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 JSOW Block III standoff weapon was sponsored by the US Navy. Its existence was made public in November 2005. Raytheon is developing Block III to add moving target capability to JSOW through a built-in weapon data link and other improvements. Thus making JSOW a network-ready weapon against both sea and land targets at adverse weather conditions. Besides, the new JSOW weapon production standard would lower unit cost beginning in 2009 when it was scheduled to replace Block II in the production line.

The AGM-154C1 developmental contract was awarded by the US Navy's Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) to Raytheon in May 2007. The contract was valued at $93.7 million and the new weapon was expected to join the US Navy's inventory by 2009. Finally the JSOW C1 is expected to enter service with the US Navy in 2016.
