Lockheed Martin's Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) – Extended Range (ER) has achieved full operational capability on the F-15E Strike Eagle.

F-15E Strike Eagle is the first Universal Armament Interface (UAI)-compliant platform to field JASSM-ER. UAI-compliant aircraft feature standardized interfaces to support future weapon integration, the company said in a statement Tuesday.

Baseline JASSM was the first missile to be integrated onto a UAI platform. The US Air Force Seek Eagle Office led the F-15E Strike Eagle JASSM-ER and JASSM integration.

Armed with a penetrating blast-fragmentation warhead, JASSM-ER and JASSM can be used in all weather conditions. They share the same capabilities and stealth characteristics, though JASSM-ER has more than two-and-a-half times the range of JASSM for greater standoff distance. These cruise missiles also employ an infrared seeker and digital anti-jam GPS to dial into specific points on targets.

JASSM-ER is also integrated on the B1-B and currently in the process of integration on the F-16C/D and the internal bay and wings of the B-52H. JASSM is integrated on the US Air Force's B-1B, B-2, B-52, F-16 and F-15E.
