1

What are the four types of tracking energy used in modern missiles?

(1) Light energy.
(2) Electro-optical (TV).
(3) Radar.
(4) GPS.

2

Which guidance system is nothing more than very high frequency radio waves?

Radar.

3

What are the three sources that produce the tracking energy used in the guidance systems of
precision-guided munitions.

(1) Active.
(2) Passive.
(3) Semi-Active.

4

What guidance system allows for a “fire and forget” capability of that particular weapon?

Active.

5

In what guidance system does the target produce the tracking energy?

Passive.

6

Which type of guidance system homes in on energy reflected off the target by another outside
source?

Semi-active.

7

What is the control system designed to do?

Actual steering of a PGM.

8

What section of a guided bomb do we refer to as the AFG?

Control section.

9

What are the two types of control surfaces on a guided munition and their purpose?

Fixed and movable. The fixed surfaces stabilize the weapon in flight, and the movable surfaces steer the
weapon.

10

What are the three different mechanical forces that PGMs use to move control surfaces?

1) Hydraulic.
(2) Pneumatic.
(3) Servo-actuators

11

What is the science or art of directing PGMs from one place to another?

Navigation.

12

What is “proportional navigation”?

Movement of the control surfaces is proportional to the error between the flight path of the weapon and the
flight path to the target.

13

Impact and proximity describe the functioning of what part of an air-to-air missile?

Fuze.

14

What must take place for an air-to-ground missile to arm?

Sudden acceleration associated with RM ignition and departure from the firing aircraft.

15

The fragmenting missile case is one way missiles score a kill. What is the other?

Continuous rod construction of the warhead.

16

What is the purpose of the S&A device?

Keeps the armament system in a safe condition while we are handling the weapon and while the weapon is
on the carrying aircraft.

17

What are the minimum components of a propulsion system?

The RM and the RM igniter.

18

Air Force PGM RMs are constructed with what type propellant?

Single-stage, solid-propellant.

19

What are the three types of RMs used in Air Force PGMs?

(1) Medium thrust.
(2) Dual thrust.
(3) High thrust.

20

What are the three major component groups of a LGB?

The CCG, bomb (warhead), and AFG.

21

What is the difference between the GBU-10 and the GBU-12?

The warhead and AFG.

22

Which CCG is used by the GBU-10 and -12?

MAU-169 series or the MAU-209 series CCG.

23

What does the CCG do?

Detects laser energy reflected from the target, processes the signals, and guides the weapon to the target.

24

Which warheads are used by the GBU-10?

MK84 and BLU-109.

25

What warhead is used by the GBU-12?

MK82.

26

What are the functions of the WGU-12/WGU-39 series GCU?

What are the functions of the WGU-12/WGU-39 series GCU?

27

What fuzes are used in the GBU-24 series bombs?

(1) FMU-81/B.
(2) FMU-139A/B.
(3) FMU-143/B, B/B or J/B.
(4) FMU-152A/B.

28

What does the BSU-84 AFG provide for the LLLGB?

Aerodynamic lift and stability during flight.

29

What’s the purpose of the ADU-548/B and the ADG-769 adapter group?

Hardback assembly and lug sleeves provide more distance between the bomb and bomb rack, while the aft
fairing assembly provides an aerodynamic interface between the bomb and wing assembly.

30

Which testers are used for field testing all laser guided CCGs and LGB GCUs?

Digital test set, TTU-373, and TTU-595.
