Description: The AGM-158 JASSM (Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile) is a long range, fire and forget, air-to-surface, precision standoff missile designed to destroy high value, well defended, fixed and relocateable targets. The JASSM weapon can be employed day/night in adverse weather conditions. Once released the JASSM missile is guided using an anti-jam (SAAM module) GPS/INS navigation system. In the terminal phase of the flight an IR seeker ensures that the JASSM achieves its target. The JASSM stealthy airframe ensures weapon survivability even against heavily defended target with cutting-edge air defenses. It can be fitted with different 1,000-pound warheads according to the mission profile.

The United States Air Force (USAF) Counter-Electronics High-Power Advanced Microwave Project (CHAMP) is a cruise missile delivering a microwave pulse instead of a hard kill warhead. This new weapon is a derivate of the proven Joint Ait-to-Surface Standoff Missile-Extended Range (JASSM-ER) and it was unveiled in 2015. The CHAMP is equipped with an electromagnetic gun that fires microwave projectiles which disable all electric equipment. The new weapon is intended to take out command, control, communication and computing (C4) as well as surveillance and intelligence capacities without physical damage.
