Description: Pelican is a long range, modular, high precision 155mm projectile for both land and naval artillery. It is being designed to achieve targets with a 10 meters CEP accuracy. The Pelican projectile has been designed to be fired by all NATO standard 155mm guns. Its payload will comprise 4 BONUS anti-tank sensor-fuzed munitions, 77 double effects grenades, and unitary warhead according to the mission profile. The high accuracy of this weapon is achieved through the use of a GPS/INS guidance system and canards for flight control.

Pelican VLR (Very Long Range) is being designed to engage targets at maximum range of 85 km and will be available for future 155mm howitzers. Pelican LR will use a rocket motor and horizontal flight to achieve its impressive range.

The Pelican projectile will be available for naval artillery supporting littoral warfare as well as field artillery.
