Northrop Grumman has announced that it has received a $110 million production order from the U.S. Air Force for FMU-167/B, also known as the Hard Target Void Sensing Fuse.
The firm say that the Hard Target Void Sensing Fuze is an all-electronic, cockpit programmable, intelligent fuse capable of destroying deeply buried and targets.
“It provides multiple delay arming and detonation times, as well as a void-sensing capability, which allows for precision activation of the fuse.”
“Northrop Grumman’s Hard Target Void Sensing Fuze takes the guesswork out of understanding the timing required to reach the target,” said Pat Nolan, vice president, missile products, Northrop Grumman.
“We continue to make investments in sophisticated fuses to help ensure U.S. warfighters and our allies are equipped with the best tools to complete their missions.”
