Description: The Boeing Laser JDAM or LJDAM is a low-cost guidance kit that combines combat-proven JDAM (Joint Direct Attack Munition) GPS/INS-based (Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation System) navigation with a laser seeker achieving outstanding accuracy. The weapon can be employed to engage both stationary and moving targets on the ground. Boeing developed its LJDAM solution adding a Precision Laser Guidance Set (PLGS) to JDAM guided bombs. The Boeing LJDAM was selected as one of three contenders for the joint United States Air Force (USAF) and United States Navy (USN) Dual Mode Guided Bomb (DMGB) program. The other two contenders were Lockheed Martin's DMGB and Raytheon's Enhanced Paveway II (EGBU). The joint services primary goal with the DMGB program was to bring versatility by selecting the optimal guidance mode for a given target without adding more weapon systems to the inventory.

The GBU-54 LJDAM was developed adding a laser seeker to the 500-lb GBU-38 JDAM GPS-guided bomb. It allows to engage both stationary and moving targets on the ground with reduced collateral damage thanks to the combination of the 500-lb Mk-82 warhead and the precision strike capability delivered by its dual mode guidance system. The USAF and USN have ordered the GBU-54 guided weapon as part of their efforts during the global war on terror in Iraq and Afghanistan. In July 2008, Germany became its first international customer for the GBU-54.
