U.S. Marines with the Ground Based Air Defense Program, conduct a demonstration of the Light-Marine Air Defense Integrated System (L-MADIS), on Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, June 30, 2021.
The L-MADIS is a counter-UAS electronic attack system mounted on a Polaris MRZR all-terrain vehicle. It features a 360-degree radar, a direct-fire capability, radiofrequency jammers, and electro-optic/infrared sensors. The L-MADIS is credited with downing an Iranian drone that flew in the close vicinity of the amphibious assault ship USS Boxer in July 2019.
The L-MADIS provides both kinetic and non-kinetic defeat capabilities to destroy or negate aerial threats in support of the Marine Air-Ground Task Force. L-MADIS will deploy in support of Marine Expeditionary Units and integrated onto a pair of utility task vehicles. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Tia Dufour)
The MRZR is an ultralight all-terrain 4x4 vehicle designed and manufactured by the American company Polaris Defense. Designed to be as expeditionary as the soldiers who count on them, MRZR models feature aircraft tie-downs and a folding roll cage.
The MRZR is designed for mission versatility with a 225 kg payload of rear box capacity, auxiliary power, and cargo tie-down points with seating for up to 6.
