EUROSATORY 2018, June 11-15, Paris, Israel Pavilion, Hall 6, Stand DC 707 – -( SafeShoot – a company dedicated to finding a solution to friendly fire incidents in hunting, law enforcement, homeland security, and military scenarios – introduces Green Shield, a unique solution for the prevention of friendly fire incidents.

According to Gabi Davidson, VP Marketing of SafeShoot, “Modern warfare, much of which takes place in densely populated areas, has led to an increase in friendly fire incidents among many armies around the world. To meet this challenge, we have developed GreenShield, which allows an additional layer of safety, operational continuity and improved coordination among friendly forces.”

“The solution also enables a short sensor-to-shooter cycle, an easier and faster decision-making process, closer support fire, and better situational awareness.”

SafeShoot offers two types of devices: the Shooter Device and the Defender Device.

  • The Shooter Device is applicable for the shooting elements within the forces including: heavy direct fire weapons (tanks or RWS), UAVs, attack helicopters, light infantry weapons, and relevant HLS weapons (pistols, etc.).
  • The Defender Device is designed for non-shooting elements such as support units, search dogs, instructors, medical aid and evacuation personnel.

The system detects the spatial position and barrel direction of all SafeShoot devices (Shooter and/or Defender). It immediately and automatically alerts the shooter when there is a high risk of executing friendly fire – even when there is no line-of-sight and under varying weather conditions, day or night. The system enables a dynamic wireless network and exchange of online data between the devices in the arena.

Mr. Davidson added, “We believe that, with the help of our products, which enable the identification of own forces in the field, we can significantly reduce the number of casualties caused by friendly fire.”

It’s not a replacement, as the article stated it’s just another layer. As long as it remains one in a list of layers that is used and doesn’t become something that is solely relied on its probably going to have an important place, especially as miniaturization further shrinks the size.


Good idea but it is just something else to add to the weapon, Make with Lazer and lights to replace some items.
The term “Ounces=pounds=PAIN” take some ounces away.


Sound good, until the enemy has them and uses them to confuse the troops into thinking they are allies.


Yes, or to actually target our troops (squeeze the trigger when you get the warning).


I certainly agree that some sort of IFF encryption would be needed to deal with that.
