It's a hypersonic glider. It uses a missile, usually an IRBM or something similar, that boosts it to the upper atmosphere, and accelerates it to above Mach 3-4+. After release it glides and accelerates to mach 5+.
They are requesting almost $91M USD for development of a "high speed glide bomb". They don't give details beyond that, but that sounds suspiciously like it could be a boost-glide weapon.

TLAMS are easy to intercept weapons, Boost glide weapons are simi cutting edge weapons technologies incorporated into a small effective weapon
