Northrop Grumman has received a $110 million (€98.5 million) production order from the USAF for the FMU-167/B Hard Target Void Sensing Fuze, the company announced on 28 February.

An all-electronic, cockpit-programmable intelligent fuze capable of destroying deeply buried targets, the FMU-167/B provides multiple delay arming and detonation times, as well as a void-sensing capability, which allows for precision activation of the fuze.

[The] Hard Target Void Sensing Fuze takes the guesswork out of understanding the timing required to reach the target,” explained Pat Nolan, Vice President, Missile Products at Northrop Grumman. “We continue to make investments in sophisticated fuzes to help ensure US warfighters and our allies are equipped with the best tools to complete their missions.”

Throughout its rigorous testing, the Hard Target Void Sensing Fuze has continuously demonstrated high degrees of survivability, reliability and accuracy of detonation in penetrating weapons. (Photo via Northrop Grumman)
