Miniature Precision Strike Munition

Hatchet is Defining Possible

Hatchet is a six-pound, miniature precision strike munition enhancing lethality and reliability to manned and unmanned aerial platforms. Ideal for use on Group 2-5 UAVs, or integrated with missiles, Hatchet uses GPS to precisely guide itself to a target and its payload rivals those up to 500-pound class weapons.
