The AGM-159 was a high precision cruise missile design proposed in 1996 by the Boeing (McDonnell-Douglas) company as a contender in the U.S. Air Force's JASSM project. It was intended to be able to penetrate advanced air defense systems, such as the Russian S-300 surface-to-air missile system. The weapon was intended to be carried by long range weapons platforms such as the B-2 Spirit and the B-1 Lancer. Development halted after Lockheed Martin's AGM-158 was selected for further development in 1998.[1]
