LMC JASSM production
Lockheed Martin received a $116.8 million contract from the US Air Force for continued production of Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile-Extended Range (JASSM-ER). This contract exercises an option in the Lot 14 contract and includes 100 JASSM-ER missiles. Work under this contract option is expected to be complete by June 2019. The award brings the total number of JASSM and JASSM-ER missiles delivered or under contract to more than 2,700. JASSM-ER received full-rate production approval in 2014. Recent JASSM milestones include a contract award for additional F-16C/D integration activities for Poland, the $302 million Lot 14 award and the $305 million Lot 13 contract for JASSM and JASSM-ER. Armed with a penetrating blast-fragmentation warhead, JASSM and JASSM-ER can be used in all weather conditions.
