Pyros

Pyros offers the warfighter lightweight, powerful precision

Pyros® is our smallest air-launched bomb, proven through recent government testing to be extremely effective against typical insurgent targets. It is lightweight, and has a high degree of maneuverability. At only 12 pounds (5.5 kg) and 22 inches (55 cm) long, Pyros is ideally suited for applications where weight is a critical factor, such as small unmanned aircraft, rotary-wing scout platforms, light attack aircraft and special mission aircraft.

Raytheon Pyros Small Tactical Munition Warhead Flight Test.

Pyros features an advanced semi-active laser seeker and specially designed multi-effects warhead to precisely engage targets, while significantly reducing the risk of collateral damage.

There are two choices for guiding the weapon to the target: GPS/inertial navigation or laser designation. To maximize kinetic effects and lethality, there are also three fuzing options for engaging the target: height-of-burst, point-of-impact or fuze-delay detonation.

"The warfighter needs a lightweight, powerful, precision weapon that is designed specifically for the UAS platform. Pyros is the ideal solution." said Tom Bussing, Raytheon's vice president of Advanced Missile Systems.
