Lockheed Martin completed flight testing of its Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) Extended range for the U.S. Air Force Initial Operational Test and Evaluation (IOT&E) flight testing program.
JASSM was successful on 20 of 21 total flights, designed to validate the full operational capability of the B-1B/JASSM-ER weapon system. The IOT&E completion allows Lockheed to move forward with full-rate production of the B-1B/JASSM-ER system later this year.
The company is looking to integrate the air-to-ground missile on its F-35 Lighting II fighter aircraft.
