Newer versions of Paveway (TM) include Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation System guidance capabilities, which combine the precision and flexibility of traditional laser-guided weapons with the all-weather capability of GPS guidance, resulting in a weapon that decreases the required sortie count and weapon inventory while simultaneously increasing the mission success rate.
Combining a global positioning system/inertial navigation system capability and a laser guided bomb, the weapon will be employed on the A-D models of the F/A-18 Hornet and the AV-8B Harrier II.
In addition to dual-mode guidance, the DMGB can be used with laser or Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation System (GPS/INS) guidance only, providing capabilities duplicating either the existing Paveway II laser-guided bombs or GPS/INS guided weapons such as the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM).
Harpoon Block II also provides accurate long-range guidance by incorporating the low-cost inertial measuring unit from the Boeing Joint Direct Attack Munition program; and the software, mission computer, integrated Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation System and the GPS antenna and receiver from the Standoff Land Attack Missile Expanded Response.
