In the United States revealed the characteristics of the hypersonic missile AGM-183A ARRW

The newest American hypersonic cruise missile AGM-183A Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) will be able to reach speeds of up to Mach 6,5 - 8. Reported by The Drive.


According to the data published by the publication, the rocket will cover the distance of 1000 miles (more than 1600 kilometers) in 10-12 minutes.

The AGM-183A ARRW missile was created in response to similar developments in Russia and China. The B-52H Stratofortress strategic bombers (four missiles per strategist) will be the first to receive a hypersonic missile.

In February of this year, Lockheed Martin announced the successful defense of the project of a promising hypersonic aeroballistic missile ARRW (Air-launched Rapid Response Weapon), which has been under development by order of the US Air Force since 2018.

Earlier it was reported that the US Air Force and Lockheed Martin signed a contract worth $ 988,8 million to create an ARRW hypersonic missile (Weapon quick response based in the air). The agreement includes a critical review of the ARRW project, test support and preparation of the complex for production. The missile should be ready by 2021, and the initial operational readiness by 2022. According to the company, the work is on schedule.

It is known that the rocket will receive a solid-propellant engine and a detachable hypersonic gliding warhead.

The first flight tests of hypersonic warheads with the AGM-183A ARRW air launch system took place in the United States in June 2019 and were considered successful. In August of this year, test flights of the B-52H strategic bomber with AGM-183A missiles were carried out. The bomber took off from Edwards Air Force Base (California).

    If it was created in response, then, too, somehow too quickly. As if by magic.
    Either it has been in development for a long time or they are lying.

          And what's wrong? Didn't the USA have the technology to achieve hypersound?
          The whole tsimes is to fly at such a speed in the atmosphere and not burn up, and not in space.

            Are "theirs" marketers better at using a calculator? But seriously, "M> 8" in our case can mean the maximum speed on the trajectory. With acceleration and other maneuvers, the average can be more modest. An American rocket launches in the air, picks up speed faster - hence a different result can be obtained. Well, plus nothing prevents each of the parties from "rounding" the results in a convenient direction;)

                Do you think it comes out directly from the PU on hypersound? Anyway, the real profile of the Zircon's flight is a secret and, as a result, food for speculation. Like, a flight at 4-5M on the midcourse and acceleration to maximum speed at the end. Or vice versa - at full speed on the cruise and deceleration at the target (so that the RGSN works normally). Or officials just randomly call numbers, if only it sounds solid))

                  Of course not .. well, with all the "operations" after exiting the PC and stabilizing on the climb trajectory to an altitude of 28 km, it takes about 40 -100 seconds (the average speed on the trajectory is at the rate of 330 m / s), but after reaching approximately 4,8 M the rocket goes into the GP mode and "goes to the target".

              If we take it the way you think, then the Zircon should be accelerated at speeds> 10M ... so that it would get M> 8 on the marching section wink

              The speed on the cruising section will decrease both due to air resistance and due to the lengthening of the flight route, as a result of which the flight time increases, and if we consider that when switching to a dive, braking will increase even more, then the average speed is M> 8 ... that's just. ..

            I don’t understand why you are comparing the swings and km / h.
            Even taking 350 km for a constant speed of sound 30 m / s (at a temperature of +450) for 4.5 minutes, it turned out to be Mach 4.76. For the "foe" at 1600 km in 12 minutes (if you take your original ones), this is Mach 6.35, which is also not similar to that stated in the article.

        I am not getting out, your calculation is not clear to me.

        and you tell me .. "vtyuhivaet" your 4,76 .... now compare ... I was very wrong in the wording?

        I am not trying to point out the error in numbers. I just pointed to a more accurate figure so that I would not be accused of pulling the indicators in one direction.

        And in general, in the calculations, 331 M / s is taken for the air environment, and not 350 ... how do you wink
        Showing art .. "manipulation" wassat

        This sin of manipulation then must lie on you. 350 was taken only for the reason that in order to obtain Mach 4.8 (from your data) with the initial 450 km in 4.5 minutes, I did not succeed with 330. I decided to start from 350 to assume the correctness of your first calculation for some of your environment. So the joint is yours, not mine.

        you counted 6,35M, although in fact 6,717 .... M .... is "slightly" different then your calculations? wink


        In fact, using a speed of 331 m / s you get Mach 6.714, and again you are not accurate (woe to your calculator). And then I calculated from taking into account the speed of sound at 350 m / s. Again, I assumed an equal environment for comparing velocities (you probably did not ...) and used this velocity assuming that you used it for the first calculation.

