MIL-STD 1760 provides a common electrical and digital interface between weapons and aircraft. The standard MIL-STD-1760 connecter is used to transfer guidance information to weapons.
MIL-STD-1760 mission stores include, but are not limited to, the GBU-32 Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAM), the AGM-154 Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW), and the CBU-103, CBU-104, and CBU-105 Wind Corrected Munitions Dispensers (WCMDs). This 'connector allows aircraft to communicate with the JDAM weapon, and make it easier (cheaper) to add weapons in the future, such as the WCMD, JSOW, JASSM and any other weapons. The Small Bomb System is an integrated weapon system involving 1) a multiple carriage system compatible with the MIL-STD 1760 aircraft electrical interface and 2) a low-cost, all weather, accurately guided weapon capable of attacking fixed and relocatable targets.
