Laser Guidance Upgrade Kit (LGUK)

Precise engagement of targets is a mandatory requirement of modern warfare in all modes of battle.

Today’s armed conflicts often take place in urban environments where the targets position themselves behind the cover provided by uninvolved parties (noncombatants – civilians).

Consequently, targets must be engaged by pinpoint ‘surgical’ weapons so as to avoid collateral damage to uninvolved parties and to property.

Precision Guided Munitions (PGMs) enable highly accurate, ‘surgical’ engagement of targets in different combat scenarios and under various environmental and terrain conditions.

ACS presents LGUK – Laser Guidance Upgrade Kit.

LGUK converts standard US General Purpose (GP) bombs and various other bomb types into Precision-Guided Munitions through the addition of a guidance section and a tail section.

LGUK offers an effective solution for the accurate engagement of such targets as fortified positions, entrenched vehicles, moving and maneuvering targets, urban targets and personnel where the use of so-called ‘statistical’ fire would prove impractical, ineffective, excessive or unethical.

LGUK provides the user with a stand-off launching capability (12 kilometers), pinpoint accuracy (1 meter CEP), excellent penetration of hardened targets and enhanced lethality.

LGUK enables the user to employ fewer munitions in order to effectively engage the intended targets and reduces the risk to aircrews.

LGUK is the cost-effective alternative to the acquisition of costly dedicated Laser-guided munitions.