        So take another time ... 10 minutes, we count .. "right" and oh .. what is it .... 8.0563M.
        what about your statements now - ".... which is also not similar to what is stated in the article." ... wassat lol

        Generally stupid. Firstly, if you take thousandths, then 8.0564 (although this is a nitpick) Secondly, are you again comparing the km / h and swings described in the first message? And what is this "So take another time"? You took the two maximum values ​​for time and distance, that still made sense. But to take at random and consider something is the lot of an amateur potryndet.

        And for the appendage! For the umpteenth time I am convinced that the Troll on VO marks itself with a crowd of emoticons in the message, because emoticons are the only thing that he needs in any communication ... just that.

            It's not even about emoticons. Filling messages can say a lot about a person. An overabundance of ellipsis, an abundance of emoticons to the point and not so much. This also indicates the quality of the formation of thought. The use of jokes and frequent avoidance of a simple (seemingly) answer. I looked at your comments in general on VO, not all is lost, but please think about the quality, I know you are capable of more.
            I think it is pointless to continue the conversation further, I just wanted to understand where the numbers came from and why there was a strange comparison. I didn't get a simple answer, I'm sorry.

      we have a sea launch, so it is difficult to determine the exact speed, while amers have an air one .. and determine the speed from the calculation of "how many horizontally flown" .. strange, since our rocket, roughly speaking, flies along a parabola and the speed is calculated according to it ..

          In principle, I agree the same, but ... then this is not a hypersonic missile at all wink since in aviation there is a clear definition of GLA - this is an aircraft that for some time carries out STEADY hypersonic flight in the atmosphere.
          Steady - this is when the thrust force of the engine compensates for air resistance (constancy of hypersonic speed is ensured), and gravity is compensated for by aerodynamic lift (constancy of flight altitude). wink
          The engine can be rocket (liquid or solid propellant) or air-jet (for example, hypersonic ramjet).

          Rocket engine works for a very short time, measured in seconds (tens). Therefore, the rocket-powered device first picks up speed, and then, after running out of fuel and turning off the engine, flies by inertia, braking by the resistance of the oncoming air flow. That is why a rocket, flying at supersonic speed part of the time, is NOT a hypersonic aircraft.
          Sustained hypersonic flight can only be provided by a hypersonic jet engine (scramjet engine)
          To summarize the above: a hypersonic aircraft is an aircraft with a hypersonic CRUISING speed, performing a STEADY flight at hypersonic speed, usually - due to a hypersonic jet engine.

            In general, one gets the impression that the term "hypersonic" has become similar to the "fifth generation" in aviation: it is not so much technical as it is marketing. Those. there are many options for what to consider or not to consider a hypersonic aircraft, and there everyone chooses to their liking so that "their" product is hypersonic, and competitive ones are not))

          Hypersonic missile test March 19, 2020, Pacific Missile Range, Kauai, USA

          US Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy, speaking at the US Army Association conference, said the hypersonic missile hit a target with an accuracy of 6 inches, defensenews.com reported Oct. 14.

          “Hypersonic missiles hit their targets with a deviation of only 6 inches,” he said during his speech at the virtual conference opening ceremony on October 13.

          McCarthy was referring to the successful flight tests of the Army and Navy's hypersonic gliding unit this year. The missile launched from the Pacific Missile Range in Kauai, Hawaii on March 19, an army spokesman confirmed.

          The Common-Hypersonic Glide Body (C-HGB) took off and flew at hypersonic speed to the “designated impact point,” according to a statement released on the day of the test.

          Hypersonic weapons can fly faster than Mach 5, that is, more than 5 times faster than sound, and can maneuver at different altitudes and azimuths, making them difficult to detect.

          The C-HGB glider consists of a warhead, guidance system, cables and a heat shield, and will serve as the base for the Pentagon's offensive hypersonic missile. Each of the combat arms develops appropriate launching systems.

          The army is developing ground capabilities and plans to receive the first battery with hypersonic missiles by 2023. Lockheed Martin is acting as the lead integrator for the system on a mobile ground-based launcher (truck), and Dynetics Technical Solutions is to organize the production of gliders on a serial basis.

          The Army is preparing for another flight test in the third quarter of fiscal 2021, followed by a second flight test in the first quarter of fiscal 2022, Lieutenant General L. Neil Thurgood told Defense News ahead of the AUSA conference. There will then be two more flight tests in the third quarter of 2012, Thurgood added. “So we're starting to speed up our flight tests,” he said.

