When used in the heat of a gunfight, the Shoulder Worn Acoustic Targeting System gives soldiers under fire a fighting chance by allowing them to quickly, easily and safely detect where their attackers are firing from.
Designed by QinetiQ North America, the Shoulder Worn Acoustic Targeting System is no bigger than a wallet and weighs less than a pound. Despite its diminutive size, however, the device has real strategic and life-saving potential.
Using advanced detection technology, the Shoulder Worn Acoustic Targeting System can interpret shockwaves from a gun blast and provide an audio readout of the shooter's bearing and distance in mere seconds. So far, the device has already been purchased by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, who will no doubt use it to help keep their soldiers in mountainous areas like Afghanistan one step ahead.
