Viper Strike Overview

Diameter 5.5 in.

Wingspan 36 in.

Length 36 in.

Weight 42 lb.

Glide Ratio 10:1

Warhead 2.3 lb.

FOV 140

  • Discrete effects precision munition
    • Semi-active laser (SAL) seeker
    • Near 0 CEP
    • Small warhead
    • Hit-to-kill
  • Production airframe/seeker
  • Successful Army Demos (9 for 9)
  • Path Ahead: ImprovementDemo
    • GPS Extend range 10+miles 2005
    • Frag belt Personnel targets, plus “less than 2005
    • lethal” mode
    • Datalink Max range moving targets plus 2006
    • multiple near-simultaneous target
    • attack

current capabilities

Launch Altitudes – 8 to 13k’ and No Need to Maneuver

  • Low Circular Error of Probability – Less than One Meter
  • Low Collateral Damage – 16 Meters for Urban Targets
  • Top Down Blast Effect – Limits Damage in Urban Canyons
  • Moving Targets – Up to 40 kph with Some Target Maneuvering
  • Danger Close – ATEC Approved at 50 Meters
  • Double the Payload – Half the Weight of Hellfire
  • Multiple Laser Designations – Air, Buddy, or Ground
  • Day or Night Capability – All Laser Designators
  • Stand Off – 1/2 to 1km Current ; 5km w/GPS
  • Current HE and Kinetic Warheads plus Frag Sleeve Funded
  • Only Current Munition for Class II & III Weaponized UAVS
  • Capability Fielded in OIF – Proven & Certified
  • Active Production Facility at Redstone Arsenal
  • No Munition Restrictions Beyond Aircraft Limitations
Current Capabilities

“Golden Shots”

  • - Pinpoint a moving armored car in a motorcade
  • Restricted (Minimal Collateral Damage) Urban Targets
  • - Reach down into cordoned urban canyons
  • - Near vertical angle of attack projects warhead shrapnel into the target and ground minimizing collateral damage
  • Convoy & TOC ISR & Security
  • - At 10k’ AGL, UAVs relatively unseen, unheard, and undetectable
  • - Allows observation of enemy preparations, IED placement, and
  • ambush points
  • Key Infrastructure ISR & Armed Response
  • - Refineries, pipelines, politically sensitive locations, etc.
  • Monitor critical situations with timely response
  • - Undetected observation without ground troops in harm’s way
  • Army asset under Army control
