The Al Tariq provides the user with all-weather, day or night operational capabilities, utilising GPS/INS guidance or infrared, with a complete Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) capability, or a semi-active laser seeker
Built around BAE Systems proprietary Distributed Aperture Semi-Active Laser Seeker
technology, with a mid-body guidance section that fits between the motor and the warhead, the APKWS solution easily transforms a standard unguided 2.
The missile uses a semi-active laser seeker
, so once it is locked on to a target it is near impossible to block or jam, said Thales.
Mid-Range Munition incorporates proven technology using a dual-mode seeker suite comprising an imaging infrared sensor and a digital semi-active laser seeker
The XM 1111 Mid-Range Munition will use an imaging infrared sensor and digital semi-active laser seeker
The gliding munition was designed to kill armored vehicles using GPS-aided navigation and a semi-active laser seeker
The guided APKWS combines the BAE Systems (Nashua, NH) Distributed Aperture Semi-Active Laser Seeker
(DASALS) with General Dynamics' 70mm rocket.
BAE Systems uses a mid-body guidance approach that employs its Distributed Aperture Semi-Active Laser Seeker
(DASALS(TM)), also used on the Army's Precision Guided Mortar Munitions Program.
In case of a SAL munition the semi-active laser seeker
picks the laser coded beam for the final phase.
The missile, which can be adapted to different aircraft and has been tested as a weapon for small coastal vessels, for pinpoint accuracy uses GPS-aided inertial guidance and a semi-active laser seeker
Raytheon developed the uncooled infrared semi-active laser seeker
, network radio and canister.
The test vehicle was launched with a fully integrated guidance and control system and semi-active laser seeker
to evaluate subsystem performance in flight.
