Client: Ministry of Defence of Spain – Directorate-General for Armament and Material (2014 – ongoing)
Optimization, adaptation and manufacture of an operational semi-active laser guidance kit prototype, with guidance, navigation and control (GNC) system, compatible with the 70 mm air-to-ground rocket.
AERTEC has developed a GNC (Guidance, Navigation and Control) system based on semi-active lasers (SAL) that is independent of the platform, to guarantee high precision guidance and navigation. Thanks to this GNC system, the platform acquires the capacity to detect the target and act accordingly, varying its flight conditions until it impacts the target.
The Spanish Air Force has classified it as a product of high military interest for Defence. It is also ITAR-free (International Regulation of Arms Trafficking), and offers remarkable versatility since it can be installed in both air-surface and surface-surface systems.
