Japan to begin receiving Joint Strike Missiles from April 2021
09 Sep 2020 Kosuke Takahashi

"The missiles, which have been designed to fit in the internal weapons bay of the F-35A, have a range of about 500 km and can thus be launched from a stand-off distance.

In November 2019 manufacturer Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace announced that it had signed a NOK450 million (USD49.2 million) follow-on contract to provide additional JSMs for the JASDF’s F-35As. The move came after Kongsberg announced in March 2019 that it had signed a contract to provide an undisclosed number of “initial” JSMs for Japan’s F-35A fighters.

In fiscal year 2018 (FY 2018) Tokyo allocated JPY2.2 billion (USD20.8 million) to the JASDF for the acquisition of air-launched stand-off missiles, including JPY2.16 billion for the purchase of JSMs. It also budgeted JPY7.9 billion in FY 2019, and JPY13.6 billion in FY 2020 for JSM procurement...." [then info on missiles for F-15s]

KONGSBERG PLACES RF SENSOR ORDER WITH BAE SYSTEMS AUSTRALIA [2 page PDF of article attached]
29 OCT 2020 JULIAN KERR

"BAE Systems Australia (BAES) has won a full rate production order from Norway’s Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace for passive radio frequency (RF) sensors that will significantly enhance the capability of the precision-guided, stand-off Joint Strike Missile (JSM)....

...The order followed a set of flight trials that had demonstrated the successful integration of the electronics systems into the missile, which can engage targets on sea or land at ranges of up to 200 km....

...Although the BAES release did not provide any details of the capability improvements, the company disclosed in April 2017 that an electronic support measure (ESM) receiver being provided to Kongsberg for incorporation on the JSM “will feature an additional land-attack and littoral attack capability.”

Kongsberg revealed at the same time that in addition to the missile’s existing advanced imaging infrared seeker, the RF seeker sensor would enable the JSM to locate targets on the basis of their electronic signature...."

Canadians are going for NSM?

[09 Nov 2020] To our knowledge, it is the first time that an official Royal Canadian Navy lists the NSM as the main anti-surface warfare (ASuW) weapon for the CSC. Contacted by Naval News, an industry source said Kongsberg was close to finalizing the deal.


https://www.navalnews.com/naval-news/20 ... -frigates/

- We also register that the Canadian Navy has officially issued information where NSM is included in the equipment of the new frigates. No contract has been entered into and we do not have the opportunity to comment on this, KDA writes in an email to Teknisk Ukeblad on Friday morning.

First of all, thanks for the info regarding the Canadian Surface Combatant Ship.

Yes, it seems that the Canadians are indeed going for the NSM since that info is indeed official. Alternatively that factsheet can be download from the official Canadian Navy website here:
http://www.navy-marine.forces.gc.ca/a$$ ... 11_web.pdf

To be honest the NSM makes perfect sense to me since it can be carried in the same way and in similar launchers as the Harpoon which the Canadian Navy currently operates and it has the same (but better) capabilities compared to the Harpoon Block II (including land attack). At the same time it's worth to note that the Harpoon missile is getting obsolete so the NSM would be IMO the logical replacement.

But WOW! This is the first time in many year (many decades??) that I'm really impressed with a Canadian military procurement! That ship is (or will be) 'almost insanely' armed to the teeth! This is quite of a departure from the traditional Canadian 'military philosophy' which is to equip their assets such as warships with minimal armament/weaponry.

Now, Canada only needs to select the F-35! :D
“Active stealth” is what the ignorant nay sayers call ECM and pretend like it’s new.

I've been waiting for this...!! 8) Excellent!!!! :applause:
https://www.fma.no/aktuelt-og-media/202 ... -fra-f-35a (Language is Norwegian. Use Google Translate.)
Successful JSM missile drop from F-35A
Defense Equipment was responsible for conducting successful test drops of the JSM missile from the F-35A in the desert at Edwards Air Force Base in California in February.
Kongsberg Defense & Aerospace (KDA) is developing JSM. The testing takes place as part of the program to integrate JSM into the F-35, under the JPO (Joint Program Office) which is responsible for the F-35 cooperation program, and is carried out in close cooperation with US authorities.

