US media reported failing test missile defense system

76
CNN reports on the conduct of the US military tests of the missile defense system in the state of Hawaii. The test was conducted after a sensational error with sending SMS messages to local residents about a missile attack by a foreign state. The newsletter was made on January 13, and it led to the real panic among the local population.


The Pentagon confirms the information that the SM-3 rocket, which is part of the Ajis American missile defense system, was tested the day before. The rocket was produced from a ground installation to intercept a target that a military aircraft launched in the Hawaiian Islands.

As it turns out, the tests ended in a fiasco. The American rocket failed to hit the target. This is taking into account the fact that all its parameters were actually known in advance.

US media reported failing test missile defense system


It is noteworthy that officially the Pentagon has so far refused to comment on the results of the tests. Reports of failed interception are published in the US media with links to "sources close to conducting an anti-missile system test."

At the same time, the American media express frank discontent with the silence of the main military department about the failure. The message is that, with such a leaky missile defense system, President Trump and Defense Minister Mattis should not loudly declare their readiness to "destroy the North Korean regime."

            Probably such a result follows from the fact that this missile defense initially had other tasks:
            Ground components missile defense "Aegis" - dual-use combat system : other than performing the stated “missile defense missions” it can be used as a high-precision weapon for delivering a first strike on the territories of NATO's adversary countries.

            And as a result of this failure there is nothing strange?

          Air defense, like hair on a woman's pubis, covers, but does not protect.

          The trick is that they have nowhere to rush. This is our DEFENSE doctrine, unlike the United States. They’ll finish it, upgrade it, and then we’ll have to worry. It is still not clear what exactly there was for a missile defense, maybe defective and "blind" in both eyes. Knowing that there are sticks on the mattresses and on the nuclear "buttons", I will not be surprised at all.

        Interesting logic, if the target maneuvers, then apparently its fragments do not take? Or, according to your logic, on a maneuvering target, it’s easier to hit directly to destroy it with a kinetic blow, and not to hit any point within a conditional radius of 100 meters from the target and tear it down with a bunch of fragments.

      for aircraft, of course, more effective defeat fragmentation field. In small solitary objects, an “eye strike” is also effective - the fragments of the target and interceptor are a sign of defeat. That is, it is clearly visible whether the interception was successful or not. There is no obvious correspondence with missiles with a fragmentation warhead — it used to be fired in volleys, the second or third missile carried the debris of an already hit target (like U-2 Powers or U-2 Anderson). From the radar it’s not possible to really understand - either the target collapsed, or fragments from the undermining of the warhead missile

    In principle, you are right. It is much easier to hit a target with a formed field of fragments than a kinetic blow. In this case, a miss of several tens or hundreds of meters is not significant. But according to rumors, kinetic interception will also be implemented on our promising missile defense systems. so everything is quite complicated here.

    New missile SM-3 Block IIA failure again

    The air defense / missile defense system is always a game of Eagle and Tails. In this case, we only know the fact of a failed test. The reasons are unknown. In particular, target parameters are unknown. how much it corresponds in particular to the EPR of real warheads. The second one. what is the reason for the failure. The interceptor missile did not reach the target area or the interceptor itself did not collide with the target. There are many reasons and a priori to say that this is a leaky system.

    Urya-Urya. Failure to intercept and such a thoughtful statement. They would ask those who served on Kapyar whether they always had successful interceptions, despite the fact that the course, time, and other parameters were known. And one of the creators of our complexes after the failure of the tests there even died of a heart attack. But at the same time, no one says that our air defense is “leaky”.

    Everyone has setbacks - only the one who does nothing is not mistaken, let us recall our long-suffering Mace. Maybe Americans sooner or later will finish their missile defense to acceptable characteristics

    And we need it? No.
    Let it all be better so.

    They have been experiencing for a long time, it is already possible to draw conclusions - the American missile defense system is extremely ineffective, a single missile during exercises, everything is known in advance and the probability of interception is 0,5. What will happen with an unexpected massive attack, and maneuvering warheads, and false targets? The probability of interception will decrease by several times.

    Be careful with the statements. Now the experts of the sofa-bed system pro will run in and you will be detached. Why are you breaking templates for people ????

    Yes, I’m neat. And such patterns need to be broken without fail. Worse there is no "fool." Some will only hear the name “Aegis” immediately try to push the buttons and write that this system can also launch “Tomahawks”. I would like to see how this BIUS system from the launch of the MK-26 Tomahawks would launch ....
    And by the way, she can launch not only Tomahawks, but Harpoons, ASROKs and Standards too

      RCC "Harpoon" is also included in the "Aegis"? Hapuns, it’s kind of always their own. PU used

      Nope, Harpoon with MK-41 is not unified. Therefore, they want to replace it with 158C, which can be both vertical launchers and inclined ones.

      Harpoons have always had their own unique PU. The only NATO standardized ship missiles that are not integrated with the Mk.41 UVP. For them, they needed a quadruple MK.140 or MK.141, or. at worst, beam Mk.13 (for "Standard" SM1)
