A team of Lockheed Martin engineers helped integrate an Ariel Photonics-built countermeasure technology into the Modular Active Protection Systems framework for a live-fire test series that took place at the U.S. Army's Redstone Arsenal base in Alabama.

MAPS-based systems countered all 15 anti-tank guided missiles through a signal jamming mechanism during the field tests, which lasted for six weeks, Lockheed said Monday.

The engineering team also collaborated with BAE Systems, Northrop Grumman and the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command's Ground Vehicle Systems Center on the integration of a cueing system and two additional countermeasures into the framework.

Lockheed developed a MAPS prototype controller as part of a contract awarded in 2014 and the company noted it continues to produce the system's base kit that includes a power management system, network switch, controller, user interface and a software application.

The kit is designed to help engineers integrate technologies built to detect and counter threats to MAPS-equipped vehicles.
