How Cool is That?
The development of future combat systems has always intrigued me. Here's one that's gonna get a lot of play in the future I think:
"A company called Artis, LLC has developed an anti-RPG (Rocket-Propelled Grenade) ground vehicle defense system called the Iron Curtain Active Protection System (APS) that integrates C-band radar, a distributed optical sensor, and a ring of ballistic countermeasures to neutralize incoming RPGs."
This system detonates the RPG warhead prior to impact. Sounds more promising than explosive reactive armor.
