Porcupine Active Protection System


Porcupine RPG countermeasure assembly, under development at Northrop Grumman, integrates a pack of interceptors (4 or 8) mounted on remotely controlled weapon station side by side with an XM307 crew served weapon. These countermeasures utilize modified LAW rockets, which are aimed and programmed to explode near the incoming rocket, thus neutralizing its warhead at a stand-off distance form the protected vehicle.
