JDAM bombs. The laser kit is easily installed on existing JDAM kits for 500
pound bombs. This makes the JDAM much more accurate (hitting within 1-2 meters,
rather than ten). The laser guidance also enables the JDAM to hit a fast moving
(up to about 110 kilometers an hour) target. This means, if the bad guys are
driving away, you can still get them with a laser JDAM. The laser guidance
homes in on laser light reflected off the target. Laser designators (which look
like a large video camera on a tripod), have a range (depending on type) of 5-10 kilometers.
