WASHINGTON (BNS): Raytheon Company is aiming to integrate its Small Tactical Munition (STM) onto a wide variety of light-attack aircraft.

"STM's small size enables the warfighter to carry dozens of STMs on a multitude of light attack aircraft," Bob Francois, vice president of Advanced Missiles and Unmanned Systems for Raytheon Missile Systems, was quoted as saying in the company news release.

STM is a new 12-pound, 22-inch-long, precision-guided, gravity-dropped weapon. It was originally designed for unmanned aircraft but well suited for light attack aircraft.

STM has foldable fins and wings, which enable the weapon to be employed from the U.S. military's common launch tube. STM incorporates a purpose-built warhead designed by Nammo-Talley and features a Kaman Aerospace electronic safe arm and fire device, the release added.
