Three Air Force crews flying B-2A Spirit bombers, hit 16 out of 16 targets with live GPS- Aided Targeting System/ GPS-Aided Munition (GATS/GAM) weapons during a test at the Nellis AFB, Nev., range. The Whiteman AFB, Mo.-based crews drop the 2,000-lb. weapons from 41,000 feet and record 13 direct hits; three bombs record heavy damage and one is functionally damaged. The Northrop- developed GAM will serve as an interim weapon until USAF fields the new Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM).
