The PMTS is the next generation live drop trainer, providing the warfighter with affordable live-fire training for both single mode and dual mode direct attack weapons. PMTS emulates the key operational performance and accuracy of all precision guided munitions including the PavewayTM II Plus Laser Guided Bomb, the new Dual Mode Plus, the Dual Mode Laser Guided Bomb (DMLGB) and JDAM/Laser JDAM. The training system integrates a low-cost GPS/Inertial Navigation System subsystem and a MIL-STD-1760 aircraft interface with proven Lockheed Martin Enhanced Laser Guided Training Round technology, thereby providing multiple training options at a fraction of the cost of using tactical weapons.
The PMTS multicarriage-capable airframe provides increased aircraft loadout, further improving overall training cost effectiveness by allowing more training per sortie. Lockheed Martin is the only worldwide supplier of affordable, live-fire training capability, having delivered over 135,000 LGTR/ELGTRs to the U.S. Navy and international customers.
