Intercept Zircon - US urgently modernizes air defense system

72
In the United States, they are continuing to implement a project to improve the integrated air-missile defense system. At the same time, as media expertise shows, the number of statements by American politicians, military, and representatives of enterprises of the military-industrial complex about the “need to improve” the air defense system has increased multiple times after the Russian president voiced his message to the Federal Assembly. Recall that Vladimir Putin suggested that the United States "calculate" how long it would take the newest Russian weapons to reach American territory if the United States does not stop militarization.


Intercept Zircon - US urgently modernizes air defense system

American technology in the hangar


It became known that the American company Raytheon is working on the development of a program for the integration of air defense and missile defense. In particular, this is a new approach to the program. LTAMDS (Lower Tier Air and Missile Defense Sensor) - the so-called “lower tier” air defense-missile defense system. This system, as noted, needs a new radar, which would allow it to more effectively identify threats and prepare the system for interception.

Raytheon's integrated air defense and missile defense director Bob Kelly said the system could be updated by the 2022 year. At the same time, Kelly noted that the update should be "urgent."

Two large companies, Raytheon and Lockheed Martin, are currently competing in the supply of radar.

It is known that the tests of the new radar of the air defense system-PRO must pass at the White Sands range in the state of New Mexico (USA). And until the end of this year, the military will make their choice.

The importance of the possibility of such a system as “coverage of space in 360 degrees” is noted for 100-percent monitoring of probable threats.

Kelly:
If the army tells us that it needs a radar with 360 degrees coverage, then we can answer it: we have all the possibilities for this kind of modernization in the future.


In other words, the director of the American company notes that while the radar being developed does not have a spatial coverage of such characteristics.

In the American expert environment, they note that "measures must be taken to intercept hypersonic Russian missiles, including Zircon." According to experts in the States, the updated air defense system should also be used to protect the infrastructure and the strike component of the US Navy bases.

              We underestimated just the mattresses. Obama declared a "gas station country," and Trump said he would be in charge of the military. As a result, the US military budget has grown, they do not go out of nowhere and do not think, they have more freeloaders who grunt.
              The mattress experts themselves say that if the situation is not changed dramatically, then by the 30 year our military advantage will become absolute, and by the 35-40 year, China will achieve the same advantage over the United States.

          Like.
          I have a crowbar! You should all be afraid of me and obey! Everyone dropped and obeyed and one took and invented a "pistol", and he does the same. All be afraid .. and so on. Then again, others had "pistols" .... what to do?
          Either agree not to aim pistols above the waist and wait for someone to jump out with a "grenade", or without waiting for anyone to invent first and a tank and a cannon with a machine gun.
          Technological breakthrough faster than others, the most optimal option.
          Now drones, tomorrow Cosmos will both spit on the INF Treaty and Iran, for example, except for feeding troughs.
          Behind any treaty, there must be an "Nagibatel" equal for everyone, for the United States there is no such thing today, it must be created.

      And why do you think they left the INF Treaty? For the interests of the military-industrial complex. Bolton represents the interests of the American military-industrial complex. For the military-industrial complex, an arms race is needed, and not an agreement.

    Intercept Zircon - US urgently modernizes air defense system

    Where is the relationship between the Zircon missile and air defense as the author of the "lower tier" put it? At low altitudes, only subsonic missiles fly to great distances, and LTAMDS is also against them.

      When approaching the target (terminal section), hypersonic Raman scattering should
      slow down so that coming out of the plasma cloud becomes controlled again
      and find the goal of your GOS. So missile defense should treat it like a supersonic
      cruise missile.

          Because, flying in the atmosphere in a plasma cloud, there is no way to take
          external radio signals, nor use your radar to aim at the target.

        The point is to fly to the target in a subsonic mode (low-low), and then, having risen slightly, switch to supersonic at the final stage. Anyway, you don’t even shoot down supersonic missiles.
        The statement was originally such
        At low altitudes, only subsonic RCs fly to a long range,

    It is clear that even with the most up-to-date radar, the "exceptional" will only be able to "conduct with their gaze" a volley of "Zircons" from RTOs. But without these radars they will not be able to do this either ... Oh, how much the bases in the Caribbean are needed.

        How do you know that the Caliber is further? The Zircon range is MORE than 1000 km, and it can be both 2000 km and 3000 km. Zircon is a hypersonic analogue of Caliber. Caliber can be cheaper, but it is much easier to intercept because of its speed. Zircon can start from submarines and tactical aviation. And then Buyan?

        Yes, only they are few and few for calibers and for everything else. But the ships in the ocean zone generally cried.

    I have a question. What are they going to work on the characteristics of radars? Computer simulation method? Or will they ask the Russians for a pair of training zircons?

    US urgently modernizes air defense system

    Something tells me that on this topic, US spending will fly into more than one American penny with 12 zeros. Defense must be faster than attack. This means that the new arms race for wear and tear may not be for the United States what they expected.

      I quote Berkut24: US spending will fly into more than one American penny with 12 zeros. But you should not worry about this - as much as you need, they will print so much until the paper and ink are finished. but it is not soon.

    but Israeli partners are also modernizing their capabilities. as targets .. our weapon.
    In the Israel Aerospace promotional video, the model of the “one-time” Mini Harpy kamikaze drone destroys a mobile radar similar to the 96L6E high-altitude detector on the MZKT-7930 chassis, which are used for the Russian S-300 and S-400 air defense systems.
    the truth immediately assures us of eternal friendship and love for us.
    “From Israel there are no actions against Russia. We didn’t set ourselves the goal of belittling the reputation of Russian weapons and are not going to do it, ”Israeli political scientist Simon Tsipis told the newspaper VZGLYAD, commenting on the appearance of Russian gunsmiths of Russian weapons as targets.

    If the army tells us that it needs a 360-degree radar, then we can answer it: we have all the possibilities for this kind of modernization in future.
    That is, someday it may be. laughing

    I generally liked it. In the last "message.", The Americans saw their town. And in this - they showed the aircraft carrier directly. And it is right. For me, it should be tougher .. So that the statue of liberty would stand in a pose ...)
