PILAR is a system that localises, precisely and in real time, shots fired by small and medium calibre weapons, based on the sound waves generated by the shot. This version is designed for the surveillance of sensitive sites or temporary sites (venues).

 

The system includes 2 to 20 acoustic arrays chained around the site to protect. The number of acoustic arrays depends on the area to be covered. Results are provided on a ruggedized PC and include the GPS localisation of the threat, as well as azimuth, elevation and range. Combat proven: the PILAR system Ground Version has been successfully used by several NATO armed forces in Afghanistan and for the surveillance of VIP events (Bastille Day parade, etc.).

 

SURVEILLANCE OF SITES AND EVENTS

A day camera and/or a thermal camera can be installed on PIVOT.
