  • Hearing protection, audio communication and situational awareness:
    • Acoustic protectors (earplugs, earmuffs, etc.)
    • Auditory hazard, damage risk assessment, noise regulation
    • Noise control and audio communication (enhanced active personal protection devices)
    • Enhanced hearing, 3D Audio Display, augmented and virtual hearing
  • Mechanisms of blast injuries and related protective equipment
  • Acoustic detection of threats
    • Acoustic sensors for UAV detection, counter-sniping and sensor networks
    • Performance of acoustic systems for detection and localization, taking into consideration the influence of environmental conditions (acoustic propagation)
    • National or international actions in these fields (DGA, BAAINBw, EDA, NATO, etc.)
