U.S. Army Research Laboratory Awards Contract to Logos Technologies

August 4, 2014

Logos Technologies has secured a $9.7 million contract by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory to further develop and deploy technology that will detect and locate hostile gunfire and explosive denotations.

In a release, the Company noted that the Optical Gunfire, Rockets and Explosive Flash Detection system uses high-speed cameras to capture the signature of a fired weapon or detonation and provide precise source coordinates to ground troops. OGRE is coupled with an existing acoustic sensor developed by the Army's Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center.

The Serenity system will be integrated with Logos Technologies' aerostat-based Kestrel sensor system, allowing operators to not only see attacks as they happen, but also access DVR-like forensic playback when necessary.
