More JSOW GPS Glide Bombs for Turkey
Raytheon Missile Systems in Tucson, AZ received an $11.1 million modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract (N00019-03-C-0001) for 50 AGM-154A-1 and 54 AGM-154C Joint Stand-Off Weapon (JSOW) missiles, one JSOW Dummy Air Training Missile, and 105 containers for the Government of Turkey under the Foreign Military Sales Program. DID covered the new unitary warhead AGM-154A-1 and dual-mode warhead AGM-154C in its recent anchor article highlighting the JSOW program’s recent procurement award.
Like Turkey’s recent purchase of AIM-9X Sidewinder short-range air-air missiles, this JSOW buy is a logical complement to their F-16 modernization program. Work will be performed in Tucson, AZ and is expected to be complete in April 2008. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, Md., is the contracting activity.
