Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAM) is a Joint Service weapon that uses an onboard GPS-aided Inertial Navigation System (INS) Guidance Set with a MK 82, MK 83, MK 84, BLU-109, BLU-110, BLU-111, BLU-117, BLU-126 (Navy) or BLU-129 warhead. The Guidance Set, when combined with a warhead and appropriate fuze, forms a PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 72341 JDAM Guided Bomb Unit (GBU). The JDAM Guidance Set gives these bombs adverse weather capability with improved accuracy. The JDAM weapon can be delivered from modest standoff ranges at high or low altitudes against a variety of land and surface targets during the day or night. After release, JDAM autonomously guides to a target, using the resident GPS-aided INS guidance system. JDAM is capable of receiving target coordinates via preplanned mission data from the delivery aircraft, by onboard aircraft sensors (i.e. FLIR, Radar, etc) during captive carry, or from a third party source via manual or automated aircrew cockpit entry. The KMU-556 F/B, KMU557 F/B are the tail kits for the GBU-31, the KMU-572 is the tail kit for the GBU38. The JDAM as an All Up Round is UNCLASSIFIED; technical data for JDAM is classified up to SECRET. 2. Detector Sensor Unit (DSU)-38A/B is a laser-illuminated target detector that adds a Precision Laser Guidance Set (PLGS) to inventory JDAMs, giving the weapon system optional semi-active laser guidance in addition to its other GPS/INS guidance modes. The DSU38A/B is a DSU-33 (proximity fuze) form-factored passive laser seeker that can be easily installed in the field to the front of existing JDAM weapons and is connected to the Guidance Set via an externally mounted strap-on harness kit. The DSU-38 provides an additional capability to engage mobile targets moving up to 70 mph. The addition of the DSU-38 Laser sensor combined with additional cabling and mounting hardware turns a standard GBU-38 JDAM into a GBU-54 Laser JDAM. The DSU-38 hardware is UNCLASSIFIED; technical data and other documentation are classified up to SECRET. 3.
