Lockheed Martin Wins $23 Million JASSM Contract

Lockheed Martin has won a $23 million contract for 12 Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile-Extended Range (JASSM-ER) test missiles. Six of the missiles will be used to complete the development test flight program, with the remaining six to be used in operational tests, but all of the missiles will be tactically configured with a test instrumentation kit.

“These tests will demonstrate the maturity of the JASSM-ER design, and support the Milestone C decision to proceed with low rate initial production of the missile, ” said Alan Jackson, director of the JASSM and JASSM-ER programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.  The flight tests will be launched from a B-1B aircraft.

JASSM-ER program objectives include providing Warfighters with a significant operational capability more than 2.5 times the baseline missile range. The JASSM-ER maintains the same outer mold line, survivability and lethality of the baseline JASSM missile.
