Amid budget challenges and evolving missions, smart and thoughtful production in the right types of precision-guided munitions are is essential as the Pentagon reviews tactics to increase the inventory. This requires a deep understanding of current and future requirements and technological capabilities. 

In this white paper, Defense News will examine 

(1) why the PGM inventories are in immediate need of replenishment 

(2) the differences/advantages in the types of PGM guidance capabilities (laser, GPS, etc) in addressing the challenges facing the Pentagon (GPS denied environments, moving and static targets, all weather, affordability, etc) 

(3) potential approaches to best meet the requirements of the Pentagon to bolster the inventory with the right capabilities and establish a long-term stockpile to ensure the military can properly respond to the evolving threat.
