Reading time ( words)

Lockheed Martin has received a Foreign Military Sales contract from the U.S. Air Force to provide the Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) to the Polish Air Force for its F-16 fleet.

Lockheed Martin is providing hardware and software, documentation, program management and missiles in support of the Polish Shield initiative. Poland is the third international customer for JASSM.

“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.”

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.
