At the Association of the U.S. Army’s Global Force Symposium & Exposition General Dynamics Land Systems launched its TRX SHORAD.
According to the company
“The modular Tracked Robot 10-ton (TRX) technology demonstrator supports Army objectives for a Robotic Combat Vehicle. Displayed at Global Force with short-range air defense (SHORAD) payload for the first time, this TRX variant is the latest innovation within Land Systems’ counter-Uncrewed Aerial Systems (c-UAS) family of vehicles. The TRX SHORAD brings a new dimension of combat power in SHORAD battalions and provides autonomy within a tiered, layered air defense. TRX’s flatbed design integrates any payload and has a class-leading payload-to-chassis ratio of 1:1. TRX is able to maneuver at speed with all formations and is transportable on CH-47 and C-130 aircraft. TRX also generates exportable power to support mission command operations and is hybrid-electric in support of the Army’s climate and electrification strategy.
“Epirus’ proven Leonidas high-power microwave array adds counter-electronics capability to the Stryker family of vehicles at the tactical edge of the battlefield. Stryker Leonidas’ unlimited magazine depth for counter-electronics missions – c-UAS among them – adds a key level to layered, mobile short-range air defense (M-SHORAD). Stryker Leonidas features on-board and networked target acquisition and the mobility to accompany all maneuver formations. The leap-ahead technology has successfully defeated individual targets and swarms of drones during field demonstrations.”
