As part of the NATO SET-093 experiment, Defence R&D Canada - Valcartier collected acoustic signatures using two Ferret systems. The new set of data was used to assess the performance of Ferret not only for the detection of small arms fire but also to determine whether weapons other than small arms could trigger the system and create false alarms. Ferret is an acoustic signal processing system that detects, recognizes and localizes the source and direction of small arms fire. New detection algorithms have been developed at DRDC Valcartier and incorporated into a recent software upgrade of the system. This paper presents an overview of the improvements, the reasons behind those changes and the performance of Ferret when exposed to the new set of data. The author also proposes metrics for future data collection that would allow a better evaluation of performance.
