Shoulder Wearable Acoustic Targeting System (SWATS™)

Ground forces operating in urban and rural combat environments are faced with the continual risk of random attack by snipers and other gunfire threats. QinetiQ’s SWATS™ – part of our EARS family of gunshot localisation systems – reduces casualties by giving users the immediate situational awareness capabilities they need to respond instantly and accurately to hostile attacks.

SWATS

Compact and lightweight, SWATS is mounted on the user’s non-firing shoulder. The system enables soldiers in difficult acoustic environments to go immediately from a defensive to an offensive posture, accurately detecting and locating the origin of incoming gunfire in a fraction of a second. SWATS alerts the soldier with an audible voice announcement on the range, bearing and grid position of the threat.
