Precision Guidance Kit (PGK)

The Precision Guidance Kit (PGK) replaces conventional fuzes for artillery and mortar munitions, transforming them into Global Positioning System (GPS)- precision guided weapons. GPS-guided precision weapons on the battlefield can ensure near perfect accuracy while reducing the risk of collateral damage.

Precision Guidance Kit – Extended Range (PGK-ER) provides the accuracy and reliability of the original capability updated for the battlefield of the future.

Hatchet is a six-pound, miniature precision strike munition enhancing lethality and reliability to manned and unmanned platforms. Ideal for use on Group 2-5 UAVs, or integrated with missiles, Hatchet uses GPS to precisely guide itself to a target and its payload rivals those in the several hundred-pound class. The size, accuracy, and lethality of Hatchet is optimal for use on all aircraft, but specifically enhances unmanned aircraft missions.

Turbo-Jet Loitering Munition

Jackal is a turbo-jet loitering munition, enabling rapid speed to distanced targets, longer reconnaissance, and precise target defeat.

 Built with an open architecture, Jackal supports a modular payload with the ability to scale and add multiple warhead types as well as electronic warfare and ISR packages. With a small form factor, Jackal can be launched from surface, maritime, or air platforms already in current inventory.
