The Lockheed Martin Dual Mode Laser Guided Bomb (DMLGB) is in service with the U.S. Navy. DMLGB maintains the existing Lockheed Martin Laser Guided Bomb (LGB) infrastructure while upgrading the existing Computer Control Group (CCG) with an Inertial Navigation System/Global Positioning System (INS/GPS), resulting in a dual-mode guidance system that provides all-weather capability.
Precision Strike in All-Weather
With the combination of the INS/GPS system, existing semi-active laser (SAL) seeker and anti-jam technology, the DMLGB minimizes collateral damage and improves mission effectiveness by providing precision strike capabilities in all-weather at extended standoff ranges. The DMLGB is effective against fixed, relocatable and moving targets.
The DMLGB guidance kit is compatible with the MK 82 warhead and standard GBU-12 Airfoil Group (AFG). Over 7,000 DMLGBs have been delivered to the U.S. Navy / Marine Corps and are employed on F/A-18 Hornets, Super Hornets and AV-8B Harrier.
