US plans to test hypersonic weapons next year

65
The US plans to conduct numerous tests of its hypersonic weapons in 2019 year, transmits TASS a message from the director of the Pentagon's Advanced Research Programs Office (DARPA), Stephen Walker.




We are going to start testing these systems (hypersonic weapons) in 2019 year. You will see a lot of flight tests,
Walker told reporters.

He stressed that "the development of hypersonic weapons is a priority management task," which has been working "jointly with the Air Force and NASA, as well as with the Army (ground forces) and the Navy for several years."

These will be systems with great potential.
noted the head of management.

He also said that he was working with the US Department of Defense Missile Defense Agency on developing ways to protect against enemy hypersonic weapons.

China and Russia are active in the field of hypersonic weapons and are increasing their potential,
added Walker.

At the same time, he noted that the development of hypersonic technologies in the United States "are under-funded."

We need dollar infusions of infrastructure to create hypersonic weapons,
he said.

The head of the department pointed out that China is investing heavily in the development of such weapons, as well as the construction of infrastructure facilities for them. According to him, their number is “more than two or three times” than in the USA itself.

The PRC, the director of DARPA stressed, “made the hypersonic weapon its national priority.”

I think we should do the same
stated Walker.

        Americans will probably develop something and produce something, BUT for a very expensive price.

            Here's an example: You sold 60 refrigerators at a NYSE, paid a tax. It goes to the budget of the exchange, it pays tax to the budget of the country. Sold goods 60 refrigerators plus in GDP, taxes to the state budget. So it was before.
            And now, you sold 60 refrigerators to an entrepreneur, and he sold them to three others, 20 each, and each of the three sold to four others, 5 refrigerators each. Now the Americans consider not 60 refrigerators and the tax from them, but the whole chain of 60 + (20 x 3) + (4 x 5) = 180 refrigerators goes to GDP and taxes to the budget.

            This is not a tricky way they attribute to GDP of up to 700 billion a year.

                Move on. Do you know R&D? This is a research and development work. In the US budget there is an allocation of funds for the US military budget, this is how you understand the costs! But the Americans are adding this to the country's GDP, so they attribute another 1,5 trillion dollars a year to GDP. Since 2011, they have begun to do so.

                    Do you know why? Because even with postscript they began to lag behind China in terms of GDP, 18 trillion and 21 trillion, respectively. This means that fewer countries will invest in the US economy.

                    So in 2030, India will take third place in GDP.

          90% of Americans wanting to buy real estate on credit choose a mortgage for a period of 30 years with a fixed interest rate. The average interest rate on such a loan at the beginning of 2016 is 3,72%

            Is that all you managed to sprinkle? You are funny trolls. In principle, if any politician rummages through, you can find quotes or promises that he did not fulfill. In the same 2012, no one expected the development of events according to the 2014 scenario. The economy at that time quite allowed itself to make such statements. So with all your miserable attempts you need to go to the toilet, push there, maybe it’s easier.
