PROTECTION
GALIX
SELF-DEFENSE SYSTEM FOR ARMOURED VEHICLES
MISSION
The GALIX system treats all known threats,
and therefore offers optimum defensive
action to enhance the survivability of
armoured vehicles:
• 
if identified by the enemy, by avoiding
engagement (broad band IR-visible smoke
grenade),
• 
if engaged by an IR-guided missile, by
avoiding being hit (IR decoy munitions),
• 
if approached by enemy troops, by
preventing an attack (self-defence
munitions),
• 
if engaged in a peacekeeping operation (crowd dispersal munitions).
The GALIX system is modular and the nature of the munitions, the number of launcher tubes and
their positioning can therefore be determined as a function of vehicle geometry and mission.
