The Sensor Fuzed Weapon test results exceeded Air Force effectiveness requirements with 8 targets being hit multiple times.
Frank Tempesta, executive vice president, aerospace and defense products for Textron Systems said, "Sensor Fuzed Weapon has exceeded its performance requirements since it originally entered full rate production in 1996.
Each Sensor Fuzed Weapon contains 10 BLU-108 Submunitions with 4 smart warheads for a total of 40 lethal warheads per weapon.
Textron Systems announced today that its Sensor Fuzed Weapon (SFW), a direct-strike, air-to-ground, smart munition, successfully completed the first test, of the Pre-Planned Product Improvement (P3I) variant, at Eglin AFB, Florida.
This footprint is nearly two times greater than that of the baseline Sensor Fuzed Weapon.
