Raytheon and Oshkosh have teamed up to build a prototype defensive system by placing a rapid-fire, area-defense Phalanx gun on the back of a diesel-electric, 14-ton Heavy Expanded Mobility Tactical Truck (HEMTT).
"The active denial system will go on an armored ruggedized HEMTT," said Miller. The active denial system is a millimeter-wave heat beam designed to deter targets with heat without causing injury, Raytheon officials said. The idea is to create an intense heat effect sufficient to scatter or deter a target without having to use lethal force.
