Joint Strike Fighter Can Carry Raytheon Joint Standoff Weapon Internally
Nov 13, 2011

http://www.redorbit.com/news/business/1 ... index.html

"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...."

AGM-154 Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... BMy4Cp0kpY

"Uploaded by edelweiss103 on Aug 6, 2008
The JSOW is just over 13 feet in length and weighs between 1000-1500 pounds. Extra flexibility has been engineered into the AGM-154 by its modular design, which allows several different submunitions, unitary warheads, or non-lethal payloads to be carried. The JSOW will be delivered in three variants, each of which uses a common air vehicle, or truck, while substituting various payloads."
