The U.S. Army will perform a fourth non-developmental evaluation for additional active protection system proposals on the Stryker combat vehicle in November, Defense News reported Tuesday.

Army Spokesperson Ashley Givens announced that the service will be assessing more proposals to see if they meet the given requirements and can serve as possible alternatives to already selected APS offerings, which have been experiencing delays.

The Army’s initial options were Rafael Advanced Defense SystemsTrophy system for the M1 Abrams tank, Israel Military Industries Iron Fist for the Bradley Fighting Vehicle and ArtisIron Curtain for Stryker.

The service’s next wave of assessment will involve putting potential systems to an initial limited test against various threats.
