US Navy successfully tested new guided bombs

13

Managed aviation Lockheed Martin bombs (UABs) with the DMLGB Dual Mode Laser Guided Bomb were successfully tested in a naval tactical training exercise at the US Navy's Airborne Attack and Air Operations Center at Fallon Air Force Base (Nevada). This was reported by Lockheed Martin.


During the two-day drills, the F / A-18C / D Hornet and F / A-18E / F Super Hornet completed four combat sorties and recently dropped 36 UAB GBU-12F / B Paveway II DMLGB advanced guidance kits. These aviation weapons (ASA) were used in tactical scenarios to engage stationary targets, all of which were assigned.

To improve the accuracy of guidance of the standard PAVWAY II laser laser with a homing head (GOS), an additional inertial guidance system (INS) is used, which is corrected by signals from the GPS global satellite navigation system (GNSS). This ensures ultra-high-accuracy destruction of stationary and mobile targets in any weather conditions.

A kit with guidance equipment installed on an aerial bomb can operate only in a laser mode, in a guidance mode using an INS and a GNSS, or in both modes simultaneously to ensure the possibility of hitting various targets in one departure of the aircraft carrier.

The crews of the Center for Shock and Air Operations, the 9 Squadron of Vampire VX-9 Vampire Aerial and Evaluation Squadron from the Naval Air Force Station in China Lake, California, took part in the tests.

To date, Lockheed Martin has improved over US 7 thousands of Paveway II guidance kits for UAB with dual-mode laser guidance systems. In addition, the company has supplied over 65 thousands of laser guidance systems and more than 125 thousands of advanced training bombs with laser guidance systems for the Navy, Air Force, US Marine Corps and foreign customers.

This was reported by Lockheed Martin.



    and all of them will not calm down. all will create and create deadly toys

      I’m right now and can’t wait to see when they fit their nostrils into the shit 0, which they instructed around.

      Our military-industrial complex also does not produce cookies.
      And past and current events have shown the need to improve this particular type of weaponry for aviation.

    In Syria they will test ... (on civilians)

    Even when the Yankees used "high-precision" bombs for more than a day when they captured a prisoner by the Taliban in Afghanistan. They crippled and beat their Indians and Allies, but they never got into the fortress! Propaganda is all about laundering money stolen from the military-industrial complex.

    I would like to know what distance and drop height of these bombs. And is it possible to bring them down by our air defense means?

      I hope in Syria these tests will not continue ... But if not fate, then let the Syrian air defense bring their corrections to these tests.

    So it can happen. Again, for reporting, to your taxpayers or whatever their congress, for the money spent. Unfortunately, they like to test civilians from other countries.

    UAB “Payway II” with a laser homing head (GOS) uses an additional inertial guidance system (ANN), corrected by the signals of the global satellite navigation system (GPS) GPS

    I think that this is not enough, we need to duplicate all these systems, we just need to install a thermal imaging seeker, and preferably two (just in case), a television guidance system (duplicate it too), a radar system, as well as magnetic, acoustic and electrostatic (and again duplicate, duplicate, duplicate). and only then it will be possible to say that the Americans have high-precision weapons, and so far they only succeed in bombing civilians. upper volt with UAV, damn it.

      Unfortunately, I can’t give a link to the video now, but the film is Amerovsky, documentary, the story is from there. I do not engage in agitation, before making comments, study the question myself (the capture of the Kalay Dzhangi fortress).

    And if you test on military citizens, then you can grab something!

    Yes that's just the point. What is peaceful, what is military. All people. Basically, peaceful people suffer and die. Only with this (from another continent) do not give a damn. PS Why didn’t I finish it? Then excuse me.

    3-4 complexes of the ground version of the "Cortica-Chestnut" with AK-630 on the protected ground object and not a single "smart" bomb will already fall on it! "I think so!"

    The title is not written correctly. "US Navy prepares to test new guided bombs in Syria."

    it was like that, but it was a long time ago. Plus, it should be noted that friendly troops were a hundred meters away, and guidance was carried out from the ground by laser target designation.
