Each state agency can choose an ArmsTracker configuration to suit, for example Police, Military or Customs, then select only the features it needs. We configure every installation to match local laws and procedures, then we help the client to migrate any existing data. Available functions currently include:
The heart of any arms control system, record-keeping is the most requested category of international donor assistance. One UN report found that: ‘transfer controls, marking and record-keeping, as well as tracing… are often neglected or under-developed... poor record-keeping remains one of the primary shortcomings among States'.
ArmsTracker is the world's most affordable record-keeping solution designed for small arms, light weapons and ammunition.
ArmsTracker identifies and stores photos of each officer, private individual or legal entity authorised to use or possess a specified arm or category of arms. State and agency licences can be issued to a rank or position, such as station commander or armourer. Every weapon is separately identified, photographed and registered, along with any ballistic images of expended ammunition or casings.
ArmsTracker follows each registered arm as it transfers from one licence holder to another. A tamper-protected database maintains a chain of evidence and a history of personal responsibility for each arm all the way from import or seizure to export or destruction. E-mail reminders can be sent to expired licence holders, reducing the number of unlawfully held civilian weapons while recovering compliance costs.
Thanks to a partnership with the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission, ArmsTracker automatically classifies most of the world's small arms by maker, type, action and calibre. When an unknown firearm is located or seized, ArmsTracker will also link to international law enforcement firearm identification libraries. These describe the world's small arms by manufacturer, brand, model, action and markings, often with photographs. Accurate identification can validate both international tracing requests and local records of seized firearms awaiting judicial process, destruction or other disposal.
ArmsTracker generates instant reports for management, or to inform other government departments. Without sharing their own confidential data, separate state agencies can deliver anonymised, but compatible statistics for use in reports to international instruments such as the Arms Trade Treaty, the UN Register of Conventional Arms and UN Security Council Arms Sanctions Committees. While popular report templates are included, users can also create their own. ArmsTracker both exports and imports data in the most common file formats.
