Abstract : JSOW stands for 'Joint Standoff Weapon'. It was designed to be on affordable air-delivered stand-off weapon that is capable against fixed, relocatable and moving targets. It can be used during day, night altitude launch capability from outside target point defenses. The JSOW will maximize interoperability and affordability through system commonality with USMC and USAF platforms. All variants of the JSOW will be all-up rounds (AUR), using common equipment when possible. The JSOW is a launch and leave type weapon that will allow for multiple kills during a single attack. The JSOW can be supported by current and future mission planning assets.
