General Dynamics in collaboration with IMI presents Iron Fist Light active protection system at AUSA
جنرال ديناميك تتعاون مع IMI لتقديم نظام iron fist للحماية النشطة
Designed to protect soldiers and vehicles from anti-armor threats, the Iron Fist rapidly and reliably detects, tracks and neutralizes anti-tank rockets (i.e. RPG), anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs), kinetic energy and high explosive anti-tank (HEAT) rounds with two layers of active protection.
The Iron Fist is a full spectrum active protection system with soft and hard kill counter-measures
For optimal reliability, the system utilizes two independent sensing techniques: radio frequency (RF) and passive infra-red (IR). Upon a threat warning, a long-range soft kill electro-optical jammer engages the threat’s tracking and sensing behavior. If needed, a close-range hard kill interceptor physically destroys or deflects the threat a safe distance from the defended platform. The blast interceptor effectively destroys or deflects an incoming threat with minimal fragmentation, minimizing collateral damage or injury to nearby personnel.
The IFL provides 360° protection coverage for close range scenarios in both open terrain and urban environments.
Lockheed Martin Receives $49 Million U.S. Army Contract for Apache Helicopter Sensor Upgrades
M-DSA gives Apache aircrews the ability to more rapidly identify targets and coordinate with troops on the ground, which improves mission success,” said Tom Eldredge, director of M-TADS/PNVS production programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “M-DSA’s modular design reduces operation and support costs, and will be supported by our award-winning Performance-Based Logistics sustainment program.”
With M-DSA upgrades, pilots can identify targets at farther distances through an additional field of view and extended range picture-in-picture capability. They also now have the ability to view high-resolution, near-infrared and color imagery on cockpit displays. M-DSA also provides a new laser pointer marker that improves coordination with ground troops, and an updated multi-mode laser with eye-safe lasing capability that supports flight in urban environments and home-station training.
M-TADS/PNVS provides Apache helicopter pilots with long-range, precision engagement and pilotage capabilities for mission success and flight safety during day and night and in adverse weather conditions. Lockheed Martin has delivered more than 1,350 M-TADS/PNVS systems to the U.S. Army and 15 countries.
Revision Military Unveiled its Submission for FTHS USSOCOM Next Gen Helmet Program
Revision’s unique multipurpose helmet suite consists of Coastal Marine, Riverine, Ground Ballistic, and Ground Bump systems. Revision has also developed a new set of accessories that will be provided with the FTHS suite kits. These specially-designed accessories enhance the multiuse helmet systems for Boat, Vehicle, and HALO/HAHO, as well as mountain, river, and direct action operations

DRS Introduces Vesper, a New Family of RF Receivers for ELINT & SINGIT Missions
The Vesper product line is a significant advancement in RF performance for modular, open-system architecture design. Developed with over 60 years of DRS’ RF expertise, the family of wideband Vesper receivers can be configured with up to a class-leading ten RF channels of receive or transmit capability in a single slot 1-inch pitch 6U VPX module.
“Vesper’s differentiator in the RF tuner industry is the number of channels it can pack into a small form factor without compromising quality or performance,” said Kerry Rye, General Manager of Signal Solutions. “Our engineering is focused on our customers’ need to keep reducing the size of this technology to maximize space on ever-smaller platforms,” Rye said.
As a front end to larger system applications, each RF receive or transmit channel can tune from 2 MHz to 6 GHz with 100 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth. Digital data is timestamped and output via VITA 49 standard for system processing. Channels within a VPX card or between multiple VPX cards can operate independently or are automatically phase-coherent when tuned to the same frequency, which allows for greater application possibilities. The low phase noise synthesizers have fast tuning and rapid phase settling. These features are ideal for geolocation systems performing direction finding or beam forming.
The modular design offers users an advantage over proprietary solutions that hinder upgrades to a system over its lifecycle. “Adherence to modular design approaches for rapid product instantiations, and open standards, was a strong consideration in the design of the Vesper product line. The performance, density, scalability and open VPX technology greatly simplifies and extends a system’s capability,” said Ian Hill, Senior Director of advanced technologies group and product design at DRS’ Signal Solutions business unit.
Built by DRS’ Signal Solutions business unit, the Vesper system is a leader in RF design for size, weight, power and performance, and with its high-signal fidelity and low spurious content, users can be confident they are detecting and analyzing genuine signals.
BAE Systems Unveils Next Generation Bradley Prototype
The Next Generation Bradley includes suspension upgrades to enhance mobility to maneuver within the Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT). It incorporates an upgraded turret from the current Bradley and enhancements achieved during ongoing Engineering Change Proposal modernization efforts, such as suspension improvements, targeting sensors, and network connectivity. BAE Systems will use this vehicle to mature these technologies and provide a platform for development and user experimentation and evaluation.
The prototype features armor, fuel tanks, and the driver’s hatch from the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle, and the 600 volt electronics and final drives from the M109A7 Self-Propelled Howitzer integrated with current and future Bradley systems. Leveraging technology from other BAE Systems-built vehicles in the ABCT allows for significant savings in both development time and cost. In addition, the commonality of parts among the vehicles also provides significant cost savings opportunities over the life cycle of the vehicle and reduces the complex logistics trail.
