The technology being developed at the Institute of Software Integrated Systems, part of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, promises to give soldiers the ability to identify not only the three-dimensional location of the sniper, but also the caliber and type of weapon he is shooting. If the system detects both the muzzle blast and the shock wave front the bullet, it can provide both the direction and distance of the sniper. The technology has been tested successfully at the Army's Aberdeen Test Center.
