Kongsberg orders additional JSM electronic controls
Kongsberg is acquiring an extra 180 Passive Radio Frequency Sensor (PRS) units from BAE Systems Australia for the Joint Strike Missile (JSM).
This completes the first full-rate production order for 200 PRS sensors, BAE Systems Australia stated.
The Kongsberg JSM is a fifth-generation, long-range, precision-guided stand-off missile system for installation on fixed-wing aircraft, including the F-35. It has a 230kg HE blast-fragmentation warhead, and a range of 185-555km depending on the profile, according to Shephard Defence Insight.
JSM is ‘highly suited to meet the RAAF’s [Royal Australian Air Force’s] F-35 Maritime Strike requirements under Project 3023 Phase 2’, BAE Systems Australia claimed on 21 May.
The missile is also a candidate for the Royal Australian Navy in Project Sea 1300, the company added.
