    Russian Anti-Sniper Device on Display in Moscow

    Post  GarryB on Mon Mar 05, 2012 10:14 am

    The title says it all:



    The Private Defense Industry Manufacturers–2012 trade show, opened in Moscow on February 16.

    One of the items on display saved Hugo Chavez’ life.

    This sort of kit would be very useful to integrate into BTR-82 and Volk and Tigr-M optics systems.

    Sniper detection equipment that uses sound and lasers to detect optical sights would be very useful to police and paramilitary as well as military forces.

    this might helps

    Interested ,

    No more hide for snipers Smile

    I remembered british soldiers in iraq used anti-snipers based on acoustic technology to calculate the exact position of the rifle fire.

    Then a electronic voice passes on the bearing and range to the soldier allowing him to jump to safety and return fire.

    That is an acoustic gunfire source detector and only works after the shot is taken, which for sniper fire is too late.

    For general combat use it is handy for locating enemy firing positions. The Russian version can identify the calibre of the weapon used as well as the target and source locations...







    It is a vehicle mounted system normally and is used to direct return fire... it would be ideal for IFVs and for police and paramilitary use so that shooting positions can be located quickly and shooters neutralised.

    Obviously for the military this system together with a 30mm grenade launcher is the ideal combination to deal with pretty much any firing position...

    US came out with similar system called Boomerang in late 90s and used it in Bosnia peacekeeping ops. The technology is straight forward and especially for those who are in the field everyday. Why has Russia just now come up with the system or is it an upgrade of something else.

    Sorry that the system was effective or because it saved a mans life?

    Hugo Chavez is the democratically elected leader of Venezuela... I thought it was the mission of the US of A to spread peace and democracy throughout the world?

    Or is democracy a selective thing based on US interests?

    The fact that it has been revealed to the public now does not make it a "new" system.

    As stated it has been in operation for some time and has proven effective.

    I wonder if Hilary Clinton used Boomerang to evade the heavy sniper fire she encountered when she went to Bosnia... Twisted Evil

    Many bad things are done for a good cause. That’s, no doubt, one of them.

    Shocked Shocked


    Victor7 please try to control your selective thinking !!

    What has to do Boomerang (that is not of '90 years in any instance) with THIS anti-sniper system ?
    We talk of solutions on technological level (and efficiency) COMPLETELY DIFFERENT , the system presented at the show represent, at today, by far the most advanced multi-type (laser -FLIR- TV- rifle sight etc..) optical system detection available worldwide capable to pin point at the centimeter the possible position of a sniper an ATGM squad or ambushers way BEFORE them have any chance to operate .

    What has this to do with an acoustic systems (which has anyhow its role and operational niche ,in particular on APC) which have precision in the order of some hundred of meters and can operate only after that sniper has shoot ?

    If you want to know on what principle work the system you can read at pag 26 of this Borderpol journal of 2006 by Nikoai N. Slipshenko.

    http://www.worldsecurity-index.com/images/borderpol/pdf/Spring2006.pdf


    Naturally the system offered since 2006 is that allowed for export (capable anyway to save the President Chavez's life), the main improvement presented at the show is its integration with the new ORSIS T-5000 sniper rifle and its new DH 5-20×56 scope to allow the authomatic cueing toward the enemy sniper or ATGM team's position for the pre-emptive neutralization.
