Not-so-curious acronym for a missile:


"Lockheed Martin and members of the Department of Defense celebrated
the expansion of the Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM)
production facility today at its Pike County Operations in Troy, AL.
The expansion allows JASSM production to increase to a rate of 40
missiles per month."
