Northrop Grumman Showcases APS for The US Army January 30, 2019

 

Northrop Grumman Corporation demonstrated advanced Vehicle Active Protection System (APS) technologies against Anti-Tank Guided Munitions during the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research Development Engineering Centre (TARDEC) sponsored Soft-kill Rodeo in Huntsville on Oct. 5-31

Using its Passive Infrared Cueing Sensors system, Northrop Grumman say the system successfully generated threat warning of inbound ATGMs and provided a cue for the soft kill countermeasure system (SKCM).

“The Northrop Grumman SKCM system, known as the Multifunction Electro-Optical System (MEOS), successfully countered the ATGM and defeated it in real-time.

The MEOS identified and countered all types of threats fired at its APS system, making this the fourth consecutive time the system has performed well in field tests to defeat threats.”
