TALON™ is a low-cost, digital semi-active laser guidance and control kit that integrates directly to the front of the legacy 2.75-inch Hydra-70 unguided rockets.
TALON integrates Raytheon’s extensive experience in digital semiactive laser technology and proven history in precision air-to-air and air-to-ground munitions development and production. TALON’s architecture and ease of employment make it a low-cost, highly-precise weapon for missions in urban environments, counter insurgency and swarming boat defense missions.
- TALON was codeveloped with the United Arab Emirates.
- TALON is fully compatible with existing airborne and ground laser designators.
- TALON requires no hardware or software modifications to the launcher or aircraft platform and can be fired from any aircraft that fires 2.75-inch Hydra-70 unguided rockets using the standard M260/261 launchers.
