Excalibur lb Environmental Testing

With more than 600 rounds fired in theater to date, Excalibur is the
revolutionary precision projectile for the U.S. Army and Marine Corps
artillery.
Using GPS precision guidance technology, Excalibur provides accurate,
first round, fire-for-effect capability in an urban setting. Excalibur
is considered a true precision weaponhttp://www.raytheon.com/capabilities/rtnwcm/groups/public/documents/image/rms_ps_excalibur_infograp.jpg, impacting at a radial miss distance of six meters from the target.By using Excalibur's level of precision there is a major dramatic
reduction in the time, cost and logistical burden traditionally
associated with using artillery munitions. Analyses have shown that on
average it takes at least 10 conventional munitions to accomplish what
one Excalibur can.
Excalibur is a co-development program between Raytheon Company and BAE Bofors.
