“Based on the results achieved during Fury flight testing, we are pleased with the development progress of the Fury lightweight precision guided munition,” says Weapon & Sensor Systems Senior Vice President & General Manager Brian Sinkiewicz.
The Fury weapon uses a common interface for rapid integration on multiple manned and unmanned platforms. The weapon’s tri-mode fuzing – impact, height of burst and delay – further enables a single Fury to address a broad target set, ranging from static and moving light armored vehicles to small boats and dismounted personnel. Fury is guided by a GPS-aided inertial navigation system with a Semi-Active Laser terminal guidance, enabling engagement of moving targets.
