Description: The BLU-108 is an advanced submunition designed to effectively engage and destroy armored vehicles. Each BLU-108 contains four armor-penetrating projectiles equipped with infrared sensors to detect armored targets. These four armor penetrating projectiles are sensitive to the target's heat.

Once the BLU-108 warhead has been dropped from its dispenser, a parachute takes care of stabilizing it. At a pre-programmed altitude determined by a radar altimeter the BLU-108's ignites initiating the ascent. The submunition the releases its four projectiles lofted over the target area. The four shaped skeet infrared sensing armor penetrating projectiles use top-attack profile to hit the target where the armor is weaker increasing the odds for a successful kill.

As of 2005, the BLU-108 warhead has been integrated into the CBU-97/CBU-105 Sensor Fuzed Weapon and the AGM-154B JSOW standoff weapon.
