Description: The TROPHY is an Active Protection System (APS) developed by Rafael and ELTA Systems for armored fighting vehicles stationary or on the move. The system was introduced in March 2005. It is capable of protecting armored vehicles from a wide variety of incoming anti-tank missile threats such as anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) and anti-tank rockets (ATRs or RPG). It was designed for integration onto heavy, medium and lightweight platforms.
The TROPHY protection system rapidly detects, tracks, classifies, determines the optimal interception point and finally neutralizes the threat away form the armored vehicle. Neutralization of the threat can be done using a countermeasure. Thus, armored fighting vehicles protected by TROPHY get increased survivability. The protection system itself consists of a search radar with four flat-panel antennas and several sensors located all together around the armored vehicle. This way the system provides full hemispherical coverage.
In addition, the TROPHY has been certificated for operation against short range threats, operation in urban terrain area, full performance in all weather conditions, operation against multiple simultaneous threats, and easy integration in many platforms. The system also features reduced weight to be integrated into lightweight vehicle without endangering its performance.
