Summary
The Air Force and Navy are developing the Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) to attack, at nearly any time, high-value, well-defended targets while allowing the launch aircraft to stay outside the range of enemy defenses. We reviewed the JASSM acquisition plan under our basic legislative responsibilities because (1) the program has congressional interest, (2) it is a major acquisition program, and (3) we wanted to determine how the Air Force plans to overcome the difficulties in meeting stringent requirements similar to those of the canceled Tri-Service Standoff Attack Missile (TSSAM). This report, which contains a matter for congressional consideration, is addressed to you because your committees have jurisdiction over this area. This report discusses (1) the Air Force's plan to use a new acquisition process that balances capability and affordability requirements for acquiring JASSM, (2) schedule and cost risks because of the immaturity of essential technology and the complexity of integrating JASSM with multiple aircraft, (3) the Air Force's plan to acquire 35 pilot production missiles early in development that may not be needed, and (4) the need to strengthen the Navy's commitment to the program
