Military technology has already contributed – for better or worse – a great deal to our everyday lifestyle, but now we soon may see the Ultimate Supra-Surface Fish Finder.
I have little doubt that the Helicopter Alert and Threat Termination
(HALTT) gunshot location system has a fishier application.
By using a series of acoustic sensors to detect the “distinct acoustic signature” of a gunshot, the Helicopter Alert and Threat Termination system is able to pinpoint the position of the shooter. In the field, this would keep troops better protected against small arms fire.
A simple tweak to detect the ‘distinct acoustic signature’ of fish sipping in the film or crashing through the water’s surface, the sure-to-soon-to-be developed Fish Alert and Rapid Tracking (FART) system’s acoustic sensors could allow any fisherman, regardless of hearing or sight impairment, to pinpoint the position of their quarry.
Gentlemen, hold on to your wallets.
