sharp edge or bullet (down to 22 caliber), AID detects the event and automatically sends an emergency alert over Bluetooth (or other communication method) to a phone or radio that can forward the notification through the communication infrastructure to emergency services, backup personnel, and/or dispatch/command. The panel can be worn in the front and back - typically in the body armor carrier, in front of the ballistic panel. Each panel has two separate zones so that the system can detect injuries to the upper front, lower front, upper back, or lower back.
