    cruise missile agm-158 (jassm) The missile AGM-158 "air land" long-range designed to engage both fixed and mobile targets (air defense complexes, bunkers, large buildings, armored easily small and highly secure facilities, bridges) in simple and adverse weather conditions, day and night.

    AGM-158 is designed Corporation "Lockheed Martin Missiles" vramkahprogrammy JASSM (Joint Air to Surface Standoff Missile). The first flight test of the missile program JASSM held in January, the second - in April 2001

    as carriers of the missile used strategic bombers B-52H (12 missiles), B-1B (24 missiles), B-2 (16), F-15E (3), as well as tactical fighters F-16 C and D (2), F/A-18 (2), F-117 (2), F-35 JSF.

    U.S. Air Force conducted the rapid modernization of the B-52H, involves the installation of an integrated management system nonnuclear pendants (ICSMS), adapted for the hardware and software standard Mil-Std 1760, which is necessary to install a new generation of high-precision weapons, such as the Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM), Joint Standoff Weapon (JSW), Wind-Corrected Munition System and the Joint Air-to-Surface Missile.

    From mid-2008 began to come into service in the framework of a modernized JASSM ER sample of the rocket - in the AGM-158V with a maximum range of up to 1,300 km.

    Further development of missiles AGM-158 provides for the phased enhancement of its combat effectiveness through the use of modern technologies and the application of new design solutions. A major objective is to enable automatic correction of the inertial control system based on continuous updating of targeting a variety of external sources in real time, it is believed, will allow to hit mobile ground and surface targets without the use of expensive homing systems, and retarget the missile in flight. These tasks will be performed by the interaction through a unified data network onboard guidance system, an aircraft carrier and aircraft reconnaissance and control system with blows "Dzhistars».


    cruise missile agm-158 (jassm) The rocket was built by the normal aerodynamic scheme - nizkoplan with folding wings. Its construction is widely used today for composite materials based on carbon fibers. As the power plant is used J402 turbojet engine with improved compressor and fuel system. In the combined guidance system along with thermal GOS borrowed from planning to bomb AGM-130 (works on final guidance), using inertial control system with correction according KRNS NAVSTAR and firmware autonomous target recognition. For missile guidance to the target correlation algorithms are used in comparing the received IR - range image of the object detected (pritselevaniya area) with the available memory in the onboard computer reference signatures, which also allows you to automatically select the optimal point pritselevaniya.

    When starting on a longer range missiles introduces the problem of the current location of the rocket. This information is needed, in particular, to determine whether the missile hit the target. The current design includes a transmitter (25 W) type BIA (Bomb Impact Assessment) and the antenna device of the missile body to allow communication on strategic reconnaissance aircraft RC-135V and W at speeds up to 9600 bit / s in the frequency range 391.7-398.3 MHz.

    Depending on the type of target used cassette or unitary warhead (BSc). Currently installed on the rocket warhead betonoboynymi J-1000. Warhead casing made of a metal alloy based on tungsten steel. Explosive mass - 109 kg. CU J-1000 at a speed of 300 m / s can penetrate into the soil to a depth of an average density of 6.1 to 24.4 m and punching concrete slabs total thickness 1.2-2.1m. For gear cassette warhead may be used ammunition BLU-97 GEM (combined action).

    Shelf life without routine maintenance - up to 20 years.

    Upgraded version of the missile - AGM-158V made keeping weight and size (starting weight and weight warhead) prototype - AGM-158A. In this optimized layout missiles, allowing increased fuel capacity and more economical set turbojet engine instead of the previous single-circuit. Level of unification of the basic elements of SD AGM-158A and in the AGM-158V is estimated at more than 80%.
