Aero India 2017: Textron Successfully Tests G-CLAW Against Moving Targets

G-CLAW precision guided weapon flight tests from a Cessna CARAVAN

On 14 February, Textron Systems Weapon & Sensor Systems, a business of Textron, announced the successful testing of G-CLAW, the company’s precision guided glide weapon, against moving targets. The flight tests, which occurred in October 2016, took place at Yuma Proving Grounds in Arizona, USA.

The Weapon & Sensor Systems team conducted the G-CLAW precision guided weapon flight tests from a Cessna CARAVAN. G-CLAW demonstrated successful engagement of static and moving targets within 1m circular error probable (CEP). The weapon engaged static and moving targets by transferring navigation from a GPS-aided inertial navigation system to the Semi-Active Laser (SAL) sensor for terminal guidance. The test results verified end-to-end guidance through successful engagement of an off-axis target greater than 2km downrange from the aircraft.

We are pleased with the test results and development progress of the G-CLAW precision guided weapon system,” Weapon & Sensor Systems Senior Vice President & General Manager Brian Sinkiewicz, said.
