Somehow, I missed this report when it aired on Fox News a few days ago. Israeli scientists have developed a new system that provides added protection against rocket-propelled grenades and anti-tank missiles, by literally creating an invisible, defensive "shield" around their vehicles. RPGs are the second-leading killer of U.S. troops in Iraq, and according to correspondent Mike Tobin, the Pengaton is planning a combat test of system in the near future. Watch the video. The countermeasure system literally detects--and disables--an RPG in flight. Fascinating stuff.
