ARCHBALD, PENNSYLVANIA (BNS): Lockheed Martin has received a $31.1 million contract from the U S Air Force for follow-on production of paveway II Plus Laser Guided Bomb (LGB) kits.

Production deliveries under this contract will include computer control groups and air foil groups for GBU-10 and GBU-12 bombs.

The paveway II Plus LGB uses an enhanced laser guidance package, significantly improving precision when compared to existing paveway II LGBs.

The kit consists of a MAU-209C/B computer control group containing the electronic guidance system and an airfoil group to provide lift and stability to the weapons in standard GBU-10 MK-84 (2,000 lb.), GBU-12 MK-82 (500 lb.) and GBU-16 MK-83 (1,000 lb.) series configurations.

The paveway II Plus LGB is the latest development in the Lockheed Martin paveway II family of laser guided weapons.
