CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTES (BNS): Raytheon’s BBN Technologies' Boomerang Warrior-X wearable shooter-detection system has been selected by the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (MOD) for field trials related to urgent operational requirements.

The selection follows an assessment by the MOD's Defence Science and Technology Laboratory that included Boomerang Warrior-X and several other wearable shooter-detection systems.

The study found that Boomerang Warrior-X was the most effective system tested. Now Boomerang Warrior-X will be assessed in theater conditions.

"Individual dismounted soldiers are the most vulnerable," said Mark Sherman, general manager, Boomerang, Raytheon BBN Technologies.

"Sending Boomerang Warrior-X to the field will provide UK troops with the very best protection available," he said.
