Brimstone Air-to-Ground Weapon

Air to Ground Weapon

Brimstone is a combat proven, low collateral, close air support weapon offering the unique capability of engaging a wide range of target types, including fast-moving vehicles / vessels in both land and naval environments and in both direct and indirect modes.

Operationally deployed in the Afghanistan and Libya conflicts, Brimstone has proved to be the weapon of choice with its ability to perform surgical strikes in time-critical missions with a true day / night capability.

- Incorporating an advanced dual mode seeker, Brimstone is effective against the most challenging, high speed and
maneuvering targets.
- Effective from multiple platforms, including fighter-attack aircraft, propeller aircraft, helicopters, Remotely Piloted
Aircraft (RPAs), surface vessels, patrol craft
- Proven anti-Fast In-Shore Attack Craft (FIAC) capability against single, multiple and swarming threats
- Low risk of collateral damage – Brimstone’s pinpoint accuracy and focused, low fragmentation warhead


Combat aircraft armed with the Brimstone weapon offer reach, speed, flexibility, precision and the ability to engage multiple targets with a single mission load. When used from a fixed wing platform, Brimstone provides a rapid response for Close Air Support and Counter Insurgency that is not possible from helicopters alone.

Brimstones’s wide range of target types includes:

- Fast moving and maneuvering vehicles
- Tanks and armored cars, bunkers,
- Naval vessels including swarming and individual Fast In-shore Attack Craft (FIAC).

- Proven capability against both static and moving / maneuvering targets
- Pinpoint accuracy and low collateral damage
- Suitable for deployment on a wide range of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, land and surface platforms
- Human-In-The-Loop capability to meet restrictive rules of engagement
- Ability to engage multiple targets with a single mission load. Triples the weapon load out per pylon.
- Standard interface assisting rapid integration to a large number of platforms
- IM compliant

SPEAR Air-to-Surface Missile

Air-to-Surface Missile

Recent conflicts have demonstrated the need for precision strike weapons that can operate night and day in all weather conditions against severe countermeasures and attack moving and maneuvering targets. Powered by a turbojet engine, SPEAR has the beyond horizon reach to ensure that the aircraft remains safely away from hostile air defense units.

Highly effective against air defense units, ballistic missile launchers, hardened structures, maneuvering vehicles, tanks, naval vessels, and more, SPEAR’s flexibility provides fourth-gen fighters with fifth-gen performance. Its precision leads to low collateral damage, while its beyond-horizon reach maximizes aircraft survivability in air-to-surface combat.


SPEAR is equipped with the latest generation precision effects warhead, designed to meet the demands of the future combat mission. The weapon will allow the warfighter to reduce the numbers of different weapons within inventory while also extending the operator’s ability to engage mobile, fleeting and re-locatable targets far beyond the horizon.

- Powered by a turbojet engine for beyond horizon reach
- Innovative multi-mode sensor seeker for increased selectivity in complex scenarios
- High-resolution Millimeter Wave radar
- Semi-Active Laser
- Equipped with a precision-effects warhead


- Low collateral damage precision effect
- Enhanced platform/weapon survivability
- Upgradable/flexible growth
- High load out for increased persistence
- Engagement capability across a broad target set
