MoD selects Raytheon shooter-detection system

Raytheon BBN Technologies’s Boomerang Warrior-X wearable shooter-detection system has been selected by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) for field trials related to urgent operational requirements.

This follows an assessment by the MoD’s defence science and technology laboratory that included Boomerang Warrior-X and several other wearable shooter-detection systems, in which Boomerang was found to be the most effective.
