Boeing Laser JDAM Demonstrated on B-52H for 1st Time


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Boeing
: 16 September, 2008  (New Product)
Boeing Laser Joint Direct Attack Munition (LJDAM) has been loaded, carried and delivered from a B-52H.
The B-52H is a heavy long-range bomber capable of carrying the largest array of weapons in the U.S. inventory. Another demonstration flight is scheduled for later this year.

LJDAM consists of the standard JDAM guidance tail kit as well as a laser guidance kit that acquires and tracks laser target signals. The weapon is designed to accurately and effectively engage stationary and fast-moving targets on land and at sea. The laser guidance also provides accurate alternative targeting in a Global Positioning System-denied environment.
