System for accurate detection of enemy fire positions

The problem of detecting the location of the enemy, which is armed with small weapons, solved by METRAVIB specialists.
Special detection systems allow detecting the exact location of a shooting enemy along the trajectory and speed of flying bullets. The main means for obtaining information is a complex of microphones. Systems of this type are already used in Afghanistan and Iraq and are proving to be effective. Here we are talking about the acclaimed Boomerang complexes.

However, the new METRAVIB PEARL systems provide an even more powerful detection tool. They can be installed directly on the weapon (up to automatic grenade launchers and large-caliber sniper rifles) and with their help during the battle to clarify the location of the enemy fighters.

The size of the complex METRAVIB PEARL is small - does not exceed the size of the human palm. In this case, the system works on the basis of a simple algorithm that allows analyzing information from microphones. On the complex there are special sensors that show the arrow, in which direction it is worthwhile to start firing to destroy the hidden enemy. The system of illuminating sensors allows you to find out whether shooting is in that direction. If the green sensor lights up, it means that the fighter took aim with perfect accuracy. With the help of such a system, it is easy to conduct not only fire at suppression, but also aimed fire.

The speed of the system METRAVIB PEARL is much higher than the speed of human reaction. This is what allows you to conduct accurate fire without losing time, even in a situation when a fighter is ambushed.

For the machine-gunner, the use of the METRAVIB PEARL system allows in the shortest possible time to suppress any masked enemy firing point.

Today, such a system is planned to equip not only individual shooters, but also helicopters, which will coordinate the fire attacks from the air. In this case, the use of expensive systems of advanced optics or UAVs loses meaning.

    Cool thing, but something is not believed in its effectiveness - too small.

        It will go against the Papuans, but in real war it’s useless zero, when the artillery is hammering, helicopters fly and everyone around shoots no good at it.

          What will it be of no use?
          And why are you so sure that the war between the developed powers will look just like that?

    If a sniper shoots under a machine gunner or just as part of a unit, how will the system distinguish who is where?

    whose toy? how much is? TTX - in the sense of detection range and the principle of determining the most priority goals? (so that there is no situation when the arrow points to the farthest enemy or the loudest ... how is this issue resolved?)
    The article is, of course, a plus, but the information content is exactly as much as the weight in the donut hole :(

    Stopudovo does not pull on a child prodigy, even a seemingly fragile and bulky toy. I will not say that it is completely useless, but more against lone moron shooters. And if a massive fire? and if the arrows move? and if they use PBS?
    And another question - this blue automatic feel Is this a prototype for arming special forces? Well there’s a gay special-purpose battalion for attacks from the rear wink With shouts: "We are already here, praativnye!" laughing

      That's right, but another problem: how will the system distinguish its own from strangers?

    This device will work only under the ideal condition - the direct passage of a sound wave, with reflected (and if several times?) It will be difficult for him to calculate the direction.

    For the "mega-intelligent super-wizards" who developed this apparatus, they have too childish ideas about the shelling of the column. And most likely, the sound detection system will only increase the losses from "friendly fire"

    For positional and trench warfare during a "lull", it may have some meaning ... But in all other cases, such a system is of little use ... For example, I can't imagine how you can determine the direction by sound when the fire is leading well At least a platoon of submachine gunners ... Dummy and self-indulgence in one word ...

      And if this platoon has information that the enemy has this system, then before opening fire they can launch diesel without a silencer in the trench. Until he dies, the hell on who you aim more wassat

      And in fact, it is suitable only in silence to hunt a solitary mosquito. To shoot one in flight so that the dream does not spoil is an ideal thing. It’s useless against a sniper, he doesn’t shoot in bursts, and there is no block of gyroscopes and remembering the position of an enemy shooter relative to a weapon, as I understand it. Or is there anyway?

    It seems to me that this is a divorce, the goal in the direction? And the range, and the height ratio? And to fasten to the helicopter .....
