US Air Force closes HCSW hypersonic weapon development program

US Air Force halts one of two hypersonic development programs weapons. According to Anne Stefaneck, spokesman for the Air Force, the program for developing the Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon (HCSW) fell under the reduction.


The HCSW program was one of Lockheed Martin’s hypersonic missile development projects for the B-52 strategic bomber. The reason for stopping the program was the limited allocation of funds within the Pentagon's military budget for 2021, which led to the choice of financing only one of the programs: either HCSW, or a program for developing a split hypersonic complex called "Air Launched Rapid Response Weapon" - ARRW).

The US Air Force Command decided to retain the ARRW program because it is more of a “unique planning block design” than the HCSW.

As previously reported, the HCSW program created a long-range missile with a speed of more than Mach 5, capable of breaking through the missile defense system (in the initial version), further plans for its development have already been curtailed, the company received a notification that there was no funding for the HCSW program.

Earlier, the head of the US Air Force Logistics Command, General Arnold Bunch, said that the US Air Force is developing two types of hypersonic weapons and expects to receive initial combat readiness by the 2022 year. The Air Force implements two programs - HCSW and ARRW (Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon and Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon).

As previously reported, the development of hypersonic weapons programs HCSW and ARRW for the US Air Force is engaged in Lockheed Martin. The first flight tests of hypersonic warheads with the ARRW air launch system (also labeled AGM-183A) took place in the United States in June 2019 and were recognized successful.

It should be noted that in addition to the US Air Force, its own programs for creating hypersonic weapons are conducted by the US Navy and DARPA, the Department of Defense Advanced Research Programs of the US

    They ran and ran with their hypersound, clucking like a chicken with an egg, and suddenly - all in a fart into the air?

        US Air Force closes HCSW hypersonic weapon development program

          Our leadership, for sure, is informed about the real situation.
          So for the money clucking!

            I believe that the US budget itself is not a problem for such developments.
            Most likely the case is the upcoming presidential election company in the United States.

            After the presidential election in the United States, the situation will become clearer, and we will learn more truthfully about the intentions of the USA / Pentagon on this development.

            They definitely have enough budget. Here most likely a question of expediency. Pulling a few similar developments is irrational for the army of any country.

          Why? Of the two programs, HCSW (Hypersonic Conventional Impact Weapon) and ARRW (Air Rapid Response Weapon), one (HCSW) fell off, and ARRW remained. Now they will experience, I wish you failure.

      Strongly primitive. Sounds. Do not you find? Our loot of course to cut is not a national sport? laughing Just do not need about the amount. What is the budget such amounts of cuts. Or the Americans are "stupid" laughing They more than compensated the other day for the lag in hypersonic weapons by placing small charges on their strategic missiles hi And really flying time if we start to sort through the shelves.

        The “Vanguard” launch was at the Kura training ground, which the United States “sees” perfectly, they could not miss the launch, for any ballistic missile launches are notified in advance, does it mean that the entire flight and all parameters were tracked, was there a refutation of the characteristics declared by Russia? Reloading ICBMs into the mine is not a matter of 2 minutes, the latest information was about placing one UR-100N UUTH with the Avangard BB on pilot combat duty and preparations are underway for loading the second mine

      Transferring promising developments is a normal practice. The principle of "brainstorming" and natural selection - many projects are launched, then there is a competition and screenings, more or less viable and applicable ideas are replicated for the rest.
      And here, looking at attempts to cross the hedgehog with a boa constrictor ... sorry, Ilyushin and Sukhoi, in general, they are trying to bury the last hints of such an approach under Rostec's papers. And we will work on the principle of the blonde - In the world there is only one correct opinion and it is mine!

        This is just about the fact that the program was left alone.
        Number TWO - the program from Lockheed again fell under the reduction. this despite the fact that at the same time, for example, they launched the Raytheon program with the update of radars, under which actually there are NO missile defense missiles.
        It means slowly - there are no rockets, there is no money, therefore we will start the unnecessary program, and we will cut the necessary one (we need to desperately hypersonic - we are already behind) - we will cut it.
        And all this has nothing to do with the fact that the Lokhidov’s lobby was removed from power, and the Minister of Defense - employee Reiteon.

    I don’t know, should I comment on something, judging by the condition of the ship from which the anti-ship missile tests are being carried out, they just have to test the hypersound, I also liked how they wrote about 8 km / s, it could be attributed even more that they’re embarrassed

      Vasily Ponomarev, why not thank God? Your opinion is not the opinion of a higher authority, it is only an attempt to understand what you are far from. Simply, you need to solve the problem of rocket overheating in dense layers of the atmosphere. It is resolved, no matter what else prevents the rocket from flying at a speed of 7,8 km / s? She will not make a hundred turns around the planet. It will fly thousands of kilometers and hit the target, and strike at hypersound, and not slow down to supersonic sound, as some comrades naively write on the site!

