Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) is a low-cost guidance kit that converts existing unguided free-fall bombs into accurately guided "smart" weapons. The JDAM kit consists of a tail section that contains a GPS/inertial navigation system and body strakes for additional stability and lift.
Boeing signed an agreement with Times Aerospace Korea LLC (TAK) to jointly develop a wing assembly for the Joint Direct Attack Munition Extended Range (JDAM ER). Under the teaming arrangement, Boeing and TAK will co-develop, test, and field a JDAM ER wing kit to convert the 2000-lb JDAM into a JDAM ER. Over the course of the 40-month development program, Boeing will provide support to TAK, including preparations for production of the JDAM ER wing assembly. Upon completion of the development and flight-test programs, TAK will become Boeing's primary supplier for the JDAM ER wing assembly.
