Gunfire detector

The Vehicle Acoustic Area Protection System (VAAPS) by Austrade is designed to provide an ability to detect gunfire, classify the weapon by type, and localize the origin of the attacker.

Tests have proven the ability of the system to operate successfully in a reverberant environment and when multiple shooters fire simultaneously. The VAAPS is engineered to provide continuous, 360-degree passive surveillance of the vehicle’s vicinity and provide detection and classification of gunshots in real time to an operator.
