A radar-based solution to detect and locate hostile small arms fire
HFL-CS is a radar-based solution that provides automatic hostile fire detection and localization of the source of small arms fire, from 5.56mm caliber up to rocket propelled grenades. It calculates a projectile’s trajectory and in less than 3 seconds is able to locate the direction and range of the point of origin, as well as classify the type of threat by its caliber.
As HFL-CS is radar based, it overcomes some of the limitations of alternative acoustic solutions. It is unaffected by high background noise or acoustic echoes in urban environments and can be operated at night and in low visibility conditions such as smoke, dust, rain and fog.
HFL-CS is a modular system and can be configured to provide safety and protection in a fixed location or on the move mounted on a vehicle. It can also be integrated with an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV).

IDS has developed HFL-CS, a solution based on X-band radar technology to provide automatic detection and localization of the source of hostile small arms fire.
HFL-CS – TECHNICAL SHEET
- Non-rotating AESA (Active Electronically Scanned Array) radar
- Interoperable with common ISTAR systems and onboard equipment
- Quick response time (<3 sec from threat detection to source location)
- Compact and mobile, can be installed in a fixed location or mounted on a vehicle or UGV for tactical applications
- Measures radial speed, azimuth, elevation and range
- Estimates a projectile’s trajectory
- Estimates the source of fire
- Automatic threat classification (bullet, RPG)
- Detects both subsonic and supersonic ballistic projectiles
- Performance doesn’t degrade in case of subsonic bullets
