77th Bomb Squadron, 2,000 pound Joint Direct Attack Munition
Senior Airman Phillip Knight from Sunnyvale, Calif., a weapons loader
with the 77th Bomb Squadron, here prepares an inert 2,000 pound Joint
Direct Attack Munition. JDAMs use the global positioning system for precision
guidance. Iraq and other potential adversaries may have the ability to
jam GPS signals, but Air Force war planners are not too worried about
