An RPG Defense System For the US Military
In the ongoing effort to develop a defense against short range ground missiles like RPG’s, CPI has patented a unique method known as the ARC system (Active Rotating Countermeasure), for development and use by the United States Military and its Allies
Different than existing systems like the Israeli Trophy System and others, the CPI system using specialized munitions, poses no threat to friendly troops in the area, and is capable of defeating a wider range of threats. AND, it is the only system capable of defeating multiple simultaneous threats, including the RPG -30 decoy system.
As such, the system is deployable on both ground vehicles like tanks and troop carriers, as well as for the first time, helicopters for whom certain mission profiles put them at great risk for ground based RPG attack.
There are two primary components in the CPI devensive system: One is a continuously rotating turret that through its LIDAR interface can release a countermeasure faster and defeating incoming ordinance further from the vehicle, cutting down concerns over fratricide, or collateral damage. The turret features over a dozen individual countermeasure launchers and is capable of defeating multiple threats, simultaneously.
The second component is the munition. Unlike current “shotgun” type solutions to RPG defense the CPI solution utilizes a rocket towed barrier (RTB) that is able to deflect incoming ordinance from its primary flight path, rendering it ineffective or disabling it entirely. In this system there is no explosive munition and no significant danger to friendly troops.

Aka. “The Turret”
CPI’s rotating launcher spins constantly, and can deliver ordinance faster defeating objects further away than current Active Countermeasure solutions

Illustrated Battlefield Scenario
Munitions used in the turret can take on many forms including that of a kevlar parachute towed by a rocket with a wide, non-lethal RPG intercept range.
