Indirect Fire Protection Capability (IFPC)



IN A NUTSHELL...(Back to Top)

The Indirect Fire Protection Capability (Increment 2) is a mobile, ground-based weapon system that will be used by the Army to track and defeat cruise missiles, unmanned aircraft, rockets, artillery, and mortars. It will provide soldiers with 360-degree protection and engage targets from a variety of azimuths. The Block 1 version of the system will include one or more interceptors, a technical fire control, and a multi-mission launcher that will counter unmanned aircraft and cruise missiles. The Block 2 system will expand that capability to defeating rockets, artillery, and mortars. It will leverage the Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) command and control open systems architecture, which includes multiple sensors that can provide target track data to the IFPC system.

The system will be transportable on Army mobile platforms.
