Vehicle Based Acoustic Multi-Mission Sensor (V-AMMS) is a gunshot detection and localisation system, based on the worldwide unique and extremely small Acoustic Vector Sensor (AVS) technology developed by Microflown AVISA. V-AMMS has been Combat Proven, after it was fielded with the Dutch Armed Forces, performing reliable and outstanding results..
V-AMMS is installed on vehicles and provides the crew with a true 360° situational awareness. It locates fire positions and displays the direction and distance to the hostile shooters on an easy to use ruggedised tablet.
The V-AMMS technology is based on measuring the directional acoustic particle velocity. This unique technology allows outstanding results on directional accuracy of 1.5 degrees. This combined with its low SWaP characteristics makes it a valuable addition to any intended or existing sensor suite on board of the manned or unmanned vehicle.
In comparison to traditional microphone based arrays, the V-AMMS has two main advantages: Firstly, it is extremely small and compact due to Microflown’s unique and patented sensor technology. It therefore does not limit the 360 degree capability of RWS and EO systems. Secondly, users of traditional gunshot localisation systems experienced numerous fail alarms showing random directions in real mission use such as in Afghanistan, a limitation the V-AMMS does not have.
Unlike other acoustic systems in the marketplace, V-AMMS measures the direction of the hostile shooter and does not predict it.
The V-AMMS can be installed on any wheeled vehicle, including light armoured vehicles and successfully locates shooters while driving with up to 80 km/h in rough terrain conditions. V-AMMS masters true multi-shooting scenarios while being targeted directly. It can also detect shots and localise the shooter position when the bullet does not directly pass the vehicle. Ranges up to 1500m and miss distances up to 200m can be achieved.
The shooter location provided by a V-AMMS can be used stand alone or with data fusion in a sensor suite, cueing a RWS, radars, EO systems towards the shooter position that the V-AMMS has identified. Grid coordinates of the hostile shooter position can be handed over to the battlefield management system, if available.
