The HGK kit allows the bomb re-targeting during captive flight. It is Jam resistant against electronic warfare. It can operate in all weather conditions day and night. Thanks to its effectiveness, it requires fewer bombs, sorties and crews. As a result, it is cost-effective. The kit provides high precision with integrated GPS/INS. The kit is certified to F-16 PO-III and  F-4E/2020 aircraft. The kit complies with MIL-STD 1760
