Saab will present the newly-developed Ground Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB) for the first time at DSEI.
Earlier this year Saab and Boeing tested the Ground Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB). By integrating the SDB I air-launched weapon with the M26 ground-based rocket motor (from the Multiple Launch Rocket System) Saab and Boeing created a new class of precision attack system, the company said in a statement Thursday.
Successful live-fire tests showed that the bomb can withstand a rocket artillery launch with no compromise in its flight performance. Now, visitors to London’s DSEI defence and security exhibition this month will be able to evaluate the new weapon system for the first time.
“The new GLSDB is a system that will give armed forces around the world capability to engage any target. Together with Boeing, we now can offer capability for the United States, as well as the global market,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab Business Area Dynamics.
The GLSDB is a long-range precision attack solution that expands the capabilities of armed forces. Highly effective and accurate over long ranges, the GLSDB has the ability to fly complex trajectories and maneuvers to strike targets that cannot be reached by conventional direct fire weapons. It meets the evolving needs of armed forces today and tomorrow, when fighting in complex scenarios.
Important new capabilities developed by Saab for its AT4 weapon system will also be exhibited for the first time at DSEI. These enhanced variants deliver extended range (ER) performance and improved high explosive (HE) effects