Brigadier Jarle Nergård, Commander of the F-35 Department of Defense Materiel
The first phases of the JSM integration work have been contracted directly with the US authorities. The testing started in 2020, and was carried out with drops from planes parked on the ground, and down into a foam rubber pit. Now the first drop is made from the air.
"With this first drop, it was checked that JSM can be separated from an F-35A in a safe way. For that, we use an instrumented aircraft," says Brigadier Jarle Nergård, who is head of the F-35 department in Defense Materiel. This is an aircraft with a number of sensors for speed, movement, and vibration, as well as recording of the bus traffic in the aircraft and communication to the weapon.
"This aircraft is also equipped with three cameras inside the bomb room and has mounted a separate camera pod on the wing with three more cameras. In order to be able to analyze exactly what is happening, both the aircraft and the JSM missile are marked with special photo marks that are accurately positioned. "Both from the aircraft and the missile. And from that we can see through the videos exactly how the JSM missile behaves on its way out of the bomb chamber on the F-35A", Nergård continues.

Extensive testing
This is what the JSM missile looks like up close.
In addition, KDA has instrumented the missile so that all movements in the missile are recorded and sent on a data link to the ground. The F-35A aircraft has similar instrumentation so that you know exactly how the aircraft behaves in the same time period, and this data is also sent via a link to the ground. It is also flown with Chase, ie escort aircraft, in the form of a two-seater F-16 with a cameraman in the back seat who films everything that happens from a little distance.
All this data and videos are what is further analyzed by the Norwegian team (FMA, KDA, FFI). The US Air Force Seek Eagle Office (AFSEO) approves the integration of JSM on the F-35A, and data from aircraft and videos are analyzed by AFSEO, and the test squadron at Edwards Air Force Base. The data are compared with the data models that have been created previously by both KDA and AFSEO.
We start quite simply, and then we build so that the conditions around separation from the plane become more and more challenging. The missile has already been tested extensively throughout its "flight envelope", but some of the tests from the F-35 will also include a longer free flight for the missile, "concludes Brigadier Jarle Nergård.

FACT BOX
JSM is a long-range and precision-guided anti-surface missile developed through a partnership between Kongsberg Defense & Aerospace AS (KDA) and the Armed Forces. In many ways, the missile functions as a small self-guided aircraft that will solve a specific mission - to give the Armed Forces an ability to take out well-defended targets at a long distance. The most important targets will be modern naval vessels with advanced self-defense systems, but JSM can also be used against land targets. In order to complete these missions, JSM must be able to reach the right target, avoid the target's defense systems, and hit exactly where it should. JSM achieves this through a unique combination of technical solutions, and several of these have been developed from scratch in Norway. JSM builds on its predecessor NSM, but also adds several new capacities.
Just like its predecessor NSM, which is now in use in the Norwegian Navy, the JSM is equipped with a small jet engine, wings and tail fins, and swings and steers like an airplane.
JSM is built in composite, and is designed to have the least possible radar signature. Together with the ability to maneuver like a small aircraft, which allows it to fly along the ground and hide in the terrain, this means that the missile will often not be detectable by an opponent until it is very close.

JSM successfully released from F-35A
23 Mar 2021 Robin Hughes

"The Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency (Forsvarsmateriell-FMA), in association with Kongsberg Defense & Aerospace (KDA), the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI) and the US Department of Defense F-35 Joint Program Office, in February conducted the first in-flight test release of a Joint Strike Missile (JSM) from the F-35A CTOL (Conventional Take-Off and Landing) Lightning II multirole stealth fighter over Edwards Air Force Base, California.

Disclosed on 20 March, the test, which was conducted using an instrumented JSM weapon integrated with the US Air Force (USAF) 412th Test Wing F-35A AF-01 instrumented test platform, was part of an ongoing programme to verify the integration and safe release of the weapon system from the Lightning II, beginning in 2020 with ground-release testing at Edwards AFB.

For the airborne release test, the AF-01 aircraft was furnished with three cameras inside the weapons bay and a separate camera pod, housing three additional cameras, mounted on the aircraft’s wing. “In order to be able to analyse exactly what is happening, both the aircraft and the JSM missile are marked with special photo marks that are accurately positioned on both aircraft and missiles. And from that, we can see through the videos exactly how the JSM missile behaves on its way out of the bomb chamber on the F-35A, said Royal Norwegian Air Force (RNoAF) Brigadier Jarle Nergård, head of the F-35 department at FMA. The test also included a two seat F-16 chase aircraft with a camera operator in the back seat recording the release and flight performance of the missile."
