ARLINGTON, Va. — DRS Technologies, Inc., announced today that, in cooperation with General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS), it has successfully completed a ten-month combat vehicle integration and live fire testing program featuring Active Protection technology.

As part of its strategic initiative to demonstrate next generation anti-armor survivability technologies for its combat vehicle fleets, and following an international tender process, GDLS chose the combat-proven Trophy Active Protection System for its full-scale integration and testing program on a General Dynamics LAV III armored vehicle.

DRS and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, partners on the Trophy system, worked in close cooperation with GDLS to perform the detailed mechanical, electrical, and electronic systems design integration and installation of the Trophy system on the LAV III without degrading the original performance level of the vehicle.
