ARCHBALD, PENNSYLVANIA (BNS): The US Navy has received its 100,000th Paveway II Enhanced Laser Guided Training Round (ELGTR) from Lockheed Martin as part of a five year $114 million contract awarded in April 2005.

According to Lockheed, the ELGTR is recognized worldwide as the only live-fire training solution for Warfighters, and is compatible with F/A-18, AV-8B, F-16 and multiple international aircraft.

ELGTR provides cost-effective training for all Paveway II laser guided weapons, maintaining aircrew proficiency without depleting the Paveway II Laser Guided Bomb (LGB) tactical inventory.

The ELGTR emulates the release envelope, flight characteristics and accuracy of Paveway II laser guided weapons. Live-fire training permits aircrews to practice delivery tactics in a real-mission environment and experience actual weapon characteristics within today’s range limitations.

“The ELGTR is a reliable and cost-effective tactical employment tool that enables our aircrews to efficiently train for and maintain combat readiness,” said Capt. Carl Chebi, US Navy Precision Strike Weapons program manager.
