  As shown in FIG. 2, the teammate device 3 mainly includes a teammate antenna 31, a teammate reception unit 32, a teammate transmission unit (a teammate signal transmission unit) 33, and a teammate calculation processing unit 34. The ally receiving unit 32 is a receiver that receives a signal from the outside via the ally antenna 31, and the ally transmitting unit 33 is a transmitter that transmits a predetermined ally signal to the outside via the ally antenna 31. Further, the ally calculation processing unit 34 analyzes the signal received by the ally receiving unit 32 or controls the ally transmitting unit 33 to transmit the ally signal.

  Specifically, when the ally receiving processing unit 34 determines that the first gun signal (described later) from the gun control device 2 has been received by the ally receiving processing unit 32, the ally processing processing unit 34 sends a transmission command to the ally transmitting unit 33. And the ally signal is transmitted from the ally transmitting unit 33. Here, the ally antenna 31 is configured or provided in plural so that the first gun signal transmitted toward any of the body of the ally M can be reliably received. Such an ally device 3 can be mounted and equipped on a bulletproof vest or a helmet of the ally M.

  As shown in FIG. 3, the user device 4 mainly includes a user antenna 41, a user reception unit 42, a user transmission unit (user signal transmission means) 43, a user calculation processing unit 44, It has. The user receiving unit 42 is a receiver that receives a signal from the outside via the user antenna 41, and the user transmitting unit 43 transmits a predetermined user signal to the outside via the user antenna 41. It is a transmitter. In addition, the user calculation processing unit 44 analyzes the signal received by the user receiving unit 42 or controls the user transmitting unit 43 to transmit a user signal.

  Specifically, when the user calculation processing unit 44 determines that the user receiving unit 42 has received a second gun signal to be described later from the gun control device 2, the user calculation processing unit 44 sends the user transmission unit to the user transmission unit. A transmission command is transmitted to 43 and a user signal is transmitted from the user transmission unit 43. Here, the user antenna 41 is configured or provided in a plurality so as to reliably receive the second gun signal transmitted toward the user U side (the repulsion side of the gun 100). . Such a user device 4 can be freely mounted and equipped on the ally M's bulletproof vest or helmet.

  As shown in FIG. 4, the gun control device 2 mainly includes gun antennas 21 and 25, gun receivers 22 and 26, gun transmitters 23 and 27, gun calculation processors 24 and 28, and a control unit ( Control means) 29 and a system switch (not shown).

  The first gun antenna 21 is configured and arranged to transmit a signal in the same direction as the firing direction of the gun 100 (the direction in which the gun 100 is directed), and to receive a signal from a direction opposite to the firing direction. Has been. The first gun receiving unit (friend signal receiving means) 22 is a receiver that receives a signal from the outside, in particular, a friend signal from the ally device 3 via the first gun antenna 21, and transmits the first gun. The unit 23 is a transmitter that transmits a predetermined first gun signal to the outside via the first gun antenna 21.

  The first gun calculation processing unit 24 analyzes the signal received by the first gun receiving unit 22 or controls the first gun transmitting unit 23 to transmit the first gun signal. . Further, the control unit 29 is connected to a trigger (trigger) of the gun 100 and controls whether or not the gun 100 can fire (whether or not the trigger can move) according to a command from the first gun calculation processing unit 24. .

  Specifically, in a state where the system switch is turned on, the first gun signal is always transmitted in the firing direction of the gun 100 from the first gun transmission unit 23 via the first gun antenna 21. When the first gun calculation processing unit 24 determines that the first gun receiving unit 22 has received the teammate signal from the ally device 3, the first gun calculation processing unit 24 sends a firing restriction command to the control unit 29. In response to this, the control unit 29 restricts the firing of the gun 100 (locks the trigger). That is, when the first gun signal is transmitted by pointing the gun 100 toward the ally M, the first gun signal is received by the ally device 3 and the ally signal is transmitted / returned. Therefore, when this ally signal is received, The firing of the gun 100 is restricted. As described above, in this embodiment, the gun 100 is directed toward the ally M, the first gun signal is transmitted, and the ally signal is received from the ally device 3 in this state, whereby the gun 100 is directed toward the ally M. And the friend signal can be received.

  On the other hand, when the gun 100 is pointed at the enemy T that is not equipped with the ally device 3, the ally signal is not transmitted from the enemy T side even if the first gun signal is transmitted. Therefore, a firing permission command is transmitted from the first gun calculation processing unit 24 to the control unit 29, and in response to this, the control unit 29 enables the gun 100 to fire (unlocks). Such firing control of the gun 100 is repeatedly performed at all times.

  The second gun antenna 25 is configured and arranged to transmit a signal toward the user U side (rebound gun side) and receive a signal from the user U side. The second gun receiving unit (user signal receiving means) 26 is a receiver that receives a signal from the outside, particularly a user signal from the user device 4, via the second gun antenna 25, The gun transmitter 27 is a transmitter that transmits a predetermined second gun signal to the outside via the second gun antenna 25.

  The second gun calculation processing unit 28 analyzes the signal received by the second gun receiving unit 26 or controls the second gun transmitting unit 27 to transmit the second gun signal. . The control unit 29 controls whether or not the gun 100 can be fired in accordance with a command from the second gun calculation processing unit 28.

