  SPiDR Hostile Fire Detection (HFD) radar delivers stealthy, speed-of-light detection of incoming fire
Syntonics’ Staring Projectile Detection Radar (SPiDR) uses stealthy spread-spectrum radar to detect incoming and near-miss projectiles ranging from slow RPGs to fast rifle bullets. Staring spread-spectrum radar are lightweight, elegantly simple, intrinsically low cost/low power devices that use low probability-of-detection (LPD) radio frequency signals to detect and range on objects. Using LPD signals means the radar can operate without an electronic signature at tactical ranges.

9-Beam Field of ViewSPiDR immediately annunciates detected projectiles with a very high probability of detection and very low probability of false alarm. The system provides bearing and range to the shooter(s) via a variety of human and machine interfaces. SPiDR can:

  • Detect incoming projectiles with velocities ranging from ~350 fps (an RPG), up to ~4400 fps (the fastest rifle bullet). This velocity range is adjustable in software.
  • Electronically trigger countermeasures and/or alarms.
  • Ignore outgoing projectiles (i.e., return fire), noise, sunshine, bright lights, all sonic effects, and airborne objects such as other aircraft, rocks and dust.
  • Operate stealthily thanks to its use of spread spectrum technology.
sensorSPiDR’s detection and ranging technique is insensitive to user motion, platform vibration, or vehicle maneuvering. Its radar modules are small and can be mechanically integrated in a variety of ways including into a soldier’s helmet, as conformal patches on a helicopter, or as a single multi-sided squat pyramid on a vehicle.
