The Statement Below Was Released Feb. 5 by Raytheon:
YUMA PROVING GROUND, Ariz., Feb. 5, 2020 -- Raytheon new Excalibur® S precision-guided munition scored direct hits on moving targets in a U.S. Navy test. Testing validated the projectile's ability to survive the shock and st ress of a howitzer firing, then transition from GPS to laser guidance and hit a moving target.
Excalibur S uses the Excalibur Ib variant's GPS technology and incorporates a semi-active laser seeker to engage mobile land and maritime targets at comparable ranges. Existing Ib projectiles can be upgraded with Excalibur S capabilities.
