I meant to say that Lockheed could design a new missile with the range of JASSM but carrying small munitions instead of a penetrating conventional warhead.

They could, but why bother?  JASSM seems to have been designed as basically a "bus" anyway, so switching out a new payload module should be pretty straightforward.  Payloads of submunitions and even small air vehicles (such as P-LOCAAS) have been studied since the beginning of the JASSM program.

Yeah, on second viewing a masters degree in Medieval Culture probably isn't  'in a relevant academic area'. That's me ruled out :)
Medieval cathedrals and some defence projects have much in common - take years, cost a fortune, faith based planning...

I would have thought that Lockheed would have designed and built a special variant of JASSM to carry small munitions instead of modifying the existing missile.  :-\

Isn't the way you get a "special variant" is to modify the existing missile?   ???

The weather looks good for Sunday's SpaceX Falcon 9 launch of the classified satellite for the NRO, according to Spaceflight Now.
