Maneuver-Short Range Air Defense (M-SHORAD) is an Air Defense Artillery capability which moves and maneuvers in direct support of Brigade Combat Teams (BCT) to destroy, neutralize or deter low altitude aerial threats, including Group 3 UAS, rotary wing and fixed wing aircraft. 

With Leonardo DRS’ M-SHORAD Mission Equipment Package (MEP) on a purpose-built Stryker, Warfighters maneuver with tactical units to detect, identify, track and defeat air threats.

The superior ground-to-air and ground-to-ground lethality creates overmatch for the Warfighters on the point of the spear.


  • Moves and maneuvers with BCTs with necessary mobility, survivability and lethality to fight at the tactical level
  • Detects, identifies and tracks air threats with on-board sensors providing 360 degree aerial surveillance
  • Destroys or defeats ground and air threats using multiple kinetic effectors (direct fire and missiles)
  • Provides protection for the vehicle and crew with the XM914 (30mm) and M240 (7.62mm)
  • Integrates with existing Army networks and interoperable with Sentinel radar
  • Defeats smaller air threats (Group 1 and 2 UAS) at closer ranges with direct fire (as required)
  • Supports growth to directed energy when available
