In the asymmetric conflicts of our days, ambushes and sniper attacks are common. Fast and reliable localization of a shooter enables soldiers and civilian security staff to seek appropriate shelter and to respond to the threat. However, in many scenarios the clutter of buildings, cars and civilians can make the localization difficult. Several technologies, each with specific advantages and drawbacks, have been developed to tackle this problem. It will be shown that the detection of a muzzle flash works well in the shortwave infrared spectral range and that a combination of single element detectors and simple optics in an appropriate configuration has the potential to be a possible solution.
