Corrected Trajectory Artillery Projectile
(CTAP)

(IMI)

IMI has developed a GPS based guided 155mm artillery projectile which corrects its trajectory in two dimensions (range and azimuth). The system is implemented as retrofit for existing ammunition, with introduction of GPS/IMU guidance, navigation and control subsystems, controlling canard winglets for aerodynamic control. The canards and the "Pure Heart" guidance system are deployed after the apogee point, to gain maximum range.
