III.H.04. Precision Guided Mortar Munition (PGMM) ATD. In FY97, conduct common (120/105mm) seeker CFT. In FY98, demonstrate integrated man-portable fire control system. In FY99, conduct all-up-round demonstrations for 120 mm PGMM. The 120mm PGMM must achieve a range of 12 km using a mass simulant of the PGMM that weighs no more than 40 pounds. The 120mm PGMM must also defeat high value targets. The fire control exit criteria requires the combined weight of the azimuth reference unit and computer to be no more than 30 pounds, have an accuracy of 2 mils, and produce a ballistic solution within 2.5 minutes.
