All – Up Round Flight Test… / Standoff Missile

  • Lockheed Martin’s Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) recently completed F-15E platform integration with a successful all-up round (AUR) flight test atWhite Sands Missile Range,N.M.
  • The successful AUR test marked the first time JASSM, or any missile, has been integrated onto a platform using the Universal Armament Interface (UAI). The U.S. Air Force initiated the UAI program with the goal of improving the integration cycle of new precision-guided munitions onto aircraft without changing each weapon and platform’s operational flight program software. The Air Force Seek Eagle Office (AFSEO) led the F-15E Strike Eagle UAI integration efforts.
  • “It is a significant accomplishment to integrate JASSM onto a new aircraft,” said Alan Jackson, JASSM program director in Lockheed Martin’s Missiles and Fire Control business. “The F-15E is the sixth platform for this reliable and high-performing cruise missile. JASSM on the F-15E will enhance that tactical fighter’s capabilities by broadening the range of options available to warfighters.” / Standoff Missile /

Standoff Missile: Launched At 22,000 Feet…

  • Launched at an altitude of 22,000 feet and a speed of Mach 0.85, JASSM navigated to and destroyed its intended target, meeting all mission success parameters during the test. These included demonstrating successful end-to-end JASSM capability on the F-15E and validating the missile operational flight software program written for the UAI.
  • JASSM is an autonomous, air-to-ground, precision-guided standoff missile designed to meet the needs of U.S. and allied warfighters. Armed with a penetrator and blast fragmentation warhead, JASSM cruises autonomously, day or night in all weather conditions. The missile employs an infrared seeker and enhanced digital anti-jam Global Positioning System to find specific targets. / Standoff Missile /

Integration With Other Weapons Platforms… / Standoff Missile

  • This stealthy missile is integrated on the U.S. Air Force’s B-1, B-2, B-52, F-16 and now the F-15E. Internationally, JASSM is certified on the Royal Australian Air Force’s F/A-18A/B. Future integration efforts will focus on the U.S. and international versions of the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II fighter aircraft and other international platforms.
  • Produced at the company’s manufacturing facility in Troy, Ala., Lockheed Martin has assembled more than 1,100 JASSMs for testing and operational use toward a total objective of 4,900 JASSM missiles. / Standoff Missile /