          The Army plans to deliver the first hypersonic missile launcher to the combat unit in the fourth quarter of FY21.

    Let's count who was wrong. From the data presented, it is obvious that this is an aeroballistic rocket - an analogue of the "Dagger". "Dagger" was adopted in 2018. The Americans plan to achieve "operational readiness" by 2020 by 2020. Most likely, by this wording, they mean the completion of tests. Before joining the troops, it must take some time. Considering that practically for all projects over the past 30 years there has been no case that they did not shift to the right in terms of timing. Minimum 2 years. This, so to speak, if it works out at all. Because some of the projects ended in failure. It turns out that with the most favorable development of the project, the gap will be 7 years. This is at the most favorable.

              The Kura Vanguard was shot once:
              1) without maneuvering
              2) without planing. The warhead fell almost vertically, like a conventional ICBM warhead.
              ---
              The vanguard was tested at an internal test site, where the Americans do not flog all the time (there are temporary holes between the satellites). 4 tests at distances MRBM. Three successful ones.
              Therefore, only 2 missiles were put on alert. Few challenges.

Those. instead of 72 warheads with false targets, there will be just 12 warheads. It seems that at the beginning of the 20th century it was called "sabotage".

                  Many warheads cannot be placed on ICBMs anyway - under an agreement with the Americans. Their total number is limited. The States also have one CU instead of three on the Minutemans. You put a lot of Stylers with the Vanguard, there will be fewer Yars.

            If the enemy has a developed missile defense system, then warheads with easily calculated trajectories are simply knocked down. Nuclear warheads must be covered with a bunch of dummy warheads (R-36M), which in behavior must correspond to combat ones, or must maneuver along an unpredictable trajectory, then there will be a chance to reach the target.

              The anti-missile must still fly very close to the target warhead or even "stick" into it (in the case of a kinetic interceptor), i.e. even a relatively small change in the trajectory of the warhead greatly complicates the interception. In other words, the rocket's maneuverability is still needed, but not to say that it must twist right in the air.

    Almost certainly they did it for a long time: Americans also know how to work for the future. Now, apparently, it is a good reason to present it to the public: like, a response to the "Russian threat" and, as a result, an excuse to shake out more money for the project.

      And for THREE years (?) - this is pardon nonsense!

      Continuing your post:

      In the photo, the test of the Kholod scramjet engine on November 28, 1991, The first full-scale tests of the Soviet scramjet engine are being carried out at the Sary-Shagan test site in Kazakhstan near Lake Balkhash, in the first flight tests a speed of 5,6M was reached, and the flying laboratory itself rose to a record height of 35 kilometers ,
      In subsequent launches of "Kholod", which were carried out in the period from 1991 to 1998, it was possible to achieve the operation time of the scramjet engine in 77 seconds and accelerate the laboratory to a record speed of 1 m / s, which corresponded to 832M. The hypersound was subdued - and for the first time it was the Soviet GPVRD "Kholod" that did it.

      Prior to flight tests, the scramjet engine was tested in the laboratory of the Turaevsky branch of CIAM, where the largest bench base in Europe for the study of hypersound is located. On the unique stand Ts-16VK, it was possible to carry out the most complete simulation of real high-altitude and speed conditions at speeds up to a hypersonic speed of 6M.

      As a result, throughout the 1990s, the Americans began to act in their usual way, simply buying any results obtained on the Kholod hypersonic aircraft in the already independent, but then money-free Russia. Therefore, it turned out that the X-43A program, which became key for all subsequent developments of American hypersonic vehicles, in fact was built not at all on our own American developments, but on technology borrowed from the USSR and Russia from the Cold project.

      After the termination of cooperation on hypersound between Russia and the United States, tests in the United States continued, but the Americans failed to achieve acceptable results for further development and, for financial reasons, the X-43A project was curtailed)))

      In the USSR, the X-90 was brought to the flight model, which in fact was the first hypersonic cruise missile, with a range of 3500 km, was launched from the Tu-160, showed 6M during tests, but the collapse of the USSR and the lack of money in Russia put the project on the shelf, as I understand now revived and improved based on these developments.

