The spanish media Revista Ejércitos has echoed the development program of FGK Guided Ammunition Kits developed by the company ESCRIBANO M&E.
FGK allows the modernization of artillery rockets from 70mm to 300mm and artillery shells up to 155mm, replacing the traditional fuze with a guided ammunition kit to achieve the reduction of the dispersion radius of less than 20m.
It is a guidance system with a GPS sensor, GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) and inertial navigation (INS) designed, developed and manufactured entirely by ESCRIBANO M&E in its facilities in Alcalá de Henares (Madrid).
The control and guidance section, algorithm development, impact prediction, dynamic flight simulation and sensors make FGK improve the effective accuracy of launches (CEP* less than 20m on launches up to 40km), thus reducing the number of shots required to destroy a target and minimizing collateral damage.
On June 7, at the Torregorda Test Center (CET), 5 ER02A1 155 mm projectiles were successfully launched, for the first time in Spain, from a 52-caliber SIAC artillery piece and whose result demonstrated the reliability and precision of the system.
