Vehicle Listening Device
Vehicle Listening Device (VLD) is a vehicle-mounted parabolic
system that allows rapid situation assessments during traffic
stops. A subtle exterior parabolic listening device can be focused
on a stopped vehicle’s back window for a quick officer
threat assessment, alerting the officers to threats or plans
being made by the suspects or allows them to hear the chambering
of a bullet. The deployed parab has a range of xxx feet, or
a normal traffic stop distance.
The VLD can be mounted on patrol vehicles or motorcycles
and will only be activated when the patrol unit is stopped
with its emergency lights on. The dash- or tank-mounted control
unit has 180-degree rotational controls, green-beam laser
directional targeting, as well as user-controlled gain and
presets. There is an output to existing vehicle video sync
and speakers, providing the ability to record sight and sound,
or just listen via headphones or speakers.
Like other SOS parabolic units, the VLD is weather and temperature
resistant and will isolate specific, predetermined target
sounds. Optional sound signatures can be added to the library
of basic recognizable threat sounds, such as chambering rounds
or screeching tires. For additional officer safety, VLF can
be programmed to prompt a response to central command when
a specific sound is detected, such as a shout for help or
