BAE Systems unveiled its RAVEN Countermeasure system for combat vehicles as part of its integrated vehicle protection system (VPS) suite of products, on Monday,
The RAVEN Countermeasure system is a laser-based countermeasure capable of defeating a variety of guided missile threats without the use of kinetic countermeasures. The directable infrared countermeasure is compliant with the US Army's Modular Active Protection System (MAPS) program and is designed to integrate directly with threat detection and countermeasure cueing systems, including BAE Systems' 360 Multifunction Vehicle Protection Sensor, a long-wave infrared situational awareness and warning system that serves as the eyes of the company's integrated VPS suite. The 360 MVP Sensor can cue RAVEN to quickly and efficiently defeat threats and also provides 360-degree situational awareness. As part of a layered vehicle defense system, RAVEN complements kinetic countermeasure systems with a virtually unlimited number of shots.
Earlier this year, the US Army recommended the integration of the RAVEN Countermeasure system onto a Bradley Fighting Vehicle for the MAPS Program's Layered Active Protection Demonstration, which took place in September 2019. The recommendation followed the Soft Kill Rodeo, a series of tests to determine which non-kinetic active protection system technology has the most potential.
