AGM-154 JSOW Raytheon Missile Systems in Tucson, AZ is being awarded a $97.7 million modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract (N00019-03-C-0001) to exercise an option for the FY 2006 full-rate production of 420 AGM-154C Joint Stand-Off Weapon (JSOW-C) missiles and 421 containers. In addition, this option provides for the procurement of one lot of technical data, one lot of administrative/financial data, one performance characterization Test Vehicle-C (PCTV-C), one Performance Characterization Test, and one lot unique identification nonrecurring engineering. Work will be performed in Tucson, AZ and is expected to be complete in February 2008. The Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, MD issued the contract. Unlike Lockheed’s JASSM which shares its weapons interface, JSOW are unpowered. This really makes them GPS-guided glide bombs with a range of 15-70 km, but the USAF gave them a missile designation anyway. The JSOW-C incorporates an imaging infrared seeker for high precision and adds a BROACH multi-stage warhead with hard target penetration and blast-fragmentation capability.
