A precision-guided munition (PGM, smart weapon, smart munition, smart bomb) is a guided munition intended to precisely hit a specific target, to minimize collateral damage and increase lethality against intended targets. During the First Gulf War guided munitions accounted for only 9% of weapons fired, but accounted for 75% of all successful hits.

Our precision-guided munitions use advanced technologies to consistently and effectively hit a variety of targets in complex environments from long distances, resulting in successful land, air, and sea missions. We focus on delivering scalable, affordable precision fires systems that increase lethality and tactical proficiency in the battle space.A Precision Guided Munitions [PGM] is a missile, bomb or artillery shell equipped with a terminal guidance system.

It contains electrical equipment that guides it in the last phase before impact. The stateof- the-art precision-guided munitions (PGMs) combine all these attributes to make them a potent force multiplier in the contemporary battlefield.

Emergence and subsequent maturity of PGMs, made possible mainly due to advances in electronics, optoelectronics and optics, is one of the most significant developments of modern : EFY Enterprises Pvt Ltd.
