AUSA 2019: BAE Systems introduces new countermeasure system

15th October 2019 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems has introduced its new RAVEN countermeasure system for combat vehicles at AUSA in Washington DC.

Part of the company’s integrated vehicle protection system (VPS) suite of products, RAVEN is a directable infrared countermeasure designed to defeat anti-tank guided missiles, protecting ground vehicles and their crews and improving mission effectiveness without the use of kinetic countermeasures.

The rugged, laser-based countermeasure is capable of defeating a variety of guided missile threats. The system is compliant with the US Army’s Modular Active Protection System (MAPS) programme and is designed to integrate directly with threat detection and countermeasure cueing systems, including BAE Systems’ 360 Multifunction Vehicle Protection (MVP) 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 for improved vehicle mobility, lethality and integral survivability.
