METRAVIB SLATE is mounted of VAB of French Army.
     

In 2012, METRAVIB supplied eighty SLATE (sniper acoustic localization system) units to equip the French army’s VAB TOP vehicles (front-line armored vehicles with remotely operated turret) manufactured by RTD (Renault Trucks Defense).

Intuitive and easy to use, the SLATE system detects and quickly locates gunshots, allowing for an extremely quick response. This one-of-a-kind system comprises a gunshot acoustic detection antenna linked to the remotely operated turret (TOP) on the vehicle. As soon as a shot is detected, the TOP semi-automatically moves to the right position to deal with the threat.

SLATE enables precious seconds to be saved in combat missions.
