Description: The Textron Systems Weapons & Sensor Systems G-CLAW is a lightweight precision guided glide weapon intended for use by unmanned aerial vehicles and light attack aircraft. The glide weapon utilizes GPS guidance to detonate above a designated target with an accuracy of up to four meters. The scalable blast fragmentation warhead has been designed to cause optimal damage to personnel and vehicle targets detonating based upon a height of burst sensor for optimal effects on the target. It can be employed against moving and/or stationary targets adding additional seekers through its modular architecture. The G-CLAW completed its first live-fire demonstration from a Cessna Caravan flying at 10,000-ft of altitude over the US Army's Yuma Proving Ground in Arizona in September 2014. The G-CLAW was unveiled at the Air Force Association's (AFA) Air & Space Conference and Technology Exposition on September 16, 2014. The United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) is funding this weapon development and intends to use it onto an array of aircraft including Class IV Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Beechcraft AT-6 and Textron AirLand Scorpion light attack aircraft as well as converted commercial aircraft such as the Cessna Caravan.
