Farnborough 2014: Raytheon, Kongsberg team up to pitch Joint Strike Missile

15 July 2014

Raytheon Missile Systems and Kongsberg Defence Systems have cemented a teaming agreement, under which the two companies will co-develop and jointly market Kongsberg's Joint Strike Missile (JSM) to address future air-launched Offensive Anti-Surface Warfare (OASuW) needs.

The move comes as the US Navy is starting to consider potential solutions to meet its projected OASuW Increment 2 requirement. JSM, alongside a proposed OASuW evolution of the currently ship-launched Tomahawk Block IV cruise missile, forms a two-pronged strategy from Raytheon. It hopes that this will be able to compete with Lockheed Martin's Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM), which is a derivative of the AGM-158B Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile - Extended Range.
