BAE Systems to support stealth technologies for Joint Strike Missile
BAE Systems has won a £3 million contract to support Kongsberg's Joint Strike Missile (JSM) system.
This will see BAE provide radar-absorbing material and sensor development and technology integration expertise for the JSM, the manufacturer said in a 16 July company statement.
The JSM is currently being adapted by Japan and Norway and can be stored internally by F-35A jets for anti-ship and land attack purposes.
Shephard's Defence Insight notes that the JSM is a multirole version of the Naval Strike Missile and has a 230kg HE blast-fragmentation warhead with a range of between 185-555km, depending on profile.
The latest stealth technologies contract follows a May announcement that BAE Systems Australia will provide Kongsberg with an additional 180 Passive Radio Frequency Sensor (PRS) units for the JSM.