      So the terms in the law of the United States are shifting, and for trivial reasons - they did not bring to mind the information received from Russia during the years of "cooperation")))

    Another hypersonic missile is planned in the near future.
    The Air Force is also pursuing a hypersonic jet-powered missile called Chaos, which is likely to be smaller than the ARRW and can be carried in fighter-sized aircraft as well as large bombers. It will be based on the concept of hypersonic air-breathing weapons, or HAWC, which the Air Force is developing in conjunction with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

    Comrade! All the time, the USA and the USSR went head to head in their developments. In some ways they were ahead, in some we were. But the scientific and technical potential of the countries was about the same size. Therefore, one can expect that they will lag behind for 10 or even 20 years only in speeches for the electorate. And even then it is fraught. Once they will catch up with us in 2-3 years, the second, the third - then they will stop believing the words of the speaker (and most of them).
    All the more so since they have come to grips with atmospheric hypersonic cruise missiles with a direct flow before we do our Zircon. Their Kh-43A began testing in 2001, and in 2004 set a speed record for such missiles - 9,6M or 3,2 km / s
    The X-51 began testing in 2010 and flew 2013 km in 6 minutes at an altitude of 18,2 km.
    For information. According to open data, the Zircon's throw tests began in 2012. so it is certainly possible to dream that they are 10-20 years behind us, but it will more resemble the position of an ostrich.
    Moreover, the number of potential carriers for AGM-183A ARRW - only B-52H they have about 65 (41 in service and up to 24 can be put into operation within 1-2 months. Plus B-1B in the amount of more than 60 pieces. How many carriers of "Dagger" do we have ???

    You, comrade, have a small error in the calculations. For the most part, it is logical. It was officially announced that the marching (maximum) speed of the Zircon is 2,6 km / s, or, translated into the M number, 8,66 Mach speeds.
    If you divide 450 km by 270 seconds (4,5 minutes), then the speed will be 1,7 km / s or 5,5M. But the speed of 1,6 km / s (5,5M) is the average speed. After all, there was an acceleration section when the booster rocket accelerated to about 4,8M, after which a hypersonic ramjet engine started working, accelerating it to a speed of 8,66M. Then the braking section, when the rocket began descent from 28 km to the target, braking in the atmosphere from a speed of 8,66M to I think 3-4M. That is why the average speed is 1,6 km / s or 5,5M

    Quote: Stas157
    And what kind of engine is there? It was never revealed. Ramjet or like the Dagger?

        First, the Zircon booster stage brings the rocket to heights, then the rocket drops the booster stage and turns on the scramjet engine and goes into hypersound for 5-8 max, the rocket reaches the intended search point, the radar turns on, the scramjet engine turns off, then the rocket drops the SU (power plant) and turns into a conventional gliding warhead (with ARGSN) down to the target. In dense layers of the atmosphere, the Zircon warhead begins to decelerate due to the force of air resistance, the higher the speed, the stronger the resistance, the braking .... At low altitudes, the warhead must have a subsonic speed.

          As for the Americans, they are doing better. Their HAWC hypersonic rocket is more likely to have a hybrid engine, allowing the rocket not only to fly at hypersonic altitude, but also to maintain the rocket engine at supersonic speed in the dense layers of the atmosphere. As we can see, their power plant (air intake) is not detachable. This gives the superiority of HAWC over Zircon in its capabilities to remain a rocket, which means intensive maneuvering and a missile defense breakthrough.

    Is there enough oxygen at 28 km for a straight-through?


    It is known that the Zircon covered 450 km in 270 seconds. Average speed - 1,7 km / s
    This is, so to speak, officially announced data.

    Although the cat cried data on "Zircon", but let's reason and try to get indirect data
    So what do we know. Approximately the length and diameter of the transport and launch container are known. It is 720 mm. This means that the diameter of the "Zircon-booster" complex itself will be somewhere around 650 millimeters. The diameter of the American booster is approximately the same. The length of the TPK for Onyx and Zircon is 8,9 meters.

    What is known about the approximate American analogue
    The length of the entire "rocket-booster" complex is 7,65 m, the length of the booster is 3,3 m, the length of the hypersonic apparatus is 4,25 m
    The weight of the complex is 814 kg, the weight of the apparatus is 672 kg (of which 120 kg of fuel), the weight of the booster is 1142 kg
    The speed reached 5,1M (at this speed it flew for 210 seconds). The total flight time is 370 seconds. During this time, he covered a distance of 426 km.

