AK47-Locating ‘Smart Dust’ Helmets

According to Vanderbilt University’s “Exploration” magazine, researchers at the Institute for Software Integrated Systems (ISIS) have developed a gunshot-locator net. By networking a helmet-mounted acoustic sensor system among a team of Soldiers, the system will correlate data collected by a larger number of sensors. The system is designed to not only provide the location of the shooter but also the type of projectile.

Read an interesting synopsis of the work from “Exploration” magazine. A paper from the team is also available here.
