Description: The Shtora-1 is a passive protection system intended against laser-guided high precision anti-tank missiles and artillery rounds like US Army's Copperhead. The system also provides protection against semi-automatic laser-guided missiles. The turret-mounted Shtora-1 passive defense system consists of two detection sensors of anti-tank missile laser guidance radiation, one detection sensor of laser rangefinder radiation, a wind sensor, four infrared (IR) spotlights and twelve smoke grenade launchers. The purpose of this arrangement is to detect the laser radiation and depending on the wind direction launch the smoke countermeasures to disable the laser beam to focus on its intended target. The IR spotlights are aimed at jamming infrared cameras. The Russian Army's BMP-3M armored infantry fighting vehicle is fitted with Arena-E active defense system and Shtora-1 passive defense system.
