AGM-130 Standoff Attack Weapon Mission
Attack fixed high-value targets, day or night, from outside point defenses.
The AGM-130 Standoff Attack Weapon is a solid rocket-powered Guided Bomb Unit (GBU)-15. The AGM-130’s Inertial Navigation System/Global Positioning System (INS/GPS) Midcourse Guidance (MCG) upgrade provides the operator with the existing basic weapon capabilities along with a significantly reduced aircrew workload, an increased capability for target acquisition, and various options for cruise altitudes and impact angles. As a backup in the event of data link subsystem non-availability, the missile may be released in a direct attack mode (the missile may be released from low or high altitudes, but must be locked on to target prior to release).
