Battle Tank Active Protection Systems
Leonardo DRS, Inc.

Leonardo DRS, Inc. and Rafael Advanced Defense
Systems Ltd. of Israel (Rafael) recently completed
the delivery of Trophy Active Protection Systems
(APS) ordered by the U.S. Army for installation on
Abrams main battle tanks. This marks a major milestone in the Army's efforts to outfit multiple
brigades of tanks with APS to protect soldiers' lives
against increasing anti-armor threats.
Under contracts awarded on an urgent need basis
by the Army's Program Executive Office for Ground
Combat Systems, the companies delivered the first
APS systems in September 2019 for both the U.S.
Army and Marine Corps. A joint team of government and industry from both the U.S. and Israel
worked together to adapt and integrate Trophy for the two
services' Abrams variants. This delivery culminates a multiyear effort by the Army to study and rapidly field active protection due to the urgency of the threat and the growing need
for improved ground vehicle survivability.
Developed by Rafael in response to successful anti-armor attacks and the ongoing proliferation of those threats, Trophy
APS provides mature, combat-proven protection against rockets and missiles while simultaneously locating and reporting
the origin of the hostile fire for immediate response.
Trophy is the only fully integrated, combat-proven APS in
the world. In addition to the U.S. Abrams tanks, Trophy is
currently installed on the Israel Defense Forces' Merkava
main battle tanks and Namer APCs. It has made numerous
combat interceptions with no injuries to crews, dismounted
troops or damage to platforms since its first operational interception in 2011. Having undergone over 5,000 successful
field tests, Trophy has accrued over 1,000,000 operating
hours, and is now under contract for serial production of
over 1,800 systems.
While Leonardo DRS and Rafael have completed these initial Trophy system deliveries to the U.S. Army, the partnership
is also under contract for additional support and development
work for future U.S. Abrams tanks. The U.S. Army is also as36

sessing the next generation " Trophy VPS, " a smaller, lighter,
equally capable variant of Trophy that will provide protection
to a broader range of U.S. ground combat vehicles.
Leonardo DRS is a prime contractor, technology innovator
