In continuation to the test of laser guided bomb kit on 21st January 2010, another trial of the bomb developed by ADE was conducted on 22nd Jan 2010. But this time, releasing it intentionally with 400 metres offset. Inspite of the initial offset, guidance system of the bomb ensured that it homes on accurately to the target. All the mission objectives were met in this trial also. LASTEC has developed the laser subsystem and CEMILAC has done certification of these air dropping trials.

Thats a pretty good offset. What it means is even if the initial aim is off by atleast that amount ~ 0.5km, the munition will guide itself to the illuminated target.
Wonder what was the distance at which it was released?
