Evolv Technology to Enhance Security at the 121st U.S. Open Championship

Evolv is transforming the physical security industry by providing the world's first AI-enabled, touchless screening system. Built on its Evolv Cortex AI software platform, Evolv continually improves its customers' security posture through machine learning and on-demand analytical insights in a way that legacy metal detectors and other analog screening systems cannot provide.

Evolv Express® will help promote safety by using weapons detection screening at the main entry points without requiring fans to break stride for physical searches, as is the case with traditional screening methods. While weapons of any kind have never been allowed at the event, this new system will detect them if they are brought in, and guests will be asked to remove them from the property.

Evolv Technology, the leader in touchless security screening, will utilize its artificial intelligence-based touchless system, Evolv Express®, to enhance the safety of fans at the upcoming U.S. Open Golf Championship at Torrey Pines Golf Course. This will be the 10th major national sporting event in 2021 that Evolv has supported with its innovative security screening technology.

"The USGA has a track record of innovating to enhance the fan experience without negatively affecting the game, and we're thrilled to pilot Evolv Express with them to further promote this," said Peter George, CEO, Evolv Technology. "By proactively addressing the safety of its fans, the USGA will enable them to spend more time along the fairways and in grandstands than in line waiting to enter."

Evolv Express delivers up to a 70% reduction in cost and is 10 times faster than traditional metal detectors, resulting in screening an unparalleled 3,600 people per hour, per system. The world's most iconic venues and companies place their trust in Evolv to protect their employees and visitors, including Uber, Lincoln Center, L.L. Bean, Six Flags, and hundreds of others.

Evolv's systems have been used to screen more than 60 million people, second only to the Department of Homeland Security's Transportation Security Administration in screening people in the U.S.

The new screening system will be in place at the Main Admission Gate of the Championship. Fans will not have to stop or empty their pockets unless directed to do so by security personnel.
