Ultra Electronics has developed a gunshot location sensor small enough to be rifle-mounted. It measures range and direction (bearing and elevation), providing an immediate benefit to the soldier who is carrying it. It is small enough to be fitted unobtrusively on a wide range of other mobile or fixed platforms. The sensor operates standalone, but can also be wirelessly networked, potentially enabling real-time plotting of live-fire contacts, which could revolutionize the commander's view of an engagement and his ability to concentrate firepower. This paper describes the technology, the results of trials, and the potential applications for such a sensor.
