Description

The PILARw is an integrated gunshot detection system designed and manufactured by the French Defence Company ACOEM through its METRAVIB brand. The PILARw can be mounted on combat armoured vehicle or on a ground tripod to protect military bases. 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.
The system has two principal applications: ground-level deployment, and moving vehicles with the mobile on-board version. However, the PILARw system has been adapted and new versions have recently become available for use in other situations: by infantry, and on board ships, helicopters, drones, etc.
Thanks to its unique expertise in the field of vibrations and acoustics, METRAVIB products offer exceptional threat observation, identification and localisation capabilities.
When installed on Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFV), PILARw can be efficiently linked with RWS (Remote Weapon Station) , directly or indirectly via a Battlefield Management System (BMS) like it has been achieved on Belgium AIV or Polish Rosomak wheeled armoured vehicle which is currently deployed in Afghanistan.

Product description

Armoured vehicles are, by definition, noisy and isolated from their surroundings, so having access to real-time information when on board is a major advantage. Enemy fire can come from anywhere, anytime and, if aimed correctly, can be fatal.
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 on-board version provides real-time information on enemy fire (point of origin, trajectory of the bullet, calibre of the weapon), giving users a significant advantage on the battlefield.
Remote Weapon Stations (RWS) on vehicles can be connected to the PILARw system to enable crews to return fire rapidly. PILARw can also be used to protect convoys, which are generally exposed to a high level of threat.

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
• 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
The PILARw systems provide enhanced situational awareness for small arms attacks. Gunshots are among the main threats in guerrilla, trafficking, asymmetric conflicts situations for law enforcement and military forces. Therefore, the ability to automatically detect and locate a gunshot in a complex environment grants the forces a leading advantage to succeed in their missions. This is the core function of the light acoustic sensor systems PILARw. The PILARw systems are designed to provide in real-time accurate information on enemy location.
Compact, light weight, battery operated, PILARw detects and localises small and medium calibres, single and burst shots, whit or without suppressor. PILARw equipment is designed to be easily installed on the weapon, using standard interface. Hence, it allows to quickly returning the shot directly to the target. Amongst the possible applications, PILARw can be mounted on assault rifle, sniper gun, GPMG, the weapons being ground based or vehicle mounted.
The PILARw has two principal applications: ground-level deployment, and moving vehicles with the mobile on-board version. However, the PILARw system has been adapted and new versions have recently become available for use in other situations: by infantry, and on board ships, helicopters, drones, etc.
