AbstractSystima Technologies, Inc. (Systima) is developing an end-to-end integrated All-Up-Round (AUR) canister to provide a multiple missile launcher (MML) for Extended Area Protection & Survivability (EAPS) missiles. By allowing a single MML-AUR to provide up to 8 EAPS missiles the number of potential intercepts by a deployed vertical launcher system is greatly enhanced. By incorporating modularity enhancements similar to those Systima developed for small munitions launchers used on Harvest Hawk, mission flexibility will greatly increase by allowing the MML-AUR to work with multiple deployment platforms or as a stand-alone launcher. Systima has experience and relationships with industry primes to rapidly transition government requirements and missile requirements into a production ready design for the EAPS missile. Systima"s MML-AUR design will maximize the mission effectiveness for the warfighter by providing maximum munitions packaging and a capable launcher that will readily integrate with multiple platforms. The MML-AUR would be designed for NLOS-LS type vertical launchers and easily adaptable to platforms such as the Avenger mobile anti-aircraft system increasing its capabilities. This design would also be capable of stand-alone missile launch for a small man-portable weapons/interceptor platform.
