As a world leader in acoustic gunshot detection systems, METRAVIB supplies equipment to 20 armies around the world, including those of thirteen NATO members, providing daily protection for personnel operating at sensitive sites or at events. The SLATE gunshot detection and localization system is mounted on the VAB 4x4 armoured personnel carrier deployed in the Central African Republic by the French army.
     
These gunshot detection and localization systems, named SLATE (PILARw), are made up of four microphones, a calculation unit and an acoustic antenna. They detect and analyze the sound waves emitted by light weapon gunshots to triangulate the position of the shooter, accurately and within one second.

Sixty new systems were delivered at the end of 2014 to complement the equipment already supplied to the French Army. In total, 200 SLATE systems will be mounted on the VAB armored Vehicles of Renault Trucks Defense.

Acoustic gunshot detection equipment is now recognized by armed forces and has become an essential component in the protection of personnel.

According to General Charles Beaudouin’s testimony, Director of the Technical Section, French Armed Forces (Section Technique de l’Armée de Terre – STAT):

“The SLATE system has shown its real value in operations, proving to be an essential threat detector that should equip all modern armored vehicles. This battle proven system can be efficiently coupled with a Remote Weapon Stations, providing immediate slew-to-cue capacity. The information provided by the SLATE system can be automatically sent to other units by the armored vehicle's information system. For these reasons SLATE has won the respect and trust of the French Armed Forces in theaters of operation.”
