The Advanced Modular Armour Protection (AMAP) is a fourth generation composite armor developed by the German firm IBD Deisenroth Engineering. It is used on modern main battle tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, and reconnaissance vehicles. It offers passive protection in different levels. Depending on the need and missions, AMAP modules can be composed of nanoceramics, ceramics, nanometric steel, and aluminum-titanium alloy. Nowadays, it is used in combination with the Active Defense System (ADS), which was conceived to prevent a military vehicle being struck by a fast incoming missile.
