The US Air Force has awarded Lockheed Martin a contract to develop Paveway II Plus Laser-Guided Bomb (LGB) GBU-12 kits.

The Paveway II Plus LGB is the latest development in the Paveway II family of laser-guided weapons.

The updated guidance package inside the MAU-209C/B computer control group provides accurate target impacts, ensuring more bombs on target.

Paveway II Plus LGB guidance kits improve weapon accuracy and reduce risk to allied ground forces through implementation of a newly integrated combined hardware and software solution.

Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control Precision Guided Systems senior manager Joe Serra said that the contract will provide for delivery of the first full-rate production quantities of the improved Paveway II Plus LGB.

The $34.5m contract is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2011.
