The Lockheed Martin paveway II Dual Mode Laser Guided Bomb (DMLGB) is the next generation laser guided bomb kit that uses the existing paveway II Laser Guided Bomb infrastructure and upgrades the existing Computer Control Group (CCG) system with an Inertial Navigation System/Global Positioning System (INS/GPS), an all-weather guidance system that provide dual-mode guidance capability. With the combination of the upgraded INS/GPS system, existing SAL (semi-active laser) seeker and anti-jam technology, the DMLGB minimizes collateral damage and improves mission effectiveness by providing precision strike capabilities in all weather at extended standoff ranges. The DMLGB is effective against fixed, relocatable and moving targets.
The paveway II GBU-16 kits are used on 1,000-lb bombs, while GBU-10 and GBU-12 kits are used on 2,000-lb and 500-lb bombs, respectively. Lockheed Martin kits are capable of employment by F/A-18, F-16, F-15, F-117 and other aircraft currently configured to carry and release Laser Guided Bombs. The SAL seeker technology and upgraded INS/GPS guidance system are mature, affordable and proven in combat.
