JASSM provides Poland with operational flexibility, reliability and mission effectiveness to meet their national defense requirements,” said Joe Garland, vice president of business development at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “JASSM gives our allies a powerful, vital and affordable cruise missile capability.

The AGM-158 JASSM (Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile) is a low observable standoff air-launched cruise missile developed in the United States. It is a large, semi-stealthy long-range weapon of the 2,000 pounds (910 kg) class.

Armed with a penetrating blast-fragmentation warhead, JASSM is a stealthy, precision-guided cruise missile. JASSM employs an infrared seeker and enhanced digital anti-jam Global Positioning System, and is integrated on the U.S. Air Force’s B-1, B-2, B-52, F-16 and F-15E. Internationally, JASSM is carried on the F/A-18A/B and the F-18C/D aircraft.

Produced at the company’s award-winning manufacturing facility in Alabama, more than 1,700 JASSM cruise missiles have been delivered.
