Pentagon: Hypersonic aircraft developed by the Russian Federation and China represent a "difficult target" for missile defense

29
The Pentagon acknowledged that hypersonic gliding aircraft, which are developing the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China, represent a "complex goal" for missile defense systems, reports RIA News The Bloomberg news agency quoting a report by the US military intelligence services.

Hypersonic gliding aircraft - maneuverable devices that fly at supersonic speeds (five or more times faster than the speed of sound) and keep most of the flight lower than the average ballistic missile
- says the report of the Intelligence Center of the Air Force and Space Forces (National Air and Space Intelligence Center) and the Defense Intelligence Ballistic Missile Analysis Committee, which was made available to the agency before publication.

Pentagon: Hypersonic aircraft developed by the Russian Federation and China represent a "difficult target" for missile defense


The combination of high speed, maneuverability and relatively low altitude makes them a challenging target for missile defense systems.
- the document says.

In its report, the military intelligence services predict that Russia will retain the greatest power of the strategic missile forces among foreign countries, the agency said. In addition, military intelligence services believe that "China still has the most active and diverse ballistic missile development program in the world," and Iran will soon be able to deploy intercontinental ballistic missiles.

In general, according to the Pentagon, technologies for the development of ballistic and cruise missiles in different countries of the world, from North Korea and Iran, to Russia and China are progressing, and therefore the potential threat to the United States increases.

Last December, the Washington Free Beacon reported that the Pentagon would soon have to develop an effective anti-missile program that could cope with new high-tech threats, in particular hypersonic missiles that Russia and China are developing. According to the publication, currently the US missile defense programs, including those intended to intercept long-range and short-range missiles, have been designed to strike ballistic missiles moving along a predictable trajectory. Missiles that fly at high speed — several times faster than the speed of sound — and changing course, cannot be tracked and shot down by current US missile defense systems.

    Well, for this missile defense system they are not goals at all .. They just won’t notice how it flew ..

      They notice, do not notice, flies - does not fly, what and where flies - does not play any role. The main thing is financing for the next modernization of missile defense. And if physicists were too lazy to create a perpetual motion machine, then financiers have already done it for a long time, refuel with bucks and use it.

        Turn off the electricity to the financiers and they (the financiers) will die out in a short time.
        Financiers are creators like earthworms.
        And do not drive on physicists. Their "laziness" allows you to write comments on sites.

          This "plays" for developers and for the military, and they in the created, modern system are only two types of actors on a common stage, which are controlled by financiers.

          You are mistaken, Vladimir. For more than 2000 years, financiers not only survived without electricity, but also managed to crush almost the whole world for another 200 years before the discoveries of Faraday.

      This is especially “good” news for Russia, with which Iran had never had an equal relationship, and until 79 Iran was a US client in general, and what will happen next to one “Kiselyov”, and how Dmitry Anatolyevich will probably not forget them , and in Russia, "every new broom sweeps in a new way" both in the house and in the yard.

    Yes! But now they will die out! and with them your denyuzhki from the card will sink into oblivion. But this is not about that, but about the fact that there is no protection against hypersound. Yes, and the rocket itself without email. you will not start.

    Do not underestimate the enemy.
    Hypersonic (atmospheric aircraft for the missile defense system is quite a serious goal due to the fact that the flight altitude of such an aircraft is too low for most missile interceptors of the missile defense system. And for missiles of the air defense system it is too big. But the problem is solved, especially since the GZLA as such not yet, only tested and not always successful
    The issue of maneuverability is again quite open. Everything will depend on the type of engines on such an aircraft. With a direct-flow tank, you don’t particularly maneuver, missile - there you will need to carry a supply of not only fuel, but also an oxidizer. And this is an increase in overall dimensions.

    so the Americans are right in some ways. Hyper for air defense / missile defense systems is a rather complicated target
