The Navy is moving forward with its ongoing program to develop and produce laser-guided rockets. On June 12, BAE Systems Inc., announced that it was granted a $180.5 billion contract to continue producing its Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS). Using the system, combatants can deliver existing munitions payloads and weapons systems with little additional training requirements. The rockets are highly accurate, and can be deployed from fixed-wing or rotary platforms.
