Since Operation Desert Storm, there has been a remarkable increase in the employment of guided precision weapons instead of unguided “dumb” bombs. Current political and geopolitical trends, such as uncertainty, financial constraints, workforce limitations, and no/low collateral damage requirements, are driving the technological developments of Precision Guided Munitions (PGMs).
Today, PGMs hit a variety of targets in complex and contested environments from long distances, supporting missions across every branch of the military and in all domains. NATO needs to be in line with the development of the next generation of PGMs to stay ahead of rapidly evolving threats.
