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 Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile Extreme Range (JASSM-XR) is a new variant with a range in excess of 1,000 kilometers to engage targets on the ground from safer ranges. The US Air Force awarded Lockheed Martin a contract for the development of the JASSM-XR missile in September 2018 with a completion date scheduled for August 2023.
