Please excuse the fuzzy photo. I had to maneuver my cell phone camera over and behind a model of the ADVENT engine on the AFRL booth to get this shot.
We all know about the precision-guided, JDAM glide-bomb. Flightglobal also has reported that Korea is developing an extended-range version of JDAM, which includes an attached wingkit.
But this is the first mention I’ve ever seen of a JDAM-ER missile, which implies some form of rocket or air-breathing propulsion. More intriguingly, the picture was posted on a slide showing applications for the AFRL’s various propulsion development programs.
