Given the crap with Turkish Delight SOM-J looks like NSM will be a runner fore the JSM in da future? TIME WILL TELL. :roll:
Raytheon Awarded LCS Over-the-Horizon Anti-Surface Weapon Contract; Deal Could be Worth $848M
31 May 2018 Sam LaGrone

"The Norwegian-designed Naval Strike Missile has been officially selected to serve as the Littoral Combat Ship’s over-the-horizon anti-ship weapon, according to a Thursday Pentagon contract announcement.

The $14.8 million contract awarded to Raytheon will purchase the first round of missiles that will be incorporated on to the Freedom and Independence variants of the Littoral Combat Ships as part of Fiscal Year 2018 funds for OTH weapon research and development. The value could grow to $847.6 million if all contract options are exercised....

...The subsonic NSM has been in service with the Royal Norwegian Navy since 2012. The weapon has a range of about 100 nautical miles with a cost of slightly less than the Raytheon Tomahawk Block IV cruise missile (the Navy quotes the price per round of the TLAMs at $569,000 per round in FY 1999 dollars (about $868,000 in 2018, adjusted for inflation)).

The companies announced they would pair together to compete for new U.S. anti-ship missile contracts in 2015. In 2016 Raytheon and Kongsberg agreed to assemble and test the Norwegian missile’s components in Raytheon’s Tucson, Ariz. facility and the launchers at Raytheon’s plant in Louisville, Ky. The award to the Raytheon-Kongsberg team comes as little surprise as the Naval Strike Missile was the only competitor for the OTH contract…."

Edwards test squadron completes Joint Strike Missile test program [best read at source for all the details]
14 Jun 2018 Kenji Thuloweit, 412th Test Wing Public Affairs

"EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. --
A team of U.S. Air Force engineers, test pilots and Norwegian government and industry personnel recently completed a large phase of testing for the Joint Strike Missile. The JSM is Norway’s advanced anti-surface warfare missile designed to be carried in the new F-35A’s internal weapons bay. The missile can be employed against sea- and land-based targets. Norway is a partner nation in the development of the fifth-generation Joint Strike Fighter. Before proceeding with integration testing on the F-35A, the JSM was tested at Edwards AFB on F-16 Fighting Falcons from the 416th Flight Test Squadron....

...All variants of the JSM were inert until the final flight test events where it actually hit a target with full mission systems software and guidance. Throughout the test program, numerous software and hardware changes and updates were made. All live releases of the weapon were conducted at the Utah Test and Training Range. “The multi-national test team, including the 416th, was able to work with the weapon developer over the course of the program to improve the JSM in an incremental fashion, which has resulted in a reliable and high-performance missile system,” Drake said. “It was an enormous milestone to release the final, all-up-round weapon.”

Edwards AFB’s airspace, personnel, assets and the American-Norway alliance make it the ideal situation to test the JSM.... The next step is for the Norwegians to integrate the JSM on to the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and then on to further weapons and integration testing...."

Launched from air. Follows planned route for about 200 km, then finds, identifies and attacks target. There's a false target (the container on the ground) 100 meters from the intended target vehicle.

Cooperation between Kongsberg, RNoAF and Norwegian defense research institute.

After 9 seconds, air intake is enabled, wings fold out. The missile gets on its predermined path. When the missile reaches the target area it identifies a correct target. The missile will automatically disable itself if it doesn't identify one.

Hard to tell, but it looks like they could have tested a high-high-low profile?

This is reported to have a >300 nm range with that profile (page 10 in link). Could really extend the effective range of the F-35 while maintaining stealth carry.

It looks like they may have been using a High-High-Low flight profile in the test.

I understand the JSM has has a >300 nm range with this profile--would really add to the reach of the F-35 while maintaining stealth.

Does it appear likely the US will use this on the F-35?

The LM NorskMen Briefing has the graphic of the profile & it is in several places on this forum. Meanwhile.... PDF was at this 'no longer working URL and why would it' shitty WWW: http://norway.usembassy.gov/root/pdfs/v ... _dista.pdf

I think the JSM flight profile you have above is a High-Low-Low profile with a range of 150 nm.

The link below (page 10) shows that with a Low-Low-Low profile for the JSM flight, the range is 100 nm; however, with a High-High-Low profile for the flight of the missile itself, the range is extended to >300 nm--I am guessing more travel distance in thinner air (and I get the impression the High-High-Low profile is most applicable to hitting ground based targets??).

I have seen the 300 nm figure in a few sources, but they could be just referencing the same presentation in the link. Adding 300+ nm to the impressive operational range of the F35, plus factoring in the fact that with this type of stand-off distance, not much fuel would need to be kept in reserved for any type of skirmishing at the point of weapons release (plus improved fuel efficiency with new engines). . . . .this combination is looking to have a very long reach while maintaining stealth.

https://ndiastorage.blob.core.usgovclou ... bright.pdf

I was just wondering how likely it would be for the US to use the JSM with the F-35--so far it seems like there is more JSM/F35 interest with Norway, Australia, and Japan (not sure if the US tends to stay away from non US technology??). I haven't come across much on this with the search tool--but I am still getting used to it.

With the USN adopting the NSM for the LCS and future frigate, and the USAF testing the JSM with a recent firing of the missile from the F-16, its just a matter of time before adoption.
