Modern weaponry relies on advanced guidance technology to accurately strike targets and minimize collateral damage. The role of precision guidance systems becomes increasingly important as military targets move in closer proximity to civilian populations, explosive payloads shrink and pinpoint accuracy is expected. From precision-guided munitions to unmanned attacked vehicles, the performance of guidance optics are critical to successful strikes.
