Worst Idea Ever

It's an umbrella that looks like it has a gun hidden inside. How to get shot by the police in one easy purchase, it's a Gunbrella!

The Iron Curtain Countermeasures System

Iron Curtain is an Active Protection system (APS) that defeats many of the most challenging armored vehicle threats.

How Iron Curtain Works

(1) A C-band radar detects and tracks an incoming round, alerting the system and switching it from armed-ready to an armed state. (2) At close range, a distributed optical sensor classifies the threat to select aimpoint and determine which countermeasure (CM) to fire. (3) The CM acts straight down, killing the threat with minimal collateral damage to personnel in close proximity.
