Rafael Suvivability Systems with active armour solution Trophy family:
Trophy is a situational awareness and Active Protection Hard Kill (HK) System (APS) which is available in two main configurations: HV-MV (Heavy and Medium Armored Vehicle) and LV (Light Armored Vehicle). Both configurations dramatically boost the force’s survivability, and provide a vital add-on capability for the maneuvering combat teams.
Trophy HV-MV neutralizes all types of Chemical Energy (CE) threats in flight, addressing them in four major stages: Threat detection, threat tracking, Hard Kill (HK) countermeasure (Multiple Explosive Formed Penetrators - MEFP) activation, and threat neutralization. Only those threats which are about to hit are actioned, thereby conserving on ammunition and possible collateral damage.
Trophy-LV eliminates all RPG threats which are about to hit the vehicle. First, it acquires the threat, then charges the threatened side of the vehicle, and literally beheads the rocket before it has a chance to initiate or make impact.
Trophy-HV is serially-produced, tested and qualified, forming an integral part of the Merkava MkIV Main Battle Tank (MBT). Introduced operationally by the IDF in August 2009, Trophy-HV was deployed and battle-proven in combat along Israel’s borders.
Rafael Spike-LR Precision Missile Systems for Infantry, Special Forces and Combat Vehicles
Family of Multi-Purpose, Tactical Missiles with the Spike Family:
The members of Rafael's 4th generation multi-purpose missile family share many of the same features that combine to meet the challenge presented by enemy forces. They have sophisticated electro-optic CCD / IIR sensors for operation during the day, at night and in adverse weather conditions. Their lofted trajectories enable the warhead to hit the target at its most vulnerable part with pinpoint precision.
All of the Spike Family members have a low Life Cycle Cost, due to high commonality between members, high reliability, ease of use and a Built-in-Test. Full Integrated Logistic Support package (ILS) is available for the Spike Family.
