Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has unveiled a gunfire detection system to counter small arms, snipers, machine guns, and rocket-propelled grenades.
The “Othello-P” features artificial intelligence processing and the fusion of extended short-wave infrared electro-optics and acoustics sensors to provide immediate and precise gunfire detection and geo-location.
The system can be installed on both stationary platforms and moving vehicles such as “all-terrain vehicles, armored fighting vehicles, main battle tanks, and autonomous unmanned platforms.”
The company has also developed a portable version of the system for infantry and special forces operations.
The Othello-P’s “unique passive solution with 360-degree coverage” enables “very short and accurate sensor-to-shooter loop closing,” the company stated.
