GBU-30 Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM)
The first US order for the GBU-30, using the the smaller 500-lb. Mk. 82 bomb, is expected to be a 2003 contract for deliveries in 2004. The B-2 bomber will be a primary user after they are equipped with the smart-bomb rack, which holds 80 bombs.
The GBU-30/B 2000lb JDAM, which was to be manufactured by Martin-Marietta, was cancelled.
