TriggerSmart, an Irish company selling smart-gun technology developed by the Georgia Tech Research Institute, is considering a move to the United States.

The smart gun technology was developed at the GTRI location in Athlone, Ireland. TriggerSmart has patented the technology to create a user-unique childproof radio frequency identification (RFID). It prevents any unauthorized person from firing the weapon.

According to a report at the IrishTimes.com, TriggerSmart owner Pat O’Shaughnessy said he was confident his company will secure a major contract to license its technology to the US civilian market. “It’s very likely. The reaction is very positive,” he said. “Everything is very positive and we hope to have a major announcement in the coming weeks to continuing that ongoing relationship with the US government.”