  Specifically, in a state where the system switch is turned on, the second gun signal is always transmitted from the second gun transmission unit 27 to the user U side via the second gun antenna 25. When the second gun calculation processing unit 28 determines that the user signal from the user device 4 is received by the second gun receiving unit 26, the second gun calculation processing unit 28 fires at the control unit 29. Upon receiving the permission command, the control unit 29 enables the gun 100 to fire. That is, when the second gun signal is transmitted to the user U equipped with the user device 4 and holding the gun 100, the user device 4 receives the second gun signal and transmits the user signal. Since this is a reply, the gun 100 is allowed to fire when this user signal is received. Thus, in this embodiment, the user U equipped with the user device 4 has the gun 100 so that the user signal can be received.

  On the other hand, when the enemy T or the like not equipped with the user device 4 has the gun 100, the user signal is not transmitted from the enemy T side even if the second gun signal is transmitted. For this reason, the firing control command is transmitted from the second gun calculation processing unit 28 to the control unit 29, and in response to this, the control unit 29 controls the firing of the gun 100. Such firing control of the gun 100 is repeatedly performed at all times. When the system switch is turned off, a firing restriction command is transmitted from the second gun calculation processing unit 28 to the control unit 29, and in response thereto, the control unit 29 restricts the firing of the gun 100.

  Next, the operation of the gun control system 1 having such a configuration and the gun control method by the gun control system 1 will be described.

  First, as shown in FIG. 5, when the system switch is in the off state (in the case of “N” in step S1), the firing of the gun 100 is restricted as described above (step S2), and the system switch is in the on state (step S1). In the case of “Y”), it is determined whether or not the person who has the gun 100 is the user U (friend) equipped with the user device 4 (step S3). That is, as described above, when the second gun signal is transmitted from the gun control device 2 toward the person holding the gun 100 and the gun control device 2 does not receive the user signal, the gun control device 2 holds the gun 100. Is determined not to be the user U (friend) equipped with the user device 4 (“N” in step S3), and the firing of the gun 100 is restricted (step S4).

  On the other hand, when the gun control device 2 receives the user signal, it is determined that the person who has the gun 100 is the user U (friend) equipped with the user device 4 (in step S3, “ Y ”), and it is determined whether or not the target is an ally M (step S5). That is, as described above, when the first gun signal is transmitted from the gun control device 2 in the firing direction of the gun 100 and the gun control device 2 receives the ally signal, the target is determined to be the ally M. ("Y" in step S5), and firing of the gun 100 is restricted (step S4). On the other hand, when the gun control device 2 does not receive the teammate signal, the target is determined to be the enemy T instead of the teammate M (“N” in step S5), and the gun 100 can be fired (step S6). .

  And control of whether or not the gun 100 can be fired is always performed continuously. That is, when the target changes from the enemy T to the ally M, the gun control device 2 receives the ally signal and the firing of the gun 100 is restricted, and when the target changes from the ally M to the enemy T, the gun control device 2 Is not received, the gun 100 can be fired. Further, when the enemy T tries to use the gun 100, the gun control device 2 does not receive the user signal, so that the firing of the gun 100 is restricted, and the user U equipped with the user device 4 uses the gun 100. When trying to use, the gun control device 2 receives the user signal, so that the gun 100 can be fired.

  Thus, according to this gun control system 1, when the gun 100 is pointed at the ally M equipped with the ally device 3, the gun control device 2 regulates the firing of the rifle 100. It is possible to prevent (defeat) more appropriately and reliably. In other words, without depending on the identification / determination by the user U of the gun 100, the gun 100 is automatically restricted from firing when the gun 100 is pointed at the ally M. Therefore, the determination is incorrect or takes time. Without firing, it becomes possible to more appropriately and reliably prevent the fire on the ally M. Further, since the ally signal is only transmitted wirelessly from the ally device 3, there is no possibility that the enemy T knows the location / position of the ally M.

  In addition, since only the user U (an ally) equipped with the user device 4 can fire the gun 100, the unauthorized use / firing of the gun 100 by a person who does not equip the user device 4 (such as the enemy M). It becomes possible to protect the friend T. Thus, since the ally who is the user U equipped with the user device 4 can shoot only when trying to shoot the enemy T, the safety of the ally T can be improved even in a complicated engagement state. It becomes possible to raise.

  Although the embodiment of the present invention has been described above, the specific configuration is not limited to the above embodiment, and even if there is a design change or the like without departing from the gist of the present invention, Included in the invention. For example, in the above-described embodiment, when the gun 100 is directed to the ally M by transmitting the first gun signal toward the ally M and receiving the ally signal from the ally device 3 in this state, The signal can be received, but may be as follows. That is, when a friend signal is always transmitted from the friend device 3 and the gun 100 is pointed at the friend M, the first gun antenna 21 and the first gun receiver 22 can receive the friend signal (the gun 100 is not pointed at the friend M). May not be able to receive a friend signal).

  Moreover, although the friend apparatus 3 and the user apparatus 4 are set as different apparatuses, you may comprise with an equivalent apparatus. That is, the friend T and the user U are equipped with the same device, and the same signal (a friend signal, a user signal) is transmitted from this device. In the gun control device 2, when this signal is received from the user U side (reverse firing side), it is possible to fire as the user signal is received, and this signal is sent from the ally T side (fired side). When it is received, firing may be restricted on the assumption that an ally signal has been received.
