The Ground-Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB) is a long range precision incendiary solution that widens the capabilities of armed forces. Highly effective and accurate over long ranges, the GLSDB is designed to meet the evolving needs of today´s and tomorrow´s armed forces.

Capable of conducting reverse slope engagements and defeating a range of targets, from hardened facilities to soft-skinned assets, the GLSDB adds another dimension to armed forces´ capabilities.

The GLSDB system has a maximum range of 150 kilometer and has been designed to minimise collateral damage.
With 360 degrees target engagement ability, the GLSDB provides commanders and planners with a flexible weapon which complements existing ballistic trajectory weapons. The weapon builds upon the successful Small Diameter Bomb Increment (SDB I) and the Multiple Launch Rocket System rockets.

The SDB is a 250-pound class weapon with an Advance Anti-Jam Global Positioning System-aided Intertial Navigation System, combined with a multipurpose penetrating blast-and-fragmentation warhead and a programmable electronic fuze.

The GLSDB provides:
Increased range
Accuracy to within one metre
All angle, all aspect attack - even targets behind the launch point
Multiple rockets to act against multiple targets, with near simultaneous impact
All weather, 24/7 capability
Terrain avoidance, such as mountains
Cave breaching capability
Launches from hidden or protected positions to avoid detection
Programmable fuze for impact and delay fuzing for deep penetration or proximity height-of-burst
SDB Focused Lethality Munition (FLM) variant is also an option for low collateral damage
Laser SDB variant provides moving target capability
