JSOW C-1 is designed to help U.S. squadrons engage moving maritime and stationary ground targets through an air-to-ground network, the Naval Air Systems Command said Wednesday.

“Formal declaration of full operational capability for JSOW C-1 is the final step in a phased approach to introducing this weapon and its capabilities to the fleet,” said Navy Cmdr. Sam Messer, JSOW deputy program manager.

The weapon features global positioning system/inertial navigation system guidance, terminal infrared seeker and Link 16 data link systems.

The service branch declared initial operating capability for JSOW C-1 last year and deployed the platform to various tests and exercises such as Valiant Shield 2016 SINKEX, Northern Edge 2017 and Talisman Sabre 2017.
