This new development will enhance AL TARIQ’s capabilities to successfully engage hardened targets.

The system integration onto a new generation Penetration Warhead is a milestone achievement for the company, making it possible to field a purpose-built such a warhead on the guidance kit. This new feature enhances the capability to neutralize strategic infrastructures such as bridges, reinforced shelters, control centers and fortified installations utilizing the warhead’s superb penetrating performance.

AL TARIQ is also briefing stakeholders on the enhancement s implemented to its family of PGMs, which have recently been updated to the Block 2 specifications. The upgrade boasts a host of latest technology improvements, including an enhanced navigation solution, a new Height-Of-Burst-Sensor (HOBS) capability for airburst applications and a weapon system that is capable of being digitally integrated on aircraft requiring either MIL-STD-1760 or DIGIBUS interfacing.

The upgrade further boosts the integration of AL TARIQ’s PGMs with a new “PowerPack” that equips the weapons with a pre-flight power source, as well as greater mission flexibility through leveraging cockpit fuze programmability. Rendering it highly effective in neutralizing its target, the weapons system incorporates the latest Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Receiver technology as well as a highly sophisticated GPS anti-jamming solution.
