Armed with a penetrating blast-fragmentation warhead, JASSM
-ER and JASSM
can be used in all weather conditions.
The Air Force Smart Operations of the 21st century process improvement initiative included cost estimators and contracting officers from Lockheed Martin's JASSM
Program and the Air Force's JPO.
The long-range air-to-surface called JASSM
missiles will be a force multiplier for the Poland's F-16 fleet.
The House, in its mark-ups, slashed $148 million from the $150 million requested for JASSM
Lot 5 procurement, leaving just $2 million to close out existing contracts, while the requested $67 million in research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT & E) funding for the program remained intact.
In April, Lockheed Martin was selected over Boeing to build JASSM
While baseline JASSM
missile reliability has improved, it is not expected to achieve the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics' required level of 90 percent until 2013.
Another bugbear is an 18 percent rise in the cost of JASSM
, which landed the program in the dreaded "Nunn McCurdy" list of Pentagon acquisitions that Congress says it will terminate unless the Air Force can successfully make a case that the technology is critical to military operations.
The separation test vehicle demonstrated successful operation of JASSM
during captive carry, launch from the B-1B's Multi-purpose Rotary Launcher (MPRL) and flight.
20) Future weapons integration for the B-1 includes the WCMD, JSOW, and the JASSM
Lockheed Martin was selected over Boeing to build the Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile, or JASSM
- a long-range, non-nuclear weapon intended to destroy important, well-defended targets.
A GPS-guided weapon, the JSOW has a range of approximately 50 nautical miles (nm), and the optically and GPS-guided JASSM
has a range of over 200 nm.
