BAE Systems and General Dynamics team up to develop 'Smart' 81mm mortar round

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Feb. 2, 2012. General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems and BAE Systems have teamed up to develop, demonstrate and produce the 81mm Roll Controlled Guided Mortar (RCGM), an 81mm precision mortar round. The companies have been maturing the guided mortar technology over the last 12 months and will be conducting tactical demonstrations early in 2012.

The teaming arrangement between General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics (NYSE: GD), and BAE Systems’ Munitions business, will leverage their respective strengths to provide a low-cost precision mortar. The 81mm RCGM uses the current UK L41 round and US M734A1 fuze, but incorporates GPS guidance and General Dynamics’ patented Roll Controlled Fixed Canard (RCFC) technology to provide a precision strike capability.
