Description

The PILARw is an integrated gunshot detection system designed and manufactured by the French Defence Company ACOEM through its METRAVIB brand. Conflicts are becoming increasingly complex and armed forces must face threats and environments that are more varied than ever. Throughout the world, METRAVIB provides armed forces with solutions to protect national military areas or military troops deployed on the modern battlefield. PILARw uses the sound waves generated by the firing of small arms, Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs), mortars and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) to detect and accurately identify their location in real time. The Ground and Vehicular Versions of PILARw are type classified by the U.S. Army Special Operations COMmand (USSOCOM) as the M1 & M2 reference number in the GDS category (Gunshot Detection Systems).

Product description

The PILARw system uses the sound waves generated by the firing of small arms, Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs), mortars and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) to detect and accurately identify their location in real time. The PILARw screen displays the precise origin of the enemy fire in 3D. For dismounted operation, the system can also be configured to operate with PDA controller. PILARw fixed station device locates the origin of the shot within ±2° in bearing and a typical ±20% in range. The maximum detection range can extend beyond 1,500m. The system provides a broad coverage of weapon’s acoustic sources, detecting and processing both subsonic and supersonic signals generated by 5.56 through 20mm caliber shots with or without silencer as well as RPGs, mortars and anti-tank missile. Target’s azimuth, elevation and range are generated within two seconds after the detection of the event.

System Components
The PILARw system is made up of three principal components, which can be combined to create different configurations according to the technical features required:
• A folding acoustic antenna with embedded sensors and electronics. The ground version of the PILARw is mounted on a tripod which can be deployed quickly on the field.
• A data acquisition and interface module to process the signal transmitted by the antenna(s)
• A ruggedized display in the form of a laptop computer, PDA, or Battle Management System, in order to operate the system and view results using PILARw's SHOTGUARD software and MMI (Man/Machine Interface).

Combat use
During conflicts and peacekeeping missions, armed forces must ensure that temporary and permanent military bases or sensitive buildings are protected. In today's asymmetric conflicts, and particularly in urban environments, a potential threat can come from anywhere. Therefore there is an increasing need for effective detection systems.
The PILARw system ground version uses the sound waves generated by the firing of small arms, Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs), mortars and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) to detect and accurately identify their location in real time.
This data allows to protect personnel and equipment, and to mount an immediate and appropriate response. These systems serve a providing a deterrent effect and are conferring reassurance for the troops, who knows that they are protected in the event of an attack. The data collected can also be used during post-assignment debriefings to indicate danger zones and to serve as evidence.
