Leonardo DRS down-selected for IM-SHORAD programme

3rd July 2018 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Leonardo DRS' mission equipment package has been down-selected by the US Army for the Initial Maneuver-Short Range Air Defense (IM-SHORAD) programme, the company announced on 28 June.

The package includes kinetic and non-kinetic defeat capabilities and an on-board radar. When integrated on the Stryker A1 platform, the solution is designed to provide manoeuvre brigade combat teams with a full detect-identify-track-defeat capability required to defeat UAS, rotary-wing and fixed-wing threats.

The system integrates technologies from industry teammates and partners, including Moog’s Reconfigurable Integrated-weapons Platform (RIwP), Raytheon’s Stinger missiles and Rada’s Multi-Mission Hemispheric Radar. The solution provides both hard and soft kill capabilities while minimising impact on the mobility of the Stryker.

The RIwP turret supports multiple weapon configurations to give tactical commanders flexibility in various combat scenarios.

This down-select decision is part of the army’s IM-SHORAD effort to deliver prototypes in 2019.
