The “ATLAS RC” can be operated both autonomously and in combination by means of the target allocation of airspace monitoring. The system is operated remotely from the protected vehicle interior and has two MISTRAL “ready to fire” missiles. A machine gun calibre 7.62mm serves as a self-defense weapon. For observation or target detection, the air defense system has a day/night and an infrared visual device and a tracker that enables automatic target detection and target tracking. The Mistral 3 rocket is compatible with all available devices (MANPADS).
