In collaboration with the French-German Research Institute ISL (Institut Saint Louis), the French company Sagem SA (of SAFRAN group) has developed a compact and lightweight gunshot detection system.
The system called DELOC can be fitted on vehicle based remotely controlled weapon station, armoured vehicle, fixed site or on the soldier helmet.
The data received by the antenna is featured is on a console inside the vehicle or on the soldier portable observation terminal.
DELOC has been trialed integrated on Sagem SA and Panhard General Defense WASP (Weapon under Armor for Self-Protection) remotely controlled weapon station which has been installed on a Panhard General Defense PVP (Petit Véhicule Protégé) 4×4 light armoured vehicle.
DELOC can help as well to establish a tactical view of the field scenario when linked to a tactical battle management system like the French Army (Armée de Terre) SITEL (Système d’Information Terminal Elémentaire) system.
