ATK’s Acoustic Hostile Fire Detection Systems provides detection of small caliber ball and tracer rounds, anti-aircraft artillery, unguided rockets, and rocket propelled grenades (RPGs). The system is light-weight and easy to install and has multiple display options. The acoustic sensor can be used as a stand-alone Hostile Fire detection system or in conjunction with other Threat Warning Systems to provide a complete threat awareness capability.

ATK’s SHOTFINDER uses a single, 12in diameter, 1/2in high ‘pancake’ sensor mounted flush on the belly of the aircraft. The system has a nearly zero False Indication Rate (FIR) with approximately a 95% Probability of Indication (Pi). When combined with an electro-optical (EO) MWS, SHOTFINDER can refine the determination of threat angle of origin, range, and shooter geo-location. The system detects small calibre ball and tracer rounds, anti-aircraft artillery, unguided rockets, and rocket propelled grenades.
SHOTFINDER uses acoustic technology that excels at detecting small-to-large calibre shots (5.45-40mm) from ranges of 35m-3km. It also detects muzzle blasts from anti-aircraft artillery, unguided rockets and rocket propelled grenades. The sensor is less than 4lbs, easy to install and can be integrated to multiple display options.
SHOTFINDER can be used as a stand-alone Hostile Fire detection system or in conjunction with ATK’s AAR-47 or other Threat Warning Systems to provide a complete threat-awareness capability.
