Converting Bombs Into Precision-Guided Weapons

The Paveway® laser-guided bomb has revolutionized tactical air-to-ground warfare by converting "dumb" bombs into precision-guided munitions. Paveway bombs comprised more than half the air-to-ground precision-guided weapons used in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom and Unified Protector.

Newer versions of Paveway bombs include GPS/INS guidance capabilities. This innovation combines the accuracy and flexibility of traditional laser-guided weapons with the all-weather capability of GPS guidance, resulting in a weapon that decreases the required sortie count and weapon inventory while  increasing the mission success rate.
