    Very interesting indeed. I like that and could save a lot of lifes. Sure would cut down on those terrorist launching unexpected ground attacks from hidden structures.

    I'd be interested to learn how it works. It clearly is not the same as the Active Armour system that the Soviets came up with.

    Give them about 1 year and they'll probably have that problem licked also.

    It has possiblities. I can see with a marrage of reactive armor, chobham armor, and the Trophy you would have some very good protection from just about anything. Even IEDs (within reason.)

    I guess it must use dopler radar. Maybe even phased array with a dedicated computer chip with no hard drive and everything written in microcode.
