Kongsberg Raytheon JSM Further Develops

Joint Strike Missile completes long range flight test
The Joint Strike Missile (JSM) has successfully completed a flight test in the United States. The missile was launched from an Edwards Air Force Base-stationed F-16 over the Utah Test and Training Range west of Salt Lake City.

The JSM has a strike capability designed for internal carriage on the F-35. The test demonstrated safe separation from the aircraft performing a number of challenging flight manoeuvres, long range while continuously alternating speed and altitude, all great capabilities for this class of strike missiles.

The JSM is in development for the Norwegian Armed Forces and will complete the qualification programme in 2018. JSM will have great operational capabilities enabling the F-35 to fight well-defended targets across long distances. The missile will be integrated on the F-35A but can also be integrated on other types of aircraft.

The test verified all intended goals completing another milestone towards full integration on the F-35. The JSM program is on track to provide the war fighter a long range precision strike anti-ship and land attack capability,” Eirik Lie, Acting President Kongsberg Defence Systems, said.
