Abstract : Introduction: The Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) is a next generation cruise missile enabling the U.S. Air Force to destroy the enemys war-sustaining capabilities from outside its area air defenses. It is precise, lethal, survivable, flexible, and adverse-weather capable. JASSMs inherent accuracy (three meters (m) or less using the Imaging Infrared (IIR) seeker and less than 13 m with Global Positioning System (GPS)/Inertial Navigation System (INS) only) reduces the number of weapons and sorties required to destroy a target.
