BW – ATF Dingo 2 GE A2.2 SDA
ATF Dingo 2 GE A2.2 Schützendetektionsausstattung
Overall, five ATF Dingo 2 GE A2 Patrol and Security Vehicles received the PILAR MK-IIw gunshot detection system from the French company Metravib, and the light FLW 100 RCWS. After conversion the vehicles were designated ATF Dingo 2 GE A2.2 Gunshot Detection System.
With this system, weapons of small and medium calibre, RPGs and mortars can be detected with 95% accuracy out to a distance of 1,200m in a 360° monitoring area. As a result, these threats can be more easily and quickly engaged. The gunshot detection system consists of an acoustic array with four microphones on top of the vehicle’s rear, a NavKit module with integrated GPS and digital compass, a data interface and acquisition module, and a processing and display unit with ShotGuard software in the interior.
The system can operate in both stationary and moving modes. The functioning principle of the gunshot detection system is based on the measurement of two definite acoustic sources: muzzle blast (which emerges through decompression in the muzzle of the gun) and the bang when a projectile travels at supersonic speed. The system can recognise the azimuth, elevation and distance of the place where the shot came from in real time. It then computes the calibre and shows all this information graphically. Within seconds the system can compute and identify the origin of rounds from subsonic and hypersonic weapons with a calibre between 5.56mm and 20mm. The system automatically records the detected shots.
