MANTIS (NBS-C-RAM)

Oublished 13 mar 2016

Nächstbereichschutzsystem MANTIS (Modular, Automatic and Network capable Targeting and Interception System), formerly titled as NBS-C-RAM (counter-rocket, artillery and mortar), is the latest very short-range protection system of the German Army, intended for base-protection, particularly in Afghanistan. It is produced by Rheinmetall Air Defence, a subsidiary of Rheinmetall of Germany. It is a part of the army's future SysFla air-defence project. The NBS C-RAM system is supposed to detect, track and shoot down incoming projectiles before they can reach their target within very close range. The system itself is based on Oerlikon Contraves' Skyshield air defence gun system. An NBS C-RAM system consists of six 35mm automatic guns (capable of firing 1,000 rounds per minute), a ground control unit and two sensor units. The entire system is fully automated. The guns fire programmable "Ahead" ammunition, developed by Rheinmetall Weapons and Munitions - Switzerland (formerly Oerlikon Contraves Pyrotec). The ammunition carries a payload of 152 tungsten projectiles weighing 3.3g each.

MANTIS ( англ. Modular, Automatic and Network-capable Targeting and Interception System - модульная автоматическая и сетевая система наведения и перехвата), нем. Nächstbereichschutzsystem MANTIS - зенитный артиллерийский комплекс ближнего радиуса действия ( англ. Short Range Air Defense , сокращенно SHORAD ) производства компании Rheinmetall Defence . Прежнее название: NBS C-RAM. MANTIS предназначена для защиты военных и стратегических объектов гражданской инфраструктуры от низьколетячих воздушных угроз, в том числе пилотируемых и беспилотных летательных аппаратов . NBS MANTIS ближнего радиуса действия способна выявить, отследить и сбить снаряды на близком расстоянии от охраняемого объекта. Немецкая армия станет первой армией в мире, обладающий таким средством защиты от воздушных угроз. В будущем MANTIS также станет важной составной частью комплексной системы ПВО Бундесвера Sys Fla . Комплексы MANTIS полностью интегрируются с системами управления, находящихся на вооружении в германских вооруженных силах.

Nächstbereichschutzsystem (NBS) MANTIS is a very short-range air defence protection system developed for protecting the forward-operating bases of the German Army in Afghanistan. Formerly known as NBS C-RAM (counter-rocket, artillery and mortar), the 35mm fully automated air defence system has been developed by Rheinmetall Air Defence (Rheinmetall) for the German Bundeswehr. The NBS MANTIS short-range force protection system will detect, track and shoot the projectiles within a close range of the target base. The German Army will be the first military in the world to possess such defence against aerial threats.
