Nice! Cool that there are these kind of sources.

I can add that Raytheon has thrown in their pitch for a (short-term) solution to ASuW. Perhaps in anticipation of competition from JSM and maybe to disrupt Kongsbergs pitch for integration? Just a thought...

Joint Strike Fighter Can Carry Raytheon Joint Standoff Weapon Internally

JSOW C-1 combined with JSF gives warfighter a powerful new capability

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Nov. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has completed a fit check of the Joint Standoff Weapon in the internal carriage bay of the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.

"The capabilities of the JSF combined with JSOW C-1's ability to precisely engage moving ships at sea from standoff ranges would give the U.S. and coalition warfighter a powerful capability," said Cmdr. Samuel Hanaki, U.S. Navy JSOW deputy program manager.

During the fit check, Raytheon technicians loaded a JSOW shape in the JSF's internal carriage bay and conducted a series of tests to prove the bay door could close properly without damaging the aircraft or the weapon.

"JSOW C-1 is the world's first net-enabled standoff weapon that can engage a moving maritime target," said Phyllis McEnroe, JSOW program director for Raytheon Missile Systems. "With its more than 110 kilometer range (68 statute miles) and tunnel defeat capability, JSOW C-1 will give members of the JSF a critical capability no other weapon can provide."

About the Joint Standoff Weapon

JSOW is a family of low-cost, air-to-ground weapons that employs an integrated GPS- inertial navigation system and terminal imaging infrared seeker, guiding the weapon to the target. JSOW C-1 adds moving maritime target capability and the two-way strike common weapon datalink to the combat-proven weapon.

JSOW C-1 is the world's first networked weapon, and has a range of more than 110 kilometers (60 nautical miles).
The U.S. Navy completed the first free-flight test of JSOW C-1 on July 26, 2011.

Lockheed Martin awarded $19.8 million contract to study JSM integration onto F-35 By Dave Majumdar 31 May 2012

http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articl ... 35-372546/

"The US Navy has awarded Lockheed Martin a $19.8 million modification to a previously awarded fixed-price-incentive-fee F-35 Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) IV contract.

The contract modification is for a Kongsberg Joint Strike Missile (JSM) risk reduction study for the Norwegian Ministry of Defence. Lockheed says that Norway is paying for the study with its own funds. No US monies are being put towards the JSM effort, the company emphasizes.

The study will include physical fit checks, wind tunnel tests, engineering analysis, and designing and building of an emulator and adapter "to determine next steps in integrating the JSM into the F-35" according to the US Department of Defense.

The study should be completed by May 2014."

Hey Spaz, sorry if I'm slow here, but how do you translate this? What is it that the US Navy is paying for actually, when Norway is paying for the study? :?

U.S. tests Norwegian F-35 missile

The chances increase that can sell Kongsberg JSM missile to the F-35.


The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has entered into an agreement with Lockheed Martin for the testing of the Joint Strike Missile (JSM) from Kongsberg.

- This is a very important step in getting secured JSM-integration on the F-35, says Harald Ånnestad who is CEO of Kongsberg Defence Systems.

Norwegian money

The contract is worth $ 20 million (120 million), the DoD report .

This is the Norwegian money stemming from last summer when the Defence Logistics Organisation (Flo) signed a contract with Kongsberg for the further development of JSM, worth 535 million.

Read more about this deal here: JSM-development provides NSM contracts

These funds finance the development of the JSM 2013, referred to as step two.

Integration with the fighter and the construction of pilots / prototypes are in step three.
Preparing integration

According to the contract should be most of the work, 70 percent, made on the Lockheed Martin plant in Fort Worth, Texas, 20 percent of the air base Arnold in Tullahoma, Tennessee and 10 percent in Kongsberg in Norway.

- We will check the physical models of the missile on a real F-35. It is further advanced wind tunnel tests and analyzes and emulator testing. This will ensure that when the real integration starts, so this goes as smoothly as possible, explains Ånnestad.

But it's almost two years. The work is expected to close in May 2014, according to Department of Defense.

Norwegian industry's chance

The Lockheed Martin F-35-Director Tom Burbage visited Norway four months ago, he spoke of JSM as follows:

- It is obvious that the JSM fills a need for performance F-35. The missile has a capacity of several countries called for, not only Norway and the USA. Much good work is done, while much work remains. Among other things, systems integration. But here are several milestones in the years to come.

