Dynetics has unveiled its ENDURING SHIELD concept, a mobile ground-based weapon system designed to acquire, track, engage and defeat cruise missiles, UAS and rockets, artillery and mortars.
Derived from Dynetics technology and modified around previous Army science and technology programs, the system solution has been bid to meet the Army's Indirect Fire Protection Capability Increment 2 programme needs. In creating ENDURING SHIELD, Dynetics redesigned the launcher, created cost efficiencies, reduced complexity and refined capabilities.
ENDURING SHIELD is capable of firing a range of missiles, while providing current and future growth capabilities. The system offers a 360° envelope with the ability to engage multiple targets simultaneously. It can be fully integrated with the Army's Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System, and offers both cyber resilience and EW protection.
"The ENDURING SHIELD solution leverages Dynetics' experience with ground-based launcher systems for the Army, including hypersonic missiles and other programs. We are eager to offer this all-American solution to the Army's cruise missile and other air defense needs," commented Ronnie Chronister, SVP for Weapons Technology and Manufacturing.
