Category: Defence Industry


Haifa, March 8, 2005 - RAFAEL Armament Development Authority Ltd., as prime contractor and ELTA Systems Group as part of the team, introduce the TROPHY Active Protection System (APS) for Armored Fighting Vehicles (AFV).

The TROPHY is a unique and advanced system that offers a solution for a variety of anti-tank missile threats. The TROPHY system rapidly detects and tracks the anti-tank missile threat, classifies it, estimates the optimal intercept point in space and finally neutralizes it away from the platform.

"Until recently, APS systems such as TROPHY were considered science fiction" says Dr. Eitan Yudilevich, Corporate VP Marketing and Business Development at RAFAEL. "We've made them a reality. AFVs equipped with TROPHY will benefit from improved survivability and overall effectiveness."

TROPHY is currently ready for integration onto heavy, medium and light platforms against all types of HEAT threats including all known types of Anti Tank Guided Missiles (ATGM) and Anti Tank Rockets (ATR).
