Abstract:

Introduction The Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile JASSM is a next generation cruise missile enabling the U.S. Air Force to destroy the enemys war-sustaining capabilities from outside its area air defenses. It is precise, lethal, survivable, flexible, and adverse-weather capable. JASSMs inherent accuracy three meters m or less using the Imaging Infrared IIR seeker and less than 13 m with Global Positioning System GPSInertial Navigation System INS only reduces the number of weapons and sorties required to destroy a target.
