Boeing furthers Ground-Launched SDB
Boeing is moving forward with development of the ground-launched variant of its Small Diameter Bomb (SDB), which it believes fills a gap for long-range precision fires.
The company is modifying the Ground-Launched SDB so it can be operated from systems such as the M270 Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS), using a rocket motor to gain enough altitude and speed to deploy its wings and glide to the designated target.
Jeff Ayers, Boeing director of cruise missile systems, said the variant was attracting early interest from potential customers and the company was looking to carry out a demonstration next year.
