Joint Stand Off Weapon

The Joint Stand Off Weapon (JSOW) is a family of air-to-ground weapons that utilize a Global Position System (GPS) targeting capability and an airframe that satisfies standoff requirements for attacking targets from outside enemy point defenses during day, night and adverse weather conditions.

The containers used to ship and store the JSOW use a welded, double-wall extruded aluminum sidewall All-Up-Round (AUR) design. This container's features include; a complex cradle mounted on shock absorbing pads, the ability to interface with the weapon from the outside of the container to program the mission into the missiles GPS computer and provides environmental protection to ensure JSOW meets the required 20 year storage life. These containers also have the ability to be reused, stacked and handled by forklift or cranes.
