Elbit Systems 120mm Guided Mortar Munitions (GMM) Demonstration


Israeli defense firm Elbit System unveiled video about 120mm Guided Mortar Munitions (GMM) Demonstration. Operational needs of the modern battlespace require precision strike capability to support maneuvering tactical combat units with an independent and fast-fire network for immediate response. Elbit Systems Land’s guided mortar munitions (GMM) address the need for high-precision and cost-effective advanced mortar munitions. The mortars deliver first round hit on target, with no ranging or meteorological data required. With enhanced precision and autonomous fire capabilities including multi-target engagement, the combat-proven guided mortar munitions require less manpower and fewer rounds of ammunition, minimizing the operational risk as well as precluding the need for a complex and vulnerable logistic tail.

Stylet – 120mm Guided Mortar Munition (GMM) High-precision
Ideal for tactical combat units, Special Forces and other units, the Stylet 120mm guided mortar is a cost-effective, easy to operate solution for high quality mortar targets. The Stylet GMM features autonomous fire control and multi-target assault with single positioning, effective against infantry and light armored vehicles at a range of 1 – 8.5km (depending on the mortar system). No ranging is required, to each first round hit on target. The mortar bomb features a multi-mode fuze with Point Detonation (PD), Point Detonation Delay (PDD) and proximity sensor (PRX)
operating modes, and a 5-charges propulsion system.

“Rapier” – 120mm High-precision Long-Range Guided Mortar Munition
The Rapier GMM offers an extended range of up to 16 km and high accuracy even in severe weather conditions. The mortar shell expands fire support options by eliminating the need for spotting targets and delivers superior targeting precision. The mortar bomb features a multi-mode fuze with Point Detonation (PD), Point Detonation Delay (PDD) and proximity sensor (PRX) operating modes. Mission loading time is 15 seconds, and no meteorological data is required.

Iron Sting – 120mm Laser and GPS-Guided Mortar Munition (GMM) SAL/GPS/IMU
The Iron Sting Guided Mortar Munition offers a range of 1-12 km, dependingon the mortar tube. Three modes of operation, GPS/IMU, SAL+GPS/IMU and SAL+IMU provide robust capabilities in all battlefield scenarios. Iron Sting features a seeker laser sensor capable of operating with standard pulse (NATO STANAG 3722) and an encoded CW laser diode (lightweight and low-cost, suitable for small drones and UAS). The warhead is capable of penetrating Double ReinforcedConcrete (DRC) with a blast and fragmentation effect. The mortar bomb features a multi-mode fuze with Point Detonation (PD), Point Detonation Delay (PDD) and proximity sensor (PRX) operating modes.

Elbit Systems has earned an outstanding global reputation for innovation, reliability and excellence in mortar systems. Elbit Systems Land offers a comprehensive mortar munitions portfolio that provides pinpoint accuracy and reliable performance. The GMM are equipped with a multi-mode fuze (Point Detonation, Point Detonation Delay, Height of Burst), blast and fragmentation warheads, and some also include penetration warheads. These advanced operational capabilities significantly enhance fire power at the battalion and brigade level. The introduction of these new capabilities enables accurate firing to extended ranges with near vertical trajectory at line-of-sight (LOS) and non-line-of-sight (NLOS) targets, in urban or open terrain, and in all weather conditions.

Elbit Systems Land’s precision GMM enable high hit probability with enhanced survivability. The mortars deliver first round hit on target, with no ranging or meteorological data required. With enhanced precision and autonomous fire capabilities including multi-target engagement, the combat-proven guided mortar munitions require less manpower and fewer rounds of ammunition, minimizing the operational risk as well as precluding the need for a complex and vulnerable logistic tail. Elbit Systems’ production facilities feature advanced manufacturing infrastructure and highly skilled staff, enabling an annual production capacity of hundreds of thousands bombs of all calibers. Capabilities cover all aspects of manufacturing,
assembly, packing, quality assurance and control, metallurgic, inspections ballistics and full in-house live firing testing.
