Laser Guided Training Round (LGTR)

The Laser Guided Training Round (LGTR) provides a low cost training device permitting aircrews to realistically practice the employment of Paveway II Guided Bomb Units. The LGTR duplicates the release envelope, terminal guidance, and closely matches the time of flight characteristics of the GBU-16/B (MK 83 Paveway LGB). The LGTR is comprised of two sections (Guidance Control Section and Payload Section). The Guidance Control Section consists of the seeker, the signal processor, control system, and power supply. The Payload Section consists of the ring airfoil at the trailing edge which also houses the signal cartridges (MK 4 Mods or CXU-3A/B2) and the ejector assembly. The LGTR II is identical to the LGTR, except that it duplicates the release envelope, terminal guidance, and closely matches the time of flight characteristics of the GBU-24B/B.
