Lockheed To Support JASSM Cruise Missiles Of Finland, Poland, Australia

Lockheed Martin has won a $99 million contract to support Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) cruise missiles of Finland, Poland and Australia.

“This contract involves foreign military sales to Finland, Poland and Australia. It will provide for lifecycle support for all efforts related to JASSM and any JASSM variants in the areas of system upgrades, integration, production, sustainment, management and logistical support,” the US Department of Defense said in a statement Tuesday.

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 an infrared seeker in addition to the anti-jam GPS to find a specific aim point on the target. It has a stealthy airframe, according to the company.

JASSM is integrated on the US 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.

Work is expected to be completed by August 2024.
