Australia has integrated the AGM-158 JASSM missile onto its F/A-18 aircraft. This paper describes how ground, flight testing and analyses were used to quantify the aeroelastic envelope and the associated captive carriage vibration environment. How flight vibration results were assessed versus qualification testing is conveyed as are lessons learned.
