Raytheon Corp. Excluded from PrSM Hypersonic Rocket Program

Raytheon Corp. Excluded from PrSM Hypersonic Rocket Program

The U.S. Army has excluded Raytheon Corporation from its Precision Strike Missile (PrSM) advanced tactical missile program. According to the magazine "Jane's Missiles & Rockets", on March 20, it was decided not to allocate corporate funds under this program.


Raytheon Corporation is excluded from the US Army's program to create a promising hypersonic operational tactical missile PrSM. The reason for the termination of the agreement was the inability of Raytheon to begin flight tests of its version of the rocket on time. Thus, the only participant in the PrSM program remains Lockheed Martin Corporation, which has already completed two successful flight tests and is preparing for the third scheduled for May this year.

The Precision Strike Missile (PrSM) program, launched in 2017, involves the creation of a new generation of high-precision operational-tactical missiles with a speed of more than 5 Mach numbers and an official initially declared range of 60 to 499 km, but the development was carried out taking into account the US withdrawal from the INF Treaty. According to reports, the rocket is now capable of flying up to 550 km, and according to other sources - up to 700-750 km.

The new hypersonic missile is being developed as a replacement for the obsolete ammunition of the ATACMS operational tactical systems, in addition, the military is also considering the possibility of using the new ammunition on the M270A1 MLRS and M142 HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems.

Raytheon, as part of the PrSM program, led the development of the rocket under the designation DeepStrike. The company repeatedly postponed the start of rocket testing, citing “technical problems” as a reason, which ultimately forced the US Army to decide whether Raytheon would continue to participate in the PrSM program.

      Where did you find the monopoly?
      One contestant screwed up and was expelled, respectively, the second, who showed the result and wins ...
      Is this the wrong scheme?
      Isn't it the same with us?

    Well, Lockheed here and there. How much dough they have, that in fact the monopolists bought everyone.

    Where does the antimonopoly service look?

      And where does the antitrust service? The assignment was the same for everyone, but Raytheon failed on time.

          And what to do with a company that cannot meet the deadlines, and not the first time? Why allocate money to such a company?
          This is a competition that Raytheon did not pull.

    Speaking of hyper-speed rockets, the flight of a body fueled with fuel with a high energy density is obviously implied. At the same time, there is no mechanization of supply and control of fuel supply. That is, there is no engine. In addition, one component fuel. Moreover, the missiles are not guided, and moreover, with a high degree of probability, the processes of the reaction of the warhead to such accelerations have not been studied. Therefore, obviously, Raytheon clearly understands the consequences of issuing to the military, in all aspects, a non-finished product.

      Have you ever been interested in the range of Raytheon?

      Well, what would it be so loudly declare "moved away from the feeder"?
      The annual turnover of the Reiteon company is greater than our defense budget !!!

      More than our purchases, the maintenance of the army, and everything-everything-everything connected directly or indirectly with our army, navy, aviation and all-all-all.

      One company from the Big Three - more than the entire Russian defense along with the military-industrial complex ...

      Well, turn on the brain, before carrying nonsense, it hurts to look at your ignorance ...

    The PrSM rocket is a serious weapon!
    In the case of the deployment of these missiles in the Baltic States and Ukraine, 7, 54, 28, 60 missile divisions will be under the gun, these are 184 launchers.

        A vanguard of two missiles is a serious weapon?

                Are you an uriapatriot? The Americans will do, and not in 10 years, the flight time is 5-6 minutes. These are not cartoons for armature, su-57, a nuclear flying suitcase, diesel-electric submarine Lada, Peresvet, Poseidon, etc. After all, according to the RF Defense Ministry, this should already be in service for 5-10 years.
                Pralno, it’s FSE’s heeling and long. Even 500+ Penguins do not fly. And here we have the Shell all Tomahawks and Delilah knocks down, FSE 105 percent, completely.

                And you, the idiots didn’t get stuck with their own "we have such devices, but we will not show them to you!" No?

                You have so many times extolled the "nonexistent in the world", and when then it was "obsessed ..." you began to write. supposedly not that weather, not those Arabs, filled up with number, and other justifiable heresy ...

                Remember how our supposedly robots were taken to Syria.
                How is it with the Uranus after the first exit?

                And I show you how.
                Closed the program.
                For they blinded the nonsense that had been touted for several years, and then it dawned that our robots and other people's robots were two different things.
                Their robots are working and improving, our robots should be hidden away, and the designers should be burned so that they would never continue their defective gene pool ...

                  There are two extremes, “urapatriots” and “pro-Western liberalists”.

                  So, personally, I don’t adjoin either camp, unlike you and the maxim above, with templates from the State Department.

                  Personally, I am a normal person with critical thinking and gray matter in my head.

                  So leave your wicked bark, you turned to the wrong person

                    Believe me, I do not drown for the west.
                    I have been many times in Africa and in Arabia, and Southeast Asia, and in Europe.

                    And could live there. but I don’t like it there.
                    Here from the word in general.

                    And I'm really the Patriot of my country.
                    But I hate hatred.
                    I can’t stand the lies.
                    "having no analogues in the world" - I hate it.

                    I was at the Porsche factories for an internship.
                    I worked at Kuznetsov, Progress, Motorostroitel, the 18th aircraft factory, I was at Luch, VAZ, Roslad, DAAZ and many others.

                    And do not tell me about our designers and engineers.
                    For I was also a member of the diploma commissions of the Samara aerospace and polytechnics.

                    And if the student is really a genius, then the teachers themselves are there right away with giblets and sold at IBM, Boeing, Watermelon, Halliburton, Dassault Systems and many others, receiving dividends.

                    And if the smart ones go immediately to the west, then they remain inside the mediocrity that I see every day.
                    And this is a fact.

                    But let's be honest and we will call a spade a spade.

                    And if we want to be really strong - then we should not rush off with bonnets and not yell about the lack of an analogue in the world - but first change the higher school and the system of managers.
                    For there is nothing worse than a top manager who grew up from a Soviet engineer.
                    Complete lack of gamut in everything.

                    For in the early 90s, the most dumb people remained on the military commissar, working for a beggarly salary with a delay of 3-6 months, because they didn’t take such dumb people to any cooperative,
                    also mowed down from the army - for they had been granted a deferment while they were working.
                    And so they worked for almost 30 years, there was no one to teach them, for they were smart and intelligent, they themselves could not learn anything, because there is no development there. But grew up on a career.
                    Zero times any investment gives zero.
                    All our military is essentially zero.

                    I, like having worked there for many years, say this directly.

                    And believe me - you're nobody that I would personally contact you.
                    no one and call nick. Empty empty grunt.

                    But tens of thousands of people will read my words later.
                    They compare the situation in the country, compare their life experience in the situation at the military factories, etc., etc.
                    And you, if you don’t log in, will look very funny ..
                    But not me.

                    And this your bark was not even evil, but yapping ... Funny. Like my pinscher, subscript ...

                      Only shit is flowing across the floor.

                      I do not like Russia, move wherever you want, where the same stubborn ones will certainly kick your ass.

    It is only natural that Raytheon dropped out of the PrSM program. The task was given, Raytheon did not fulfill it.
    Well, let's see what Lockheed Martin will do in the end.

    That is, American missiles can maintain a hyperspeed of about 300 seconds, or even less, since the total range is indicated, the section of hyperspeed is much less than it, apparently you should focus on 100-150 seconds. Not much...

      Again.
      Look at the turnover of the companies Raytheon, Boeing and Lockheed - and compare them with the military budget of Russia.

      And also look and compare the annual turnover with the cost of the PrSM program ...
