DARPA’s Rocket Deflecting “Iron Curtain”

This bad ass piece of military machinery from the techno-wizards at DARPA is designed like a deflector shield for Rocket Propelled Grenades.  Using computers and senors that detect incoming rockets, the “Iron Curtain” automatically shoots down the projectile before it can hit the Humvee.  The soldiers inside get little more than a good shaking and the Humvee is barley scratched (considering how much damage RPGs normally do).
