MOSCOW, February 27 – RIA Novosti. The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) successfully tested its Golden Horde program last week, aviation website FlightGlobal reported.
It is noted that this program is designed to combine several ammunition, such as high-precision bombs, in order to allow them to “exchange information” and simultaneously hit targets.
During tests last week, four launched bombs managed to simultaneously hit four different targets. “This was a big step forward in the implementation of this program,” said Brigadier General Heather Pringle.
According to FlightGlobal, the Golden Horde program previously had only two bombs to merge. It is also noted that the first tests of the technology, which took place in December, were unsuccessful due to a software problem.
