Abstract
The benefits of guided munitions have been demonstrated during conflicts in recent years. It is now commonplace to see bombs and cruise missiles guide themselves for pinpoint strikes against enemy targets specified by GPS locations. Up to this point, however, self-guidance has been limited to rather expensive munitions (e.g, in the tens, to hundreds, of thousands of dollars range) deployed from large distances. There are clearly a number of benefits to applying cost-effective guidance and control (G&C) to current "dumb" rounds, such as mortars and artillery, for the purpose of providing a pinpoint strike capability to small units.
