Joint Air-to-Ground Missile Multi-Mode Guidance Section

Joint Air-to-Ground Missile Multi-Mode Guidance Section

The Lockheed Martin Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) multi-mode guidance section offers enhanced performance on tomorrow’s battlefield. Our multi-mode seeker provides an improved semi-active laser (SAL) sensor for precision-strike and a fire-and-forget millimeter wave (MMW) radar for moving targets in all-weather conditions.  These new sensors have been integrated into our JAGM guidance section and mated with our AGM-114R missile bus and demonstrated during multiple guided flight tests. 

Fire-and-forget engagement modes significantly increase JAGM user survivability against threat defenses in GPS denied and austere communications environments. JAGM can engage multiple stationary and moving targets, in the presence of adverse weather, battlefield obscurants and advanced countermeasures. Laser and radar guided engagement modes allow JAGM users to strike accurately across wide target sets and reduce collateral damage. JAGM’s target sets include moving and stationary armor, air defense units, patrol craft, artillery, transporter erector/launchers, radar sites and C2 nodes in addition to bunkers and other structures in urban and complex terrain.

The modularity of Lockheed Martin’s proven, low-risk JAGM design ensures continued affordability in support of the Army’s incremental acquisition strategy and the Department of Defense Better Buying Power initiatives. 

Our Continued Technology Development (CTD) qualified hardware is built on active production lines by the same team that has produced over 65,000 HELLFIRE and LONGBOW missiles with a reliability rate exceeding 97%.
