Hybrid protection – The interaction of active and passive protection
In the future, the composition of a hybrid protection from RPS could look like this
One of the latest and most powerful systems of its kind in the world is the Active Defence System ADS , which detects ballistic threats from the shortest possible distance and then fights the approaching objects extremely quickly.
Passive protection technologies easily combined with active protectionProtective attachments for various threats serve as passive defence. Rheinmetall produces protection components for land, air and sea.
With the example of the Boxer, several protection technologies can be combined in the future. Rheinmetall's passive protection materials against various types of threat are combined in terms of performance with ADS, for example, and supplemented by the autonomous ROSY smoke protection system.
This is possible because, for the first time, all available protection technologies are combined in one system vendor and are developed and produced under one roof. The integration of active protection components, here particularly the ADS, into passive protection is thus optimally coordinated. As a result, the hybrid protection is lighter and more powerful.
