Smoke protection systems for land vehicles
Rheinmetall provides smoke grenades to protect soldiers, small units and combat vehicles as well as multispectral and visual smoke projectiles for the employment of area smoke on the enemy area by artillery and mortars to protect larger units and military installations. With its new hybrid protection approach Rheinmetall combines active soft-kill and hard-kill technologies with passive protection.
As protection system vendor the unit Protection System offers unique 360-degree protection solutions.
LVPS 66 – Light Vehicle Protection System
The 66 mm LVPS light vehicle protection system provides spontaneous protection against conventional weapons, weapons with optical devices and laser distance measurement. Thanks to sudden interruption of the line of sight (LOS) in the visual and infrared spectrum, the LVPS system significantly reduces the chance of enemy hits. The obscurant enables friendly vehicles to take evasive action, mount a counterattack or withdraw under cover. Screening and jamming result in guidance failure and/or loss of target information in infrared-guided munitions. The Rheinmetal Maske smoke grenades can be deployed.LVPS – previously known as SVPS Smoke Vehicle Protection System

Dynamic protection – Survive on the move
The unique 40mm Rosy_L smoke protection system offers light military and civilian vehicles protection from unexpected attacks, e.g. during patrols or when travelling in convoys. Unlike the conventional smoke protection systems in use, Rosy_L is able to generate dynamic smoke screens as well as spontaneous, large-area and multispectral interruption of the line of sight (LOS). Moreover, its multimission capability represents a sure defence against stream and wave attacks. Due to its integrated IR jamming and decoying capabilities, Rosy_L effectively counters all TV-, EO-, IR-, IIR-, laser- and SACLOS-guided weapons.
