The Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) has awarded Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control two contracts for continued development of an open-architecture controller for the U.S. Army’s Modular Active Protection System (MAPS) program.
As a critical element of the MAPS program, the controller processes information from multiple sensor and self-defense systems that can be used to protect the vehicle. It enables autonomous or semi-autonomous detection and defeat of a variety of inbound threats.
Under the MAPS Demonstrator Controller Software – Phase 2 contract, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. will continue software development for a rapid counter-measure capability that protects vehicles against incoming threats.
