Abstract: The concept of aerial bombing has evolved and undergone significant improvements in terms of technologies, systems and deployment. While the bombs dropped from balloons in the second half of nineteenth century had a Circular Error Probability (CEP) of a few kilometres, the most recent smart glide weapons can achieve sub-metre CEP. The revolutionary developments in the field of Electronics, Sensors, Software and Mechanisms in the recent years, and their impact on improved performance of the systems are highlighted. This report gives an overview of evolution of aerial bombing systems and technologies over the decades, and also the future of smart weapons.
