DRS Technologies completed tests with LAV-III armoured fitted with Active Protection System Trophy
DRS Technologies, Inc., a Finmeccanica Company announced that, in cooperation with General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS), it has successfully completed a ten-month combat vehicle integration and live fire testing program featuring Trophy Active Protection technology.
LAV-III 8x8 armoured vehicle fitted with Rophy Active Protection System
part of its strategic initiative to demonstrate next generation anti-armor
survivability technologies for its combat vehicle fleets, and following
an international tender process, GDLS chose the combat-proven Trophy Active
Protection System for its full-scale integration and testing program on
a General Dynamics LAV III armored vehicle.
Trophy has already been fielded in large numbers to tank units of the Israel Defense Forces and has proven to save lives in several documented combat engagements. Capable of defeating the full spectrum of direct fire, anti-armor rockets, missiles, and tank-fired high-explosive rounds, the system rapidly detects and tracks an incoming threat, classifies it, computes the optimal intercept point in space, and, if necessary, neutralizes it away from the platform. Additionally, the system reduces the probability of collateral injury in the vehicle vicinity to below one percent.
Trophy also calculates the location of the shooter, alerts the crew for immediate action, and reports the engagement to the battle management network for situational awareness across the formation.
