The British aerospace company, BAE Systems, has developed an improved version of its Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System (APKWS) laser guidance kit that converts dumb rockets into precision-guided munitions. The combat-proven APKWS guidance kit offers enhanced strike distance and precision strike lethality.

According to BAE Systems, the upgrade improves the effective range of APKWS guided rockets by up to 30%, allowing warfighters to engage targets from a greater standoff distance with improved survivability. In addition to the increasing range, the new APKWI can perform attacks from a more closed angle.
