Rheinmetall Fieldranger weapon station with ROSY protection system


A live demonstration of the Fieldranger 20 equipped with the ROSY smoke protection system. The Fieldranger 20 is a high precision, stabilized 20mm weapon station and is designed for mounting on armored personnel carriers or on Special Forces vehicles. The weapon station can also be used in fix installations for the protection of infrastructure or border control. The integrated high precision 20mm Oerlikon Cannon KAE Cannon is a very reliable weapon with a high rate of fire and excellent precision. The integrated ROSY Rapid Obscuring System produces an instantaneous, large-area, multispectral interruption of the line of sight that shields even moving vehicles with a dynamic, long-lasting smoke screen.

The unique 40mm Rosy_L smoke protection system offers light military and civilian vehicles protection from unexpected attacks, e.g. during patrols or when travelling in convoys. Unlike the conventional smoke protection systems in use, Rosy_L is able to generate dynamic smoke screens as well as spontaneous, large-area and multispectral interruption of the line of sight (LOS). Moreover, its multimission capability represents a sure defence against stream and wave attacks. Due to its integrated IR jamming and decoying capabilities, Rosy_L effectively counters all TV-, EO-, IR-, IIR-, laser- and SACLOS-guided weapons. Rosy_L comprises a basic system with a control device and one to four ROSY launchers per vehicle. By means of a one-click adapter, the system can be quickly mounted to the vehicle without tools, and just as quickly removed and stowed.

The latest version of Rosy is the modular Rosy_Mod. It is designed for small weapon stations and light vehicles of the kind used by special operations forces. Rosy_Mod is integrated directly into the vehicle without a surface-mounted launcher, thus making it undetectable.
