Seoul: Aerospace companies Boeing and Kaman have been selected to develop GPS-guided weapons for South Korea’s KF-16 and F-15K fighter aircraft. South Korea’s Defense Acquisition Program Administration aims to help the country’s forces respond to threats with the weapons.
Boeing will build guided wing kits and Kaman will create detonators for the air-to-ground bombs. “The GPS-guided bomb will allow the Air Force to carry out precision attacks day and night, and enhance its joint strike capabilities,” said DAPA in a release. GPS-guided bombs are built to reach their targets despite weather changes, according to the report.
