Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. is showcasing its complete all-in-one Samson 30mm Remote Controlled Weapon Stations (RCWS), integrated with two Spike missiles and the Trophy Active Protection System (APS).
Developed by Rafael, Trophy is the world’s only operational, safety-certified APS in the world, providing combat-proven protection against anti-armour rocket and missile threats, for various types of light, medium and heavy weight platforms. Trophy has the unique ability of locating and reporting the origin of the hostile fire for immediate response.
Trophy is in service in the Israel Defence Forces on the Merkava Mk 3&4 and on the Namer APC with over 600,000 operation hours. It has also recently been ordered by the U.S Army and Marine Corps.
With more than 5000 Samson RCWS systems in service worldwide, the addition of Spike and Trophy significantly contributes to the mobility, manoeuvrability, survivability and lethality of the platform, all from the same OEM.
Targeting specific land and air applications, Rafael will also exhibit the Spike Family of multi-platform, multi-purpose, electro-optical missiles, with varying ranges of up to 30km (Spike NLOS), and the 5th generation Spike LR2 which has already been ordered by a number of customers around the world. Altogether, Spike Family systems have been sold to 33 countries, including 18 EU and NATO nations, with over 30,000 missiles already delivered and 6,000 fired in combat and in tests.
In addition, Rafael is also exhibiting the Drone Dome, an innovative end-to-end system designed to provide effective airspace defence against hostile drones (Micro and Nano UAVs), with Skyspotter – an advanced EO sensor for real-time airspace monitoring, early detection and accurate tracking of aerial objects, including drones, aircraft, UAV’s, etc.
Drone Dome has been sold to a number of customers, including the UK Ministry of Defence.
