Gunshot Location Integrated with ATAK

Raytheon announced that they have integrated their Boomerang gunshot detection sensor with ATAK.

Raytheon Intelligence & Space, a Raytheon Technologies business (NYSE: RTX), has integrated its Boomerang Warrior-X Dismounted Soldier Gunshot Detection System with the Android Team Awareness Kit to enhance battlefield management and situational awareness for ATAK users. 

Brad Tousley, president, Raytheon BBN Technologies, said, “This integration provides a game-changing threat assessment capability for U.S. and allied forces that operate ATAK.” For a decade, Boomerang has provided a critical combat capability by notifying users of the point of origin of incoming hostile fire. Now we are entering an era where Boomerang sensors can not only assist in providing a bubble of protection to individual users, but can also transmit the precise location of enemy shooters to all friendly forces on the Team Awareness Kit network.”
