Missile Contract for Lockheed Martin

Issue: 10 / 2018

Lockheed Martin has been contracted to advance its development of the Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile Extreme Range (JASSM-XR) for $51 million and includes all-up round level systems engineering and programmatic activities to align and phase the work necessary to design, develop, integrate, test and verify component and subsystem design changes to the JASSM-XR baseline electronics, hardware, firmware and operational flight software. Few details about the JASSM-XR are known to this date. However, the missile is likely to be a 5,000 pound-class weapon with a range of up to 1,000 nautical miles to deliver a lethal payload of up to 2,000 pounds precisely on target. Work is scheduled for completion by end of August 2023.
