The Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) System provides an improved air-to-ground missile capability for rotary wing aircraft and unmanned aerial systems. The JAGM is an aviation-launched, precision-guided munition for use against high-value stationary, moving and relocatable land and naval targets. JAGM utilizes a multimode seeker to provide precision point and fire-and-forget targeting day or night in adverse weather, battlefield obscured conditions, and against a variety of countermeasures. A multipurpose warhead provides lethal effects against a range of target types, from armored vehicles, thin-skinned vehicles and maritime patrol craft to urban structures and field fortifications. JAGM delivers the joint services a single air-to-ground missile with improved lethality, operational flexibility and a reduced logistics footprint.
BENEFIT TO THE SOLDIER
The JAGM provides the warfighter the ability to destroy high-value stationary, moving and relocatable land and naval targets from standoff range day or night, in adverse weather and in battlefield-obscured conditions.
