JSOW is a joint USAF-Navy family of medium-range, GPS/INS guided, standoff air-to-ground glide weapons.
It is used to attack a variety of soft and armored area targets during day and night and adverse weather conditions.
The baseline BLU-97 CEM variant is used against soft and area targets. The BLU-108 variant provides anti-armor capability. The AGM-154C incorporates an additional imaging IR seeker and is intended for use against hardened, stationary targets.
The new AGM-154C-1 variant adds moving, maritime strike capability to the baseline C variant, which reached IOC with the Navy in 2016.
The weapon completed operational flight testing on the F-35C in 2019, clearing the way for ongoing internal integration and testing on the F-35A.
