U.S. Navy, Raytheon Achieve Program Milestone on New Joint Standoff Weapon Variant
TUCSON, Ariz., Oct. 30, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The U.S. Navy and Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) completed a critical design review of the Joint Standoff Weapon C-1, achieving a major program milestone.

JSOW C-1 adds moving maritime target capability and a two-way data link to the combat-proven JSOW family.

"JSOW C-1 is needed because it brings critical capabilities [to the warfighter]," said Commander Andrew "Chunder" Kessler, JSOW deputy program manager for JSOW in the Navy's Precision Strike Weapons program office. "It will represent the world's first network-enabled weapon when it is delivered to the warfighter in 2010."
