TARDEC engineers developed the FCLAS, which helps to deflect short-range, rocket-propelled-grenade attacks through the use of a counter-munition radar.
FCLAS has a sensor and a shim-range grenade launcher, loaded with special fragmentation grenades with delay fuses set to intercept the incoming threat at a range of about 5 meters.
The FCLAS (Full Spectrum Active Protection Close in Layered Shield) is now in development, works in extremely close-in attacks from hand-held heat such as rocket propelled grenades and small antitank guided missiles.
