Pyros (Small Tactical Munition)


Pyros offers the warfighter lightweight, powerful precision

Pyros® is our smallest air-launched bomb, specially designed for unmanned aircraft systems. It is lightweight, and has a high degree of maneuverability. At only 13-pounds (6 kg) and 22-inches (55 cm) long, Pyros is ideally suited for applications where weight is a critical factor, such as unmanned aircraft, rotary-wing scout platforms and light attack aircraft.

The advanced warhead of Pyros uses an advanced semi-active laser seeker to precisely engage targets while significantly reducing the risk of collateral damage.

There are three choices for guiding the weapon to the target: GPS coordinates, inertial navigation or laser designation. To maximize kinetic effects and lethality, there are also three 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.
