US General: You need an orbital radar to counter the hypersonic missiles of the Russian Federation

88
The US military commented on the statement of Russian President Vladimir Putin about the presence of Russia hypersonic weapons. According to the Chief of the Strategic Command (Stratcom) of the US Armed Forces, General John Heithen, the US needs to “allocate only a few billion dollars to create an orbital radar.” General Heiten noted that ground-based detection in current conditions is not enough.


General Heithen:
The new orbital radar will give us the opportunity to track the rocket in the middle of its trajectory when the warhead is detached. Such a radar will allow tracking and launches of hypersonic rockets.


According to Heyten, he does not understand why the space component of American security had previously been “practically not funded.”

Heithen:
We somehow can not start it all. Instead, (financing the orbital radar project), our military create an infrastructure against ballistic nuclear threats. While we were building, our opponents relied on hypersound and devices with increased maneuvering function.

At the same time, the White House said that "Putin spoke about what everyone already knew." According to State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert, Russia "has been developing destabilizing weapons for more than ten years." At the same time, the State Department did not comment on the fact that Russia began to work on such weapons after the United States unilaterally decided to withdraw from the anti-ballistic missile treaty. By the way, the president of Russia spoke about this on the eve.

        Ha ha ha laughing Now, convulsive attempts will begin on yesterday’s novelty of weapons to come up with an answer. There is something to fall into grief for. Orbital radar. What nonsense. What a convenient target for the first strike. Yes, generally hang a satellite with a charge nearby. And all of you orbital radar. Then it will be more fun.

          Why?

          Dagger - real 100%. This is an old topic. The late RP regularly shone OKBshny MiG with a throw layout in Zhukovsky. The only question is whether they brought it or not. That's all. This is for faith only. But the product is in Iron.

          Underwater vehicle - showed Harpsichord-2P. This is a video of his presentation, if that, which was still in 16 or 15. It is real, in iron and even more so tested.

          Sarmat is quite real, not today, but the topic is lively.

          A laser is most likely an experimental or partially prototype model of a high-power Boeing type mobile laser. The goal - the destruction of small UAVs attacking the base of mines, missiles. But they tormented him - he only gives out characteristics in clear weather at low humidity, but in the fog he has a catastrophic drop in power over a distance, and they run into that. There are already problems with fundamental physics - therefore, most likely the domestic will be similar.


          About hypersound - x / s. The Americans, for example, fly quite successfully. The Chinese seem to have too. But this is still in the R&D stage. Perhaps they were overtaken. Perhaps they embellished it - giving out successful tests of the layout as a finished product. Who knows?

          As for missiles with a nuclear engine - there they came up against why. The topic is old. Even in 60x, the Americans did their mega-rocket in direct flow. But then they decided to make more medium-range missiles and deploy them in Europe.

            Their direct-flowing "Pluto" could irradiate more Americans themselves than harm the USSR. In addition, the MiG-25 was already developed against it.

    “I read quotes from Putin’s statement. There is some kind of confusion: such things are impossible, and in general are not needed. You can’t put a nuclear engine on a cruise missile. Yes and no such engines. There is one such megawatt-class engine in development, but it is a space engine and, of course, no tests could be carried out in 2017 - it is good if they test such an installation in 2027. To say with hindsight that tests were carried out last year ... And where are the decades of study? There were some similar developments in the Soviet Union, but all ideas to put nuclear engines on air rather than space means - airplanes, cruise missiles - were discarded in the 50s of the last century. ”

      What are you saying! You might think that at the NIIAR in Dimitrovgrad, people pay salaries for "beautiful eyes." A controlled reactor, a commonplace heat source, a turbojet compressor drives air through the core and directs it to the turbine. The engine will be simpler than a modern turbojet engine. In place of fuel tanks, you can set all sorts of "happiness" for electronic warfare, since there are no problems with electricity. Well, the temperature in the core can be kept in the region of 800 degrees, this is nuclear business. I won’t be surprised that at the Sarmat a propulsion system of any degree would also be nuclear.

        That is just the point, that everything should be driven through the active zone. As I understand it, these missiles are in extreme cases, when you can no longer think about infecting the atmosphere. Actually, like thermonuclear underwater robots with warheads on 100 megatons.
        In a statement by Amerov’s general, I’m more interested: why, to put it mildly, do you need an orbital radar? Missile launches with a hypersonic warhead can also be tracked from the ground. What should I do? Tracked, well done. And what to intercept?

    Oh, damn it, of course .... If there was information about Sarmat and the hypersonic equipment of ICBMs, then about the KR with a nuclear engine and lasers - neither sleep, nor spirit. The first time the Dagger appeared on stage in real form. Or did someone before this see how the MIG-31BM works on the ground with a rocket or destroys a target ship? Here's what to lie for?
    If ours really put a nuclear engine in the Kyrgyz Republic, although I have little idea of ​​how (the video shows jet exhaust), this is a real breakthrough in nuclear energy. Imagine a nuclear reactor with a cylinder size of several meters and a diameter of no more than 80 cm ... And not just a reactor, but also an electricity generator. Something even hard to believe.

