L3Harris’ VAMPIRE (Vehicle Agnostic Modular Palletized ISR Rocket Equipment) system helps US Navy fill Ukraine’s Counter-UAS gap.


Press Release, Melbourne FL, 11 December 2023: L3Harris Technologies’ Vehicle Agnostic Modular Palletized ISR Rocket Equipment (VAMPIRE) multi-purpose weapons systems are having an immediate impact in Ukraine’s wartime efforts.

“Early customer reports say VAMPIRE is already having a positive effect in Ukraine thanks to the US Navy’s ability to respond with ‘unprecedented speed and agility,’” said Jason Lambert, President, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, L3Harris. “As adversary tactics evolve, our customers rely on us to anticipate, design and rapidly deliver reliable mission capabilities. We’ll continue partnering with the Department of Defense to field critical capabilities that will help save lives.”

VAMPIRE enables Ukrainian ground forces to target and destroy enemy drones and defend against adversary ground threats. L3Harris designed the system to deliver advanced reconnaissance and precision strike capabilities to protect Ukrainian civilian infrastructure from enemy attacks. L3Harris completed installation and delivery of all systems, in support of Ukrainian defence efforts, on time to DoD.

VAMPIRE’s mission management system integrates an advanced company WESCAM MX-10 RSTA targeting sensor with its weapons station, allowing an operator to engage targets quickly and accurately. It combines affordability with accuracy from the Advanced Precision Kill Weapons System rocket, selected specifically for use in Ukraine, which will incorporate L3Harris’ proximity fuse for increased system lethality for engaging ground and aerial targets.
