Textron Systems Weapon & Sensor Systems, a business of Textron Inc., announced at SOFIC 2017 the successful testing of the FURY lightweight precision guided glide munition against moving targets at Yuma Proving Grounds in Arizona, USA. This test marks a significant milestone, as it marks the completion of the FURY weapon’s development.
“Based on the results achieved during FURY flight testing, we are pleased with the development progress of the Fury lightweight precision guided munition,” Weapon & Sensor Systems Senior Vice President & General Manager Brian Sinkiewicz, explained.
The FURY weapon uses a common interface for rapid integration on multiple manned and unmanned platforms. The weapon’s tri-mode fuzing – impact, height of burst and delay – further enables a single FURY to address a broad target set, ranging from static and moving light armored vehicles to small boats and dismounted personnel. FURY is guided by a GPS-aided inertial navigation system with a Semi-Active Laser terminal guidance, enabling engagement of moving targets.
