Key Points

  • PGK-M will bring upgrades to PGK’s hardware and software
  • The US Army is expected to issue an RfP later in 2018

The US Army’s Defense Ordnance Technology Consortium (DOTC) awarded BAE Systems and General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems (GD-OTS) Phase 2 contracts for continued development of technologies to enable 155 mm projectiles to perform against a broad spectrum of threats.

The Precision Guidance Kit-Modernization (PGK-M) effort is a new application of technology currently in development by the army as a replacement for the fielded 155 mm Precision Guidance Kit (PGK).

PGK-M will also be interoperable with the army's new long-range artillery projectiles and platforms (which are currently in parallel development), according to Audra Calloway, a spokesperson with the US Army’s Picatinny Arsenal.
