    Won't do much good. Once the bullet has been fired, it is too late. The system is also far too expencive for widespread implementation. A good sniper only takes a few shots at most before moving and, just like the problems associated with locating snipers using sound, heat given off from buildings, thermals, etc can render the system useless. Besides, finding one sniper doesn't do much good when there are four more shooting at you and there is an RPG team setting up unnoticed on you're flank.

    Wouldn't be too much trouble to make it automatic. When the shot goes off, the system aims its own light artillery gun for return fire and prompts the user to shoot or not.

    Might not save the guy in the crosshairs for that shot, but it would ensure that enemy snipers never get more than one kill.

    Hello everyone,â„¢ trotting in...

    1. Technology...electronics...the break, lose power...
    2. I hope they don't try to use that in Moab :what:
    3. Another instance of trying to use technology to make up for human incompentence.
    4. "If we can make guns the last-choice weapon, we have changed the world for the better," she said.

    That tipped me off. How about this: If guns become the last resort, then it's probably too late.

    But it won't prevent the other side of crimes, with weapons other than guns...

    ...e-x-a-c-t-l-y...

    Yes I hear of many new automatic anti-sniper systems, this one seems to make sense. Especially since one can see the air displaced by a bullet with the naked eye, makes sense a thermal imager could do so as well. But what if it is windy? As well, you would need several of these to really pinpoint a location, the path would be only partially visible to most sensors.

    Radar for this exact thing exists for both larger projectiles (counter battery) and has been experimented with in millimeter wave (arond 30-40 GHz) for a number of years. It has significant problems in an urban environment wth line of site.
    A simpler method is to just use sound and time difference of arrival to locate the source. This can have problems in the urban landscape with echoes, but has been used in a number of cities on an experimantal basis.

    I'm real skeptical of this. REAL skeptical.
