PORCUPINE C-RAM

PORCUPINE C-RAM

PORCUPINE C-RAM defense system offers solution to  the C-RAM requirements drawn by the Italian Army.

A typical PORCUPINE configuration would consist of four firing units, one central control post for target designation and weapon control and a 3D radar system  "track while scan type" for surveillance and target tracking.

Each remote firing unit consists of a 20 mm M61A1 Gatling cannon, its ammunition handling system and a stabilised optronic infra-red (IR) tracking system. 24-hour target engagement capability is ensured.

One Porcupine C-RAM system would typically cover an area of 400 x 400 m but additional remote firing units could be added to extend the protected area and ensure best level of protection.
