After the TASER CAM came the Axon Pro. Lessons learned from the Axon Pro influenced the design of the Axon Flex camera, and eventually, the Axon Body line. By the time Axon Body 2 came around, Axon’s BWC was hitting its stride.
“Axon Body 2 was the culmination of all this good customer feedback from Axon Body 1. We honed in on keeping it simple, focusing on a few core feature sets,” Mesri says. “We hit that sweet spot where there was a real need and interest from law enforcement and the general public."
And, finally, Axon released the camera that law enforcement, EMT, private security, and other industries know today: Axon Body 3. Where the Axon Body 2 was similar to a GoPro camera, Axon Body 3 is more analogous to a cell phone.
Axon Body 3 marked a significant departure from conventional BWC technology. More than just a recording device, it’s a rugged communications beacon that enables law enforcement to livestream their situations intuitively. It sends alerts to permissioned staff during certain events, like when a weapon is deployed, and can track an officer’s location to help ensure their safety. The Axon Body 3 set a new standard for BWC, and now, the next generation is here to raise the bar even higher.