JSM has a projected export potential of over 20 billion, according to Kongsberg Gruppen the only way to ensure that the F-35 procurement is a Norwegian industrial success.

Norway apparently have signed an intention to buy the P-8 Poseidon from Boeing. I wonder if there could also be a chapter about JSM integration included in the discussions.

Well, I suppose it would be kind of odd if they armed it with Harpoons when they have the NSM/JSM available locally.

JAPAN AEROSPACE: Kongsberg pitches JSM to Tokyo
13 Oct 2016 Greg Waldron

"Kongsberg has made its show debut at Japan Aerospace, promoting its Joint Strike Missile (JSM) for use by the Japan Air Self Defense Force (JASDF) and Japan Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF).

Hans Kongelf, vice president of missile systems at the Norwegian company, says Kongsberg is pitching the JSM to all partner nations and buyers of the Lockheed Martin F-35, which can accommodate two JSMs internally.

Tokyo has orders for 42 F-35s, with the type to replace its McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantoms.

Kongelf also sees a secondary opportunity for the JSM aboard Tokyo’s fleet of Kawasaki P-1 maritime patrol/anti-submarine warfare aircraft.

Kongelf did not discuss Japanese requirements specifically, but says the Kongsberg is well suited to attacking modern warships, which feature three layers of defensive systems: long-range missiles, short-range missiles, and rapid fire cannons.

To evade the first two threats, the IR-homing, high subsonic JSM features low-observable characteristics and a sea-skimming flight profile. To defeat the last obstacle, it flies an erratic flight profile in the seconds before impact, throwing off guns’ ability to lead the missile effectively.

He adds that the weapon’s 120kg warhead all but guarantees a mission kill."

Is the JSM a 1760 standard interface to the aircraft? Haven't heard any noise about putting JSMs on the P-8A ... yet.

There is no formal decision yet (well, an intention) to go for the P-8. Even so, I'm not sure there is any need to arm .no P-8s with JSMs, surface vessels will be carrying NSMs, and the F-35s will be carrying the JSM. Never say never though.

Edwards AFB squadron tests missile for European ally’s F-35
04 Nov 2016 Kenji Thuloweit, 412th Test Wing Public Affairs

"EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AFNS) -- From Norway to Australia, members from a number of allied and partner nations have come to Edwards Air Force Base to team with base units to test systems, enhance international cooperation and advance their own air force’s capabilities.

At the 416th Flight Test Squadron, a team of U.S. Air Force engineers and pilots are working with Norwegian government and industry personnel in testing the Joint Strike Missile. The JSM is designed to be carried in the F-35A’s internal weapons bay and is the only powered, anti-surface warfare missile to do so according to Norwegian officials, said James Cook, the 416th FLTS JSM program manager....

...Before it can be integrated with the F-35A, it is being tested on F-16 Fighting Falcons from the 416th FLTS. The F-16 provides an excellent platform to initially test the missile before it’s transferred to the fifth-generation fighter, test managers said.

“What we’re doing is conducting risk-mitigation testing with the F-16 before the JSM is integrated on the F-35,” Cook said. All tests are conducted over the Utah Test and Training Range....

...Along with Cook, the JSM team consists of test pilots Maj. John Trombetta and Maj. Jameel Janjua (Royal Canadian Air Force), flight test engineers Eric Biesen and Tom Smeeks and Collin Drake, project engineer.

The JSM program at the 416th is one project that falls under the squadron’s European Participating Air Force Program, which Cook manages. The squadron conducts tests for European customers when requested."

Has the UK shown any interest in the JSM for it's F-35's?

I know that the Brits re-designed the SPEAR to fit the F-35B which resulted in (I think) a 6-9 month schedule slip. They had to shorten the SPEAR to fit the slightly smaller F-35B weapons bay, and apparently that shortening took a bit of work as regards the guidance, seeker, and possibly warhead sections.

If the Brits wanted the JSM, would the JSM also have to be further shortened to fit the -B?
Take an F-16, stir in A-7, dollop of F-117, gob of F-22, dash of F/A-18, sprinkle with AV-8B, stir well + bake. Whaddya get? F-35.

There is a long Joint Strike Missile thread where it has been made clear that the JSM will fit only internally in F-35A/Cs. Otherwise the JSM can be carried externally on all variants: viewtopic.php?f=54&t=23247&p=308896&hilit=Internal+Joint+Strike+Missile#p308896
