Lockheed Martin has won $16 million modification contract to supply 4320 BDU-59B/B Laser Guided Training Rounds to the United States Navy.
Work is expected to be completed in December 2021, the US department of defense said in a statement Monday.
The BDU-59B/B is a realistic Paveway II Laser Guided Bomb (LGB) tactical employment training system. BDU-59B/B replicates the key performance and laser engagement requirements of Paveway laser guided weapon systems.
New training rounds is a cost-effective and prudent training solution for Warfighters—both aircrew and terminal air controllers.
BDU-59B/B accurately emulates the employment characteristics of Paveway II Laser Guided Bombs (LGBs) and provides live-fire training so aircrews can practice and refine delivery tactics in tactical mission environments while conserving operational weapon assets; and terminal air controllers can more effectively employ end-game lasing techniques.
The multi-carriage BDU-59B/B further improves Paveway II LGB training efficiency and lowers total cost through use of multiple units during a single training sortie. In addition, multi-carriage system offers dramatically improved training opportunities for Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA).