    It was a project of a classic ramjet cruise missile flying horizontally in dense atmospheric layers.
    No one else has developed such a project. The device flies overheating in a cloud of plasma. Difficulty with heat-resistant materials, difficulty with control.
    However, one trial was completely successful. But this is not enough.
    Russia and China went the simple way: BR launches a planning warhead into space. From there, she plans from a height of 100 km to 40, and then vertically attacks the target.
    Without any ramjet engine. Only with gas side rudders. Much easier. Now the Americans are creating the same thing. Your "Vanguard"

      Warrior, how long does a rocket fly by inertia at an altitude of 40 kilometers without its own engine? And, in the process of maneuver, a "dive" or a failure in the atmosphere is possible, this is a loss of altitude, and as a result of this, a loss of a rocket! And please, don’t tell anyone that Russian hypersonic missiles do not have an engine for dispersal and maneuver in the atmosphere — knowledgeable people will laugh at such a statement!

        On the booster - which is the first stage of a conventional liquid ballistic missile (long discontinued), naturally, there is an engine that accelerates the first stage to the first cosmic speed. Conventional rocket engine. And the Vanguard itself has no engine - this is a planning warhead - not counting the gas rudders - openings on the side for small maneuvers.

          Alexei, you obviously do not want to understand that if the Vanguard were pure “inertial” without an engine, there would be no sense in it! The possibility of maneuver, braking, or even overclocking due to loss of altitude and speed during long flights in dense layers atmosphere and make a hypersonic missile combat and not passive, capable of working only over areas, then there is no point in such a missile. And the presence of an engine, and the possibility of maneuver and do-dispersal, make the Vanguard and Zircon a weapon capable of maneuvering ACTIVELY at the expense of the engine to hit a nominal moving target, such as, say, a cruiser.

            "during a long flight in dense layers of the atmosphere" ////
            ----
            It does not fly horizontally in dense layers of the atmosphere.
            This is only possible with a ramjet engine.
            On what the Americans were burnt with their project.
            Vanguard flies, smoothly descending, from space
            and without entering the dense atmosphere abruptly dives down to the target.
            Only in this way you can not slow down to supersonic (on it - easily knocked down)
            and hit the target.

    it’s easy, no one said how to achieve a speed of 28 mach (even modern missiles), but just write that it doesn’t work, and here’s a profit for you, and you seem to be the winner, there’s nothing to prove, well, okay, the normal ones understood everything, it’s stupid to explain I don’t see the point, as they say "questions of faith are priceless to me

With the same success, the mattresses sang about the railgun, and where is it? So you can get into the gums with a small nooname, for the majority on this site he is NOBODY and call him NO.

      okay you wrong

      I explain. Once I already wrote. Only a person who is completely off topic can make a mistake. Just as a programmer cannot write a program, an air defense officer or rocket launcher will never confuse km / h with km / s.
      So work carefully with the training manual.
      And whose agent does anyone know from me, maybe bulk, maybe Hodor, maybe Soros, maybe the State Department or 404. Your name is legion ....

    first. To begin with, the Vanguard is not intended to destroy ships. This is not an anti-ship missile, but the military equipment of ICBMs.
    Second. Of course, the “Vanguard” of course has a maneuver, especially a side one. But all this maneuvering is very smooth. With a sharp maneuver, it just falls apart from overloads.
    The third. The possibility of overclocking and braking can only be on a cruise missile, which has been running a ramjet engine all this time. What rocket engines can be shoved into a device with a length of 4-4,5 meters and a plane span of 2-2,4 meters - I don’t know such an engine that it not only accelerates the vehicle when braking, but also performs vertical maneuvers many times
    Fourth. In dense atmospheric layers such an apparatus does not fly. At speeds of 10M and at altitudes of about 11 km he has a temperature of about 6000 ° C, that is, the Sun. In dense layers, he can only move by reducing the speed to supersonic ...

    Remember, the Americans closed the drone program that year - https://topwar.ru/157049-v-ssha-svernuli-programmu-sozdanija-bespilotnika-novogo-pokolenija.html#comment-id-9298092
    it’s not cost saving, just not enough brains. there is a shortage of qualified personnel on drones (they concentrate on the main), but here they simply cannot solve the physics problem. this is not for you hundreds of IT specialists from Russia who work in the valley. This is his mother, Lockheed Martin, the Pentagon, the defense industry and the latest secret developments (and there are very few good physicists in the world)
