Description: The Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW) is a modular, family of low-cost weapons designed for high precision strikes from well beyond enemy air defenses. The 3 baseline models carry several submunitions as the warhead or unitary blast fragmentation and penetration warheads. These warheads array enable JSOW gliders to attack soft area targets, armored vehicles and hardened point targets. JSOW also features low-signature/stealth design to engage actively defended targets.

The JSOW weapon variants are guided to the target by a GPS and INS aided navigation system. Target position can be updated by the launch aircraft or a third party through JSOW's on-board communication system. The C model is the only one provided with a seeker to be used in the terminal phase of the flight. The modular design allows future growth incorporating new sensors, warheads and submunitions. AGM-154's back section can accommodate a turbojet for extended range up to 220 kilometers.

Since 1999 the JSOW weapon has been employed successfully during military operations Southern Watch, Allied Force, Enduring Freedom (2002) and Iraqi Freedom (2003). The F-16, F/A-18, B-1, B-2, B-52, F-15E, F-35 and many other aircraft are compatible with the JSOW weapon. Total production for the US military is planned in excess of 20,000 units.

The AGM-154A model was designed against soft area targets (mobile and fixed). It carries 145 BLU-97/B combined effects munitions.
