RAFAEL's ASPRO A (formerly known as Trophy) Active Defense System (ADS) is under production for the newest Israeli Merkava Mk4 tanks. The system can engage several attacks from each side simultaneously, while maintaining relatively low collateral risk. The system neutralizes all types of RPGs and anti-tank missiles, eliminating penetration by the weapon, as well as residual effect, by kinetic hit. Aspro A can operate on stationary vehicles or those in motion. Aspro A is also provided in a lightweight version, for the protection of armored personnel vehicles, with an ultra-lightweight model, designed for light armored vehicles such as the JLTV.
