Elbit Systems“™ U.S. subsidiary has made efforts to double the production of a semi-active laser seeker due to the boosted demand of a related munition.

The company said Thursday it is driving up production rates of the seeker to accommodate deliveries of the GBU-54/56 Laser Joint Direct Attack Munition, a weapon designed to strike fast-moving targets.

The Boeing-made Laser JDAM uses an aircraft- or ground-mounted seeker to locate targets without the need for satellite signals.

The company produces the munition“™s seekers in Fort Worth, Texas, under a five-year contract with Boeing in support of foreign and U.S. clients.

“Elbit Systems of America invested in doubling its production capacity for the Laser Joint Direct Attack Munition seekers because we recognize how important this solution is to our warfighters,“ said Raanan Horowitz, president and CEO at Elbit Systems of America.
