Locating a shooter from the first shot via cellphone

Militaries have worked hard to develop technologies that simultaneously protect soldiers’ hearing and aid in battlefield communication. However, these don’t help if a soldier takes it off to assess the location of incoming gunfire. A French researcher has developed a proof of concept that uses the microphones in a TCAPS system to capture a shooter’s acoustic information and transmit this to a soldier’s smartphone to display shooter location in real time.
