The US Army has named its newest integrated air defense system after Staff Sergeant Mitchell W. Stout, the only Air Defense soldier to receive the Medal of Honor.

The SGT STOUT system is designed to protect maneuver forces by countering threats from unmanned aerial systems, missiles, artillery and mortars.

The announcement was made during the Army's 249th birthday celebration at the National Museum at Fort Belvoir.

Army Chief of Staff Gen. Randy George emphasized the system's importance in the Army's commitment to maintaining technological superiority and adapting to the changing dynamics of warfare.

Developed since 2018, SGT STOUT has been deployed to Germany, Fort Sill in Oklahoma and most recently Fort Cavazos, Texas.
