PILAR is a system that localises, precisely and in real time, shots fired by small and medium calibre weapons, based on the sound waves generated by the shot. 

This version is designed for the protection of heavy and light armoured vehicles, as well as police armoured vehicles. It is available as a tetrahedral acoustic array mounted on the vehicle roof. It also includes a display that precisely indicates the shot origin, as well as the shooter’s GPS coordinates. 

Combat Proven: today, this system has been fitted on several hundred vehicles of the French Army and users on various theatres of operations (Afghanistan, Central African Republic, etc.) have been very satisfied.
