While the US Army continues onward with plans to equip land vehicles with currently available Active Protection Systems (APS), it is also pressing forward with the development of a longer-term Modular Active Protection Systems (MAPS) to shoot down incoming threats.


On 29 October, the army’s Research Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) announced that it had completed a series of four virtual soft-kill demonstrations using MAPS base kit components with “various combinations of vendor-supplied sensors and countermeasures”.

“Through this series of tests, we were able to validate the ability of the MAC [Modular APS Controller] to control various sensors and countermeasures that comply with the MAF [the Modular APS Framework],” said Bill Beyer, the MAPS Virtual Demonstrator lead.