At ground stations it is clear water to the boiler, heating, steam to the turbine, then to the generator. And in the Kyrgyz Republic, where are the water supplies from? It is not thermocouples that they produce electricity.

          I have not missed anything. This engine is the same turbojet in which the combustion chamber is replaced by AZ.
          And the output turbine is the link of transformation. Too lazy to think?

            That is, the working fluid does not need an oxidizing agent? And in general, the chemical reaction of combustion does not occur?
            Too lazy to think?

            I will ask without caustic remarks.

              In the case of the reactor essno is not needed. Heating is not due to fuel combustion in the oxidizer. Air is needed only as a working fluid. Thinking and direct-flow such. For hypersound. Only applicable already beyond the bounds and how to test is not clear. During operation, infection almost does not occur, provided that the fuel rods are tight, but it is very noticeable during destruction. Direct-flow in general will have one AZ .. No turbines, nothing ...

        I attached a photo of the American Tori2 below.

        In general - the Americans in my opinion ran into competition. That is, classic rocket launchers provided the same target defeat in the USSR with ICBMs and medium-range missiles, which then rapidly evolved. And the expensive Pluto project - was closed.

            Well, there are two ways.

            For example, in combat equipment - this is an additional striking power.
            Now, if you crap little by little over Europe, then even calm vassals can rebel. Yes there.

            If it were not for the explosive progress of other means (cheaper ones at that), then the project would have been completed.

              With the detonation of a thermonuclear warhead due to the dense neutron flux, it is possible to cause detonation of the reactor core.

    Radar can also be suppressed in orbit.
    IF range more reliable will allow the selection of targets.

    How to understand the head of the Institute for Space Policy Ivan Moiseev: Cruise missiles with nuclear power plants, which President Putin announced as president, cannot exist in nature, you cannot put a nuclear engine on a cruise missile - there are no such engines. No tests could be carried out in 2017
    By the way, German expert in the field of rocketry, Robert Schmucker, also called Putin’s statement implausible.
    Who will use the statement of the president of Russia is the Pentagon, which has a budget of military expenditures of 611 billion dollars (Russia - 70), now we must wait for an increase ...

      Why? Direct-flow nuclear engine is quite real. Even for 60's.
      And if Orion was cut at the stage of cartoons and presentations - for it took 1000000500000 million dollars (just like under Bush, the new Orion was cut).
      That Pluto was completely brought to the stage of throwing tests and the operating time of a nuclear engine at the stand.

    You’re greatly mistaken, in the USSR there were already such TOPAZ-1, BUK engines. This is a development of the 70s.

    These engines were of a slightly different plan. If not mistaken, thermoelectric. the main task is to generate energy for the airborne radar. Here we should talk about a nuclear power plant, that is, a nuclear jet engine

    Quote: 2112vda
    What are you saying! You might think that at the NIIAR in Dimitrovgrad, people pay salaries for "beautiful eyes." A controlled reactor, a commonplace heat source, a turbojet compressor drives air through the core and directs it to the turbine. The engine will be simpler than a modern turbojet engine. In place of fuel tanks, you can set all sorts of "happiness" for electronic warfare, since there are no problems with electricity. Well, the temperature in the core can be kept in the region of 800 degrees, this is nuclear business. I won’t be surprised that at the Sarmat a propulsion system of any degree would also be nuclear.

    And how does your electronic warfare system work when the reactor does not have serious protection. How will radio elements work in radiation conditions?
    I'm afraid that I will disappoint you. There are no nuclear engines at any stage. Fiction is still nuclear rocket engines that can raise at least some level. Commonplace chemical rocket engine

    In a statement by Amerov’s general, I’m more interested: why, to put it mildly, do you need an orbital radar? Missile launches with a hypersonic warhead can also be tracked from the ground. What should I do? Tracked, well done. And what to intercept?

    Well, the decision on orbital radar is not stupid at all. Radar reconnaissance satellites exist, hang a radar with a sufficiently large mirror at the geostationary station, and you will see the same launching rocket in a couple of seconds, and not after some time, when it rises above the radio horizon for the ground based SPRN radar. And about what to bring down? Science and technology do not stand still. Half a century ago, the speed of interceptor missiles was sometimes calculated at 1,5-2M, now we are now talking about 5,5-9 km / s. A hypersonic device flying in space (in the middle section at a speed of 7 km / s, it’s quite possible to bring down a rocket at a speed of 5,5 km / s. In addition, the computing power does not stand still. Where previously it took days or weeks after some time, the time interval for processing will be reduced to minutes.

    Well, stupid. They will spend several billion on the radar, and we will give them a bucket of bolts in the orbit of this radar.

    Many here probably thought that this was a reaction to Putin’s speech. But in the original source (DefenseNews) to which the "respected" RIA refers, nothing is said about Russia and missiles. And the general himself pushed the speech on February 28, on the day of the message. )))
