The Acoustic Multi-Mission Sensor (AMMS) exploits the benefits of novel Acoustic Vector Sensor technology, allowing the AMMS to detect, localize and track the full spectrum of acoustic battlefield signatures, covering Small Arms Fire (SAF),  rockets, artillery, mortars (RAM) and helicopters.

P-AMMS Sniper Localization

A Single AMMS (Personal AMMS) captures the shockwave of incoming rounds up to an extended Closest Point of Approach (CPA) range of 400 meters, providing an unprecedented accuracy, both angular (+- 2 %) and range ( +- 5 %)


RAM-SCORE is an AMMS array based system designed for training and proving ranges, providing fast and accurate location reports of both the points of impact (POI) and point of origin (POO) for various sorts of ammunition such as rockets, artillery and mortars.

UAV based | Acoustic Target Acquisition

Microflown's Acoustic Vector Sensors can be used for Acoustic Target Localisation on UAV platforms. Acoustic Vector Sensors on-board the UAV, together with local data processing, can detect and localise gunshots and artillery breaks on the ground.

Vehicle Mounted GUN-LOC and RAM-LOC Acoustic Vector Sensors (AVS)

Vehicle-mounted AMMS

Microflown AVISA's acoustic vector sensors can localise gunshots and rockets, artillery and mortars (RAM) in 3D space.This allows 'slew to cue' cameras, remote weapon stations and other sensors.





Microflown AVISA

Microflown AVISA’s mission is to provide a complete 3D acoustic situational awareness by detecting, localizing and classifying the full range of audible battlefield threats, such as:

  • Small Arms Fire
  • Rockets/ Artillery/ Mortars
  • Engine driven platforms (helicopters, planes, UAVs, boats and ground vehicles)

Enabler is the Microflown, the world’s first and only acoustic sensor that measures acoustic particle velocity instead of the well-known sound pressure.

The core product is the Acoustic Multi-Mission Sensor (AMMS), incorporating various directional Microflown sensors, a DSP and a wind cap.

There is a variety of options for geo referencing, powering and communication.

An AMMS is passive, cannot be jammed, requires no line of sight (darkness, fog, dust) and also works under adverse weather conditions (heavy rain).

As the AMMS is low Size, Weight and Power (low SWaP), it can be deployed on all sorts of carrying platforms, such as:

  • Unattended Ground Sensors
  • Vehicles ( wheeled and tracked)
  • Helicopters
  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (quad copters and fixed wings)
  • (Fast) Boats
  • Buoys

The AMMS is considered to be the game changer in a situational awareness, allowing new doctrines.
