Advanced Effect and Protection System AEPS

(Bofors Defense)

A technology demonstrator of the Advanced Effect and Protection System, designed to protect ground targets from cruise missile attacks, was shown by Bofors Defense AB at Eurosatory 2004. Similar to the BONUS target scanner, the AEPS uses fast rotation to scan for targets, and once detected, it activates a directional warhead to destroy it with its large fragmentation charge. While AEPS can be used against a wide range of targets, its main goal is to provide the last line of defense over sensitive targets, protecting them from precision weapons and cruise missile attacks.
