The German Defence Company Rheinmettal Defence an expert in air defence weapon systems presents the air defence system Oerlikon Skyshield MOOTW/C-RAM at AUSA 2011. The system is designed to defend high-value civilian or military assets from RAM attacks, whether in high-intensity combat scenarios or in “military operations other than war” (MOOTW). The system can also be used for protecting critical infrastructure or targets with a high symbolic value from terrorists and insurgents employing unorthodox tactics.
