QNA EARS up the Indian market
QinetiQ North America (QNA) has extended its partnership with Bhukhanvala Industries to market the EARS gunshot localisation product line in the Indian market, the company announced on 2 May.
EARS alerts the user instantly to the source of incoming fire and provides the situational awareness needed to enable quick and accurate response.
Products covered in the agreement include the EARS Shoulder-Worn Acoustic Targeting System (SWATS), EARS Fixed Site System (FSS) and EARS Vehicle Mounted System (VMS).
EARS SWATS provides soldiers situational awareness to respond quickly to small arms attacks. Using the EARS sensor mounted on the shoulder, SWATS provides hands-free alert to the origin of incoming fire. By detecting and locating hostile shooters, SWATS allows soldiers to take cover or respond to threats.
The FSS adapts the EARS sensor for stationary perimeter-protection applications. The FSS kit includes a tripod, tripod mount adaptor and a global AC/DC power adaptor. The FSS provides perimeter monitoring and early detection and response against attacks on camps, both large and small.
The EARS VMS kit alerts vehicle crews to incoming fire. Items included in the VMS kit are a ruggedised tablet display, mounting hardware and cabling for installation on different vehicle platforms, which together provide enhanced capability for vehicle convoys to respond to ambush situations.
