US Navy Completes Raytheon JSOW Missile Flight Test

The United States Naval Forces (Navy) successfully conducted flight tests of JSOW (Joint Standoff Weapon - joint weapons beyond the reach of weapons) with a full combat load. The missiles were launched from the F / A-18F Super Hornet multi-role fighter to demonstrate combat readiness. New missiles to combat ground targets were developed by Raytheon.

During the tests, two JSOW II C air-to-ground missiles were launched from a distance of approximately 25000 feet (7600 meters); they flew along a predetermined trajectory before destroying targets, which are models of underground structures or natural caves.

Raytheon’s Missile Systems JSOW program director, Celeste Mor, said that test launches had once again confirmed JSOW’s ability to deliver decisive impact to the most difficult ground targets that can only be encountered during hostilities.

“Sea pilots used the fire power of JSOW missiles in a realistic tactical scenario of the destruction of an underground structure, which also included intensive radio resistance,” said Mohr.

"The result is two direct hits, and all this is a consequence of the use of advanced technologies."

"The JSOW C armament complex is designed to offer naval sailors maximum and flexible capabilities to combat important ground targets."

The inclusion of a GPS-inertial navigation system with highly efficient guidance algorithms in the JSOW C weapon system will allow the fleet have an effective means of combating particularly important targets at launch ranges of about 70 nautical miles.

The JSOW C rocket is also equipped with a thermal imaging homing head, which allows to significantly improve the accuracy on the final part of the trajectory.

The self-guided version of JSOW C-1 can work around the clock in all weather conditions. It offers updated capabilities for dealing with moving sea targets, while the common data channel Strike Common Weapon Datalink allows you to transfer information about the target directly to the rocket.

The latest tests were carried out as part of a contract worth 80,5 million dollars issued to Raytheon for the production of 200 serial missiles to those ten AGM-154C-1 JSOW, manufactured in January 2014 of the year.

    Most likely they are transported by aircraft carriers, so it’s better to sink it so that they do not have time to hang it)

      There is a UPAB 1500 but a range of 50-70 km. In general, the range of controlled American bombs is achieved by the engine and light materials.

            It didn’t work out cheaper for us simply because the production came out knee-deep. American counterparts (JDAM) cost 50-100 thousand dollars for ammunition.

      However, the air defense is still included in the affected area. And it is also necessary to fly to the launch zone!

        The launch range is 150 km "engine bombs". What kind of "air defense zones" are there? The bomb itself needs to be shot down.

        PBC-500U SPBE-Planning bomb cluster "Basalt" in essence is the domestic analogue of the American weapon system JSOW. Previously created by Bazalt, the RBK-500 one-time bomb cartridges and blocks for KMGU aviation containers with fragmentation, concrete, cumulative, incendiary, cluster and self-aiming combat elements (SPBE), as well as various mines, are an effective means of defeating objects of aviation, missile and armored technicians. The effectiveness of such weapons is several times higher compared to monoblock bombs. With the same caliber, it takes 10 times less ammunition to hit similar targets with RBC and PBC, and their energy is optimized for a specific target.

        The PBK-500U cartridge with SPBE-K self-aiming warheads is a further development of the RBK-500 series of single-shot bomb cartridges towards the implementation of more efficient use from front-line aircraft (such as Su-34 and others). It is designed for round-the-clock and all-weather use without an aircraft entering the air defense range of object-based air defense systems with delivery to the target with high accuracy of combat elements. Planning bomb cluster made in 500 kg caliber and provides for the defeat of armored vehicles, air defense systems, command posts and military installations having thermal or radar contrast relative to the underlying surface in conditions of natural and artificial interference from heights in the range of 100-14 000 m when dumped from the carrier onto speeds of 700–1100 km / h. The range of application from a height of 10 km is about 50 km. Cassette length - 3100 mm, diameter - 450 mm.

          Oh yes ... This is the Yankee response that should have been back in 2010. take into service ... But they still ride at exhibitions as "a promising model of weapons for the Air Force."
          PS: This "promising" ammunition is purely anti-tank, the SPBE-D you mentioned works only for heat-contrast targets.

          This can be pulled from 50 kilometers, the one from 130-200 km. In general, the wings and the engine will not hurt us either.

            In general, the wings and the engine will not hurt us either.
            There are four basic versions of modernization of various levels of equipment. The first option involves equipping the bomb with the so-called “simple” IPC. This is a purely aerodynamic solution that allows self-stabilization of the bomb and correction of wind drift - for this, only a simple planning and correction module is installed, which is attached to the bomb body, and electronic control modules are not introduced. Moreover, the cost of the IPC kit will not be higher than the cost of the bomb itself. In this configuration, it is possible to use aerial bombs at the same ranges of up to 6–8 km, but from extremely low altitudes of 50–100 m, and not from usual 3-4 km FABs, where the aircraft is very vulnerable to air defense.

            The second option provides, in addition to installing the MPC from the standard set, also equipping with a hinged small-sized control unit (ANN), which allows to stabilize the bomb in flight and to withdraw to a given area of ​​application. This option, while maintaining the specified accuracy, will provide a discharge range of 12–15 km.

            The third option is to expand the IPC with ANN units, the accuracy of which is relatively small, with additional drives and a GPS and GLONASS satellite navigation receiver. This equipment option will increase the effective launch range up to 40-60 km, depending on the mode and speed of the carrier. The accuracy of ABSP with IPC in this configuration will be no worse than 10 m.

            In the fourth version, in addition to the MPK and the control module, it is planned to place a propulsion unit with a pulsating air-jet engine on the bomb, which will increase the effective range to 80-100 km.

          in fact, is a domestic analogue

          This is an ordinary cluster bomb to work on areas, how can it be an analogue of a homing projectile designed to destroy a single target? Judging by the description, these are completely, completely different systems

            I would add that the JSOW C-1 range is more than 100 km, and the JSOW -ER range is more than 240 miles (more than 400 km), it seems to me somehow difficult to compare with the PBC-500U ...

      The first is due to the ratio of its own mass to the warhead mass. And the second, anyway, the bomb plans to reach the target, despite the presence of its aerodynamic surfaces, as a means of correcting the trajectory, and the engine, as a means of increasing range.

    The funniest thing about aircraft carriers was proved by ours in 2006 or 2007 (I don't remember exactly) when two of our fighters flew over their aircraft carrier many times and conditionally "sunk" it. As the Americans themselves wrote, when they noticed our planes, the admiral gave the order to take off, but received the answer that the first plane could take off only in 2 minutes =)) Moreover, the aircraft carrier was not alone, but as part of an aircraft carrier group.
    In 2006, a Chinese diesel submarine (sort of built according to our designs) not far from Taiwan surfaced directly among the US aircraft carrier group.
    Also about the vaunted American Ijes. From the moment a target is detected, it takes 90 seconds to aim at non-missiles due to synchronization with GPRS satellites. In principle, everything that flies less than 90 seconds to the goal, she is unable to shoot down.
    ZY Aircraft carrier groups are capable of fighting only with the "banana" republics.

    but it would also be nice for us to have this.

    It is absolutely true, why not try to produce here or at least copy like China weapons that have shown their effectiveness. And then there are some so "patriotic" that a priori consider everything that has been done in NATO countries, full of Mr.. Then, following their logic, it would be correct to ask: "Why the heck do we need French thermal imagers?"
