Hard Target Void Sensing Fuze

The US Air Force has awarded Northrop Grumman $110 million to manufacture FMU-167/B Hard Target Void Sensing Fuze.

The Hard Target Void Sensing Fuze is an all-electronic, cockpit programmable fuze capable of destroying deeply buried and targets. It provides multiple delay arming and detonation times, as well as a void-sensing capability, which allows for precision activation of the fuze.

“Northrop Grumman’s Hard Target Void Sensing Fuze takes the guesswork out of understanding the timing required to reach the target,” said Pat Nolan, vice president, missile products, Northrop Grumman.
