JASSM: Dependable, Affordable, Long-Range Strike Cruise Missile

Lockheed Martin is investing in F-35 integration efforts for JASSM-ER, including intelligent factories and advanced manufacturing capabilities. F-35 Block 4 upgrades will also bring enhanced weapons-carriage capacity and advanced long-range weapons, combined with built-in, long-range sensors that enhance the F-35’s ability to detect, track and engage future threats.

JASSM is a long-range, conventional, air-to-ground, precision standoff missile for the U.S. and allied forces. Designed to destroy high-value, well-defended, fixed and relocatable targets, JASSM’s significant standoff range keeps aircrews well out of danger from hostile air defense systems.

A 2,000-pound class weapon with a penetrator/blast fragmentation warhead, JASSM employs precision routing and guidance in adverse weather, day or night, using a state-of-the-art infrared seeker in addition to the anti-jam GPS to find a specific aimpoint on the target. Its stealthy airframe makes it extremely difficult to defeat.

JASSM is integrated on the U.S. Air Force's B-1B, B-2, B-52, F-16 and F-15E. JASSM-ER is integrated on the B-1B, the F-15E and is currently completing integration for the internal bay and wings of the B-52H, and F-16C/D. Internationally, JASSM is carried on the F/A-18A/B and the F-18C/D aircraft. Future integration efforts will focus on the U.S. and international versions of Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II fighter aircraft and other international platforms.

With superior performance and affordable price, JASSM and JASSM-ER offer the best value of any weapon in their class.
