Tawazun Dynamics is the Middle East’s first facility for the development, manufacture, assembly and integration of precision-guided systems for conventional air munitions. The company is part of the Emirates Defence Industries Company (EDIC). Denel Dynamics, South Africa’s largest government-owned defence manufacturer also has an interest.
The company manufactures the Al-Tariq range, a family of strap-on bomb kit systems, used on MK81& MK82 bombs. Al-Tariq provides the user with all-weather, day or night operational capabilities, utilizing GPS/INS guidance. The system allows for increased targeting accuracy by using an Imaging Infrared (IIR) with complete Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) capability, or a semi-active laser seeker. The system can also be fitted with an RF proximity fuse for area targeting, using a pre-fragmented warhead.
