The Low-Cost Guided Imaging Rocket
is a weapons system under development for the US Navy
in a joint program with South Korea
. The program aims to provide a precision guided 2.75 inch (70 mm) rocket
for use with existing Hydra 70
systems in service, as such it has many similarities with the Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System
program. The principal difference between the systems is that while APKWS would use terminal laser homing
, requiring the target to be 'painted' until impact, LOGIR would home on an image supplied by the launching aircraft, making it possibly less accurate against moving targets, but also a true fire-and-forget
- Diameter: 70 mm
- Guidance: INS midcourse/Imaging infrared terminal.
- Motor: Existing Hydra 70 motors.
