Description: The all-weather AGM-130 is an extended range derivative of the combat-proven GBU-15 bomb through the addition of a rocket motor and a new guidance package. The guidance system consists of an altimeter, GPS/INS-aided navigation system, and either an IR seeker or a CCD-TV seeker.
The seeker can be either locked onto the target before or after launch for automatic weapon guidance, or it can be manually steered by a weapon systems officer. Manual steering is performed through the two-way data link. The AGM-130 retains GBU-15 direct and indirect attack modes. The weapon can be dropped at high (direct and indirect modes) and low (indirect mode) altitude. The low altitude case is used to avoid enemy air defenses detection. Once the rocket motor is exhausted is ejected from the AGM-130 weapon.
The AGM-130 is designed for use in the F-15E Strike Eagle aircraft.
The AGM-130C uses a BLU-109 penetration warhead and an Infrared (IR) seeker.
