ARTILLERY AMMUNITION
155mm MPM
METRIC PRECISION MUNITION
MISSION
This smart ammunition with metric precision
is mainly used in military engagements with
restricting environment, situations more and
more imbricated and risk of collateral damage.
To meet these requirements, the ammunition
is equipped with semi active laser seeker.
In the last seconds of the ballistic flight
ammunition, the target is illuminated by a
laser designator.
When it is detected, the seeker locks on to the
target. Then the guidance and control phase
is initiated and follow up to the target impact. Choices of components for guidance and control,
target acquisition and detection have been done to assure a maximum communality with various
types of ammunition (120mm mortar, 120mm tank, 155 artillery and helicopter rocket), while
maintaining a high level of performances.
