A sensor system for defending armoured vehicles against projectiles through the use of active armour. A thermal sensor detects a projectile's presence, and a laser proximity sensor determines its location. A doppler sensor distinguishes between threatening and nonthreatening projectiles by measuring the projectile's velocity. The sensors are positioned in a housing with a segmented spherical window, wherein each sensor can detect the projectile through a window segment having a filtering characteristic which is matched to its associated sensor. An eyelid...
1. An apparatus for defending against an approaching projectile with an explosive weapon array having at least one element, comprising:(a) a housing;(b) a window supported by said housing, said window having a plurality of segments with differing electromagnetic filtering characteristics;(c) shutter means disposed on said housing for covering and uncovering said window;(d) sensing means positioned behind said window for detecting the approaching projectile; and(e) triggering means responsive to said sensing means for detonating one or more elements of th...
