MIURA is an R&D improvement that combines the Inertial Navigation System (INS) with a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), that are embedded into the autonomous guidance system Veronte in its redundant version, developed by Embention.
The kit is housed in the front of the projectile, with a length of 79 cm., a load of 19 kg. and a dropdown canard control system of 4 guided wings that ensure an accuracy’s Circular Error Probable (CEP) of 10 meters. The MIURA guidance kit is in development but has already been tested on the premises of the National Institute of Aerospace (INTA) in Huelva.
This precision guidance kit will reach to be a very attractive trade item for the whole of countries using artillery systems, wishing significantly increase their accuracy with lower prices to other precision weapons.
