TDA Armements tests vehicle active protection
TDA Armements has successfully completed tests of active protection applications for armoured vehicles at the French defence procurement agency's (DGA's) Bourges Test Centre in spring 2016, it was announced in June.
The company develops hard-kill applications for active protection of vehicles against rockets propelled grenades and anti-tank missiles. The tested system was designed to protect against asymmetric threats and serve as an operational asset in external operations by land forces.
The tests were conducted as per a contract with the DGA and with the participation of the Thales optronics division. With the help of an active protection system demonstrator, TDA demonstrated its capacity to neutralise RPG and missiles, including tandem missiles, during the tests. The system is expected to improve survivability of heavy and medium military vehicles operating in urban hostile environments significantly.
With the first tests completed successfully, TDA Armements is preparing for future development phases with support from the DGA.
