Raytheon has completed the development and testing of WiPak, a new method for the wireless integration of its Paveway family of laser-guided bombs (LGB) onto an aircraft.
The new wireless method will enable Paveway to be incorporated on various aircraft, which was previously done by changing aircraft wiring or flight and stores management software.
WiPak consists of a small wireless transmitter and pilot interface in the aircraft cockpit, and a small receiver attached to the Paveway weapon.
The tool has so far integrated Paveway II/Enhanced Paveway II onto aircraft and offers a quick and cost-effective means of weapon integration.
Raytheon has already installed WiPak in the Embraer Super Tucano counterinsurgency aircraft and is planning to integrate the system on other similar aircraft.
