Next-generation missile for next-generation aircraft


Stand Off Missile for the Joint Strike Fighter

Enhanced Capabilities

Lockheed Martin and Turkey’s Roketsan are partnered to cooperatively develop and manufacture SOM-J for integration into the F-35 internal weapons bay and for external carriage on various fighter aircraft.

SOM-J is a next-generation, medium-range, all-weather air-to-surface standoff cruise missile. Stealthy and precise, SOM-J is designed for use against heavily defended, high-value anti-surface warfare (ASuW) and land targets. These include surface-to-air missile (SAM) sites, exposed aircraft, strategic assets, command and control centers and naval vessels.

A Low Cost, Highly Lethal Solution

SOM-J’s modular design supports mission flexibility. With largest-in-class warhead effects, SOM-J complements other long-range weapon systems and provides an affordable solution to maximize stealth, standoff and F-35 endurance across the battlespace.
