Leonardo DRS-Rafael Team Gets $80M Contract to Supply Active Protection Systems for Army, Marines

Leonardo DRS and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems have received a $79.6M contract to supply the U.S. Army and the U.S. Marine Corps with active protection systems designed to protect combat ground vehicles from anti-armor rockets and missiles.

The industry team will provide additional TROPHY systems and the contract will bring the total funded value of the military program to $200M, Leonardo DRS said Tuesday.

Both companies developed a smaller variant of the platform and tested it on a Bradley fighting vehicle in August last year.

“Together with our Rafael partners, we are fully committed to meeting our customers’ demands and are working in parallel to further address the urgent protection needs of other U.S. platforms,” said Aaron Hankins, vice president and general manager of Leonardo’s land systems division.
