Reactive Armor – Bradley Fighting Vehicle

General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems, in conjunction with Rafael Ordnance and Protection Division, has developed a next-generation Reactive Armor for application on the Bradley Fighting Vehicle. This concept in Reactive Armor incorporates state-of-the-art technology, while utilizing an insensitive, high-energy explosive.

The Reactive Armor technology offers a substantial increase in protection levels for troops and equipment against all shoulder-fired weapons and most tube-launched, shaped-charge systems.

The Reactive Armor tiles for the Bradley Fighting Vehicle has been type-classified for production. During U.S. Government qualification, over 1,500 armor tiles were extensively tested. The tests included:

  • Shaped-charge armor protection
  • Small-arms sensitivity
  • Sequential environmental
  • Transportation tests
  • Artillery-fragment sensitivity
  • Sympathetic detonation
  • Collateral damage
  • Tile mapping and junction tests
  • Special safety tests
