WOW, it detects SOUND. A subsonic round fired with a supressor does not make any sound, other than the firing pin hitting the primer(oops I forgot the SPLAT when it hits the target). The .45 is already subsonic and the .308 is supersonic but can be reloaded to be subsonic. The .223 is supersonic but it isn't worth the waste of time to slow it down to subsonic since the .223 round isn't big enough to make a difference if it is slowed down. Check out the web site www.coastalgun.com and look at the hear them section for the 762 demo of the subsonic (click). Worth checking into.

Scariest thing I've seen yet, but you have to admit, it is fascinating technology.

For every piece of electronic technonlgy or thingamajig out there, you can find something to counter it. The fact remains that soldiers(and/or cops)have to operate it.
These humans have to eat, sleep shower,etc. They are visible while they are operating these systems. Visiblity means vulnerability. Think about it and then plan accordingly.

Special counter-measures increase BigArmy system complexity, logistical "weight" and length of tail. No doubt, these system do work when installed and used within their design parameters, and against a technologically unsophisticated enemy are probably useful. For defending a fixed position (a fools' errand), sniper detector units are another tool. Against a same-tech enemy, it zeros out with weight and cost.

If this system is deployed widely, expect "sniping" to go remote-controlled with even more-deadly EFP's (imho, the cheapest force-multiplier available in the world to ambush/trap designers) along with cheap "spoof shooters" that make a flash/noise like a man with a scoped rifle.

This story dos not include what is likely classified info about the results of a fully-informed OpFor using counter-counter-measures.

All of this stuff will not matter when the "terr's" figure out how to make and operate small disposable arm-launched weapon-platform aircraft, let alone nano-tech self-propelled weapons.

Cheers.

In a gorilla war against regular troops one man a sharpshooter (working with a team) takes out the EARS of the enemy and then the entire team can engage in the action.
Taking out the officers and sergeant first.
A three to seven man team could be very efective against these light forces.

Yeah, that's what grunts want: A couple more pounds of gear and more buttons to push.

I was at an IED expo and they had an exhibitor with a Boom maker. It was a propane fired bomb simulator that was controlled by remote control - used for training. It looked to me like a glorified grackle blaster that you can buy on the internet.

Reminds me of a story from WW2 that I read a while back:

Josif Tito was, before becoming the dictator of Yugoslavia, the leader of Yugoslavia's partisans against the Germans. A reporter asked him, "How is it that your partisans, armed with their old rifles, can take on the Germans and their new panzers?" Tito responded, "When the Germans get out of their new panzers to take a piss, my partisans will shoot them with their old rifles."

IOW, everyone and every system has weaknesses. No one is superman - don't get demoralized and defeat yourself by getting intimidated with an image. Use yer noggin, find those weaknesses and exploit them.

It seems to me that most of the folks here have got this new-fangled stuff pretty well covered. Nice work, folks!
