Combined Reactive and Passive Elements
The ASPRO-H system has been adapted for light armored wheeled and tracked vehicles. The design of the add-on armor is based on Rafael’s modules for the US Bradley, using the same concept and technologies to defeat an incoming threat.ASPRO-H combines reactive and passive elements to defend against a wide range of threats such as anti-tank rockets at 360

, small arms 14.5 mm AP projectiles or more, high speed fragments of artillery, mortar, and high explosive roadside mines. Upgraded multi-threat hybrid armor has recently been
developed for diversified protection
requirements. The systems have been tested and approved for use by the Israel Defense Forces, the U.S. Army, and other customers worldwide. Installation and removal of the add-on armor modules can be performed by the crew without hoisting equipment or special tools.
Robust Protection in Accordance with Safety Standards
The advanced new energetic material featuring Low Burning Rate (LBR) was developed especially for reactive armor systems and was
classified by US DOT as a very
insensitive detonating substance in accordance with UN safety standards. This explosive does not detonate or burn when hit by bullets, projectiles, or fragments, but provides full energy when hit by the jet of a shaped-charge warhead. During a reactive encounter, this explosive causes much lower environmental and collateral damage.
