The Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) is our high-quantity, air-to-ground weapon of choice because of its accuracy, reliability, and effectiveness. The JDAM program delivered over 46,000 guidance tailkits in FY19 to meet the needs of the Joint Force a nd Foreign Military Sales (FMS) partners. The Department of the Air Force also received an Urgent Operational Need (UON) for an advanced variant, known as SABR-Y, which incorporated enhanced GPS jamming resistance. We plan to order 25,000 tailkits in FY20 with future procurements shifting completely to the advanced SABR-Y variant.
