Anti-missile radar of a new type of US missile defense will be placed in Alaska

The American company Lockheed Martin presented a draft radar for the selection of ballistic targets LRDR. According to the publication Defense Aerospace, the US Missile Defense Agency has already approved it and the company intends to begin production.


Anti-missile radar of a new type of US missile defense will be placed in Alaska


The radar will be created on the basis of gallium nitride. This will significantly improve the signal-to-noise performance compared to other modern radars based on gallium arsenide. The advantages of the new system - the radar will be able to detect air targets at large distances and heights, while consuming less power. And yet - he will be able to distinguish the nuclear unit from a false target, writes the American edition

Equipment testing has already begun. The construction of the radar is supposed to begin in 2019, and in 2020, the radar will go into service with the American army. They plan to deploy it at the Kliar Air Force Base in Alaska and equip it with electronic suppression protection. The radar will be connected to the US missile defense system, it will send data to anti-missile missiles in Alaska and in California, reports RG-Sila

    Yes, no question Build, select targets. Only then try to bring down a maneuverable target

      All the best for protection
      What is so special about it? Just the next stage of technology development

        Yeah, and the location was not chosen by chance: this is to protect against Una missiles, right? wink

          I can’t know for sure.
          But I think that to protect against all countries that possess nuclear weapons and advanced (promising) means of their delivery.
          And therefore, to protect against your country, too (Russia). Sorry request

            And you don’t need to know exactly, just take into account a couple of maaalenky nuances:
            1. Over the past couple of centuries, how many times have Russia and the United States attacked someone.
            2. How many US bases, etc. around Russia, and how many Russia around the USA.
            and then try to defend each other. yes

              Approximately the same amount. +/ - several military operations
              How many US bases, etc. around Russia, and how many Russia around the USA.

              Some country has funds for their maintenance (and the local population supports it). Some of them do not have enough for this. By the way. The population of which country near the USA wants to see the Russian army on its territory? Mexico? No. Canada? This is ridiculous .Even Cuba does not think about it

                It's funny to think the opposite.
                Tell me more precisely - in which country next to it the United States wants to see the Russian army.

            from your country too (Russia) .Sorry

            Why apologize? I openly say: the USA is the enemy of mankind. Therefore, let them build radars for themselves, maybe they will come in handy. Although, when this nation of killers becomes an outcast for the whole world, this is unlikely to help them.

    Information - fake war, to draw the enemy into an arms race. Nothing new, the Cold War did not stop. The Americans launch the Chinese to Alaska, and at the same time install super-duper radars there. tongue

    And yet - he will be able to distinguish a nuclear unit from a false target, writes the American edition

    1. So the existing radars now cannot do this. This radar will be able to respond to false targets in 2020. What kind of missile defense do they have now, if they cannot tell false targets?
    2. So it’s not clear why the new radar can distinguish false targets?

      But this can be done by radar and sensors mounted on a maneuvering killer apparatus, which destroys an ICBM warhead with a direct hit.
      Americans want to know about false goals in advance, not at the last moment.

        So the target is destroyed (ICBM) by a blank, but it does not maneuver. Here, the whole point is precisely in sorting the TRUE goal at once, against the background of many false ones.

          Today, Americans plan to launch "buses"
          with killers towards the warheads of ICBMs. There have not been trials yet.
          A false target, albeit of the same shape, but it is several times smaller in mass, and they learned to cut them.
          The killer can skip the freely false target and “steer” gas rudders towards the real one.
          Of course, there are only a few seconds for all this. Probability of error and just
          miss is great. But if there is a chance to save the millionth city from destruction, then
          who does not use this chance of salvation?
          Imagine yourself not in their place: ICBMs fly to Russian cities, you have a missile defense system. Do not you use it, even if it is not 100%?

        Is that what they told you or read to where?
        Goal selection is still the problem of the problems.
        Therefore, the calculation for the last section, where the false ones are eliminated themselves, well, or in the accelerating section.
        It request the most simple, not expensive and reliable options

    In our Russian Alaska, they’ll put all kinds of rubbish without our knowledge, and when we will have to clean it up from there for them! !!

    If so, then this is a major breakthrough in this direction. And this means that the Americans are really investing in research, and that means that in other areas they also have something in the blanket. You can learn from them. Or maybe it's Blah Blah Blah, in order to scare us?

    Of course it is better to know in advance because then it may be a bit late. And so now they do not have time to do it.
    I have big doubts that the radar (if any) and the IF sensors on the killer can do what a large radar on the ground does not. At a speed of rapprochement with the target of 10-12 km / s, they will have no more than 3-4 seconds for recognizing false targets.

      And now they know how, but there is almost no time for reaction.
      They have a three-level missile defense system. First shoot from Alaska
      (interception in the middle of the way). Then shoot thaad out
      California towards (at the final stage of the trajectory),
      then Patriots (already at the last moment “above the roofs”)
      But three levels - only to protect California (from the Chinese
      and S. Koreans). There is no protection from Russia yet.
