CLAW

Clean Lightweight Area Weapon

Textron Systems


The CLAW smart munition introduced by Textron Systems is a new air-to-ground weapon optimized to defeat soft, widely dispersed targets. (Anti-Personnel/Anti-Material). The 64 lb CLAW uses blast-fragmentation-incendiary effect covering the footprint of a 1,000 lbs cluster bomb. CLAW explodes above the ground level, but does not disperse submunitions of any kind, thus leaving a clean battlefield and eliminating collateral damage from unexploded bombs. CLAW is designed as an insensitive munition and by using deactivation fuze, it is renders harmless within minutes after delivery. CLAW can be designed for carriage by UAVs, tactical munitions dispensers, cruise missiles and glide weapons and guided rockets.
