Active Protection from APG's Tested
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Active Protection from APG's Tested

Not necessarily New News, but an update, as released in a "Defense Daily"
Article.

TROPHY ACTIVE PROTECTION SYSTEM SUCCESSFUL IN FIRST U.S. TESTS - The faces of more than 100 soldiers and sailors killed by rocket propelled grenades (RPGs) in Iraq over the course of a year passed by on the large screen in the auditorium here at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division.
More than 140 U.S. and foreign visitors sat silent before learning more about the near-term system that can defeat the cheap and available RPGs--the Trophy Active Protection System (APS), mounted on a Stryker combat vehicle before a live-fire test.
The visitors viewed the live-fire demonstration on screens in a tent near the range, as the Trophy system successfully detected, tracked and broke apart an inert incoming RPG while the Stryker was accelerating.
"The system worked just like it was supposed to work," defeating a threatening RPG, watching and ignoring an RPG that would not enter the vehicle's protected zone, Robert Dibble, FSEP project lead at Dahlgren, said after the test.
The Office of the Secretary of Defense's Office of Force Transformation (OFT) and the Joint Rapid Acquisition Cell (JRAC) sponsored the March 30 tests.
Some two weeks of tests here are to gather data and certify comprehensive experiments conducted by the Israel Defense Forces in Israel in late February.
