South Korea's Jain Technology has completed development of its SODA-v counter sniper detection system (CSDS), and it is scheduled to enter production in 2019 for an undisclosed customer.
For ground-based applications, the CSDS sensor array is installed on a tripod with adjustable legs, connected to the operator's flat panel display that includes a built-in GPS and compass.
It has a total of seven microphones to give coverage through 360°, with one microphone providing vertical cover and the other six horizontal cover.
Jain Technology said its system can detect incoming small-arms fire within one second and provide both visual and audio alerts to the operator, such as "2 o'clock at 800 m". The company did not release details of the maximum calibre of incoming weapons or maximum range of the system.
