Modern Marvels: Smart Bombs

Precision-guided munitions, or smart bombs, were the buzz of the media during the first Gulf War and a major military and political driving of the second.

Yet the sudden celebrity of these technologically advanced weapons during the 1990s is deceptive. In fact, the history of smart bombs goes back as far as World War I, and includes an ingenious, if eccentric, series of inventions and cast of characters. In this exciting program, The History Channel® provides a comprehensive and detailed account of how and why the United States came to develop these controversial weapons, and explores the significant role the bombs have played in some of the world's most devastating wars.

From radio-controlled to laser- and satellite-guided missles, Modern Marvels® presents the underground history of smart bombs, and takes a look into the future of precision weapons.
