Abstract
This report summarizes the work done at Defence R&D Canada - Valcartier under project 12rd nicknamed Defensive Aids Suite for Light Armoured Vehicles. The aim of this project was to identify, investigate and evaluate modular “plug-and-play” defensive aids technologies to improve the protection of future Canadian Forces land platforms. The project succeeded in demonstrating a second-generation defensive aids suite prototype to improve vehicle survivability against threats such as laser beam rider, target designators, range finders and missile plume simulators. Such a wide variety of sensors and countermeasures integrated on a single platform had never been demonstrated elsewhere. This project enabled Defence R&D Canada - Valcartier and the Canadian Forces to gain tremendous knowledge on means to protect land assets against current and future threats. It has been an ideal tool of exchange with allied nations and to augment our understanding of survivability mechanisms. The results will have a direct impact on future acquisition projects such as the Mobile Gun System and the Multi-Mission Effect Vehicle.
