THREAT / END USER ISSUE

In regions with tensions, the cease fires agreed upon along a border line are usually fragile. The global community is often asked to send in observers trying to maintain the peace and to report on violations from both sides. There is a need for well described events in the formal reporting, when, where, what kind of weapon etc.

Often, the number of observers is too little to supervise the stretches of borders. Unattended systems are needed.

Camera systems may be installed, but they do not provide always the information needed, as there might not be a line of sight for instance.

OUR SOLUTION

The ACoustic QUantification of IncidenTs (ACQUIT) firmware allows the detection and localization of hostile firing events, providing timestamped results on which side was firing what kind of weapon. The spectrum of weapons may include mortars, rockets and artillery as well as hand held small arms fire.
Hosted on a network of CASTLE sensor posts, either on the ground or vehicle mounted, the ACQUIT firmware allows a command post to monitor remotely the events taking place.

KEY CHARACTERISTICS

  • Unattended use
  • All weather, day and night, non-line-of-sight capability
  • Low SWaP, rapidly (re-)deployable, mobile
  • Passive, low observable
  • Requires no line of sight
  • Detection ranges up to 1800m (SAF) / 20 km for artillery
  • Operates as self-contained system, optional interfacing via message interface

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The ACQUIT firmware combines the processed signals from each of the sensor posts on the command post level.
The results can be visualized and/or use to cue for instance cameras.