    Now your question. From a purely technical point of view, there is no problem to accelerate a hypersonic rocket with a booster to a speed of 8 m. I just have a serious suspicion that then this hypersonic device will be generally scanty in size. now the booster needs to accelerate it to a speed of 4,8M (if it has a straight-through) and the booster will be shorter than if it has to accelerate to 8M. Then it is generally not clear what the length of the "Zircon" will be.
    Gliding up to a speed of 5M is also no problem. But do not forget that the booster is no longer working and when planning, it will not only reduce its speed to 5M, but also lose altitude. But the descent - I think even less. That de "Iskander" has a flight speed of 2,1 km / s (6M), and near the ground - 700-800 m / s, i.e. 2-2,5M.
    And the most important thing. Then all the talk about a range of 100 km from "Zircon" is crap. For there is no direct flow, there is no booster, while gliding it will begin to lose speed and altitude and will not reach the 1000 km line

    Is there enough oxygen at this altitude? I think that's enough. In general, they say that the marching height of hypersonic aircraft with a direct flow should be within 30, and some say 40 km

In dense layers of the atmosphere, braking of the Zircon warhead begins due to the force of air resistance, the higher the speed, the stronger the resistance, the braking .... the warhead itself also slows down to increase controllability, because on supersonic the accuracy of the defeat can be up to 60m CEP. At low altitudes, the warhead must have a subsonic speed.

    I wrote about the same thing for comrades. I just didn't talk about the jettisonable power plant

      There is a publicly available patent of NPO Mashinostroenie (developer of Zircon) for a hypersonic missile.
      This is not classified information. There you can read about how Zircon works. Link:

      https://www1.fips.ru/fips_servl/fips_servlet?DB=RUPAT&DocNumber=2579409&TypeFile=html

      It is clear from the patent that Russia did not bother with the development of a hybrid scramjet engine, therefore Zircon is a gliding ammunition at the final stage with subsonic speed and without maneuverability. Most likely, the budget and time are limited, and the authorities gave the task to create something before the signing of START in order to intimidate America, like with the Vanguard.
      The United States, as always, has freedom, creativity, silicon valleys, an unlimited budget, several corporations and they will receive more advanced weapons than Zircon. This does not mean that the American will be faster, but it will definitely be more maneuverable, and this is the guarantee of a better air defense breakthrough.
      Unfortunately, 99% of people believed in the INVINCIBLE SUPER-WEAPON OF RUSSIA, which at Mach 8 will break the aircraft carriers in half .. In fact, the AUG is easy to intercept such a target as the Zircon warhead. In addition, AUG can supply carbon clouds that make ships invisible to IR and ARGSN.

        The standard S-300 missile defense system has a range of 75 km, but this is the point of the missile falling with its nose into the ground, and destroy it if it will be at an altitude above 10 km. This means that the radius for a high-altitude target must be at least 30% less.

        And here you are mistaken. It is not customary for us to indicate the range of missiles.
        We, for our complexes, indicate the FAR BORDER OF THE SAMPLING ZONE. And 75 km this is the distant border and not the range of the missile defense system. The range of the SAM flight is one and a half times higher.
        ZONE OF DAMAGE OF SAM - the area of ​​space within which the defeat of an air target by an anti-aircraft guided missile is ensured under the design conditions of firing with a given probability. Taking into account the effectiveness of shooting, it determines the reach of the complex in terms of height, range and heading parameter.
        The far border of the SAM defeat zone - the maximum range at which targets are hit with a probability not lower than the specified one.
        Summary - the launch range, the far border of the SAM defeat zone, the range of the SAM flight are not different values ​​either. And at a distance of 75 km, the S-300 air defense system hits targets in the entire range of altitudes.
        I will give an example from the Osse-MA that I once studied - the launch range at a transonic target is about 15 kilometers, the far border of the affected area = 10 km, the range of missiles along the optimal ballistic trajectory is up to 30 km.

    The presence of another engine will complicate the system, increase its size, and then it is unlikely to fit into cell 3C14. In addition, it is not known whether a conventional turbojet will work at such speeds. He also cannot release wings of a decent size.

    In the USSR, the X-90 was brought to the flight model, which in fact was the first hypersonic cruise missile, with a range of 3500 km, was launched from the Tu-160, showed 6M during tests, but the collapse of the USSR and the lack of money in Russia put the project on the shelf, as I understand now revived and improved based on these developments.

    But there is not a single confirmation of this significant event. This X-90 - the product of our journalists, who made a conclusion based on interviews, but, as always, composed to the maximum. I was at one of the MAKS, which demonstrated GELA - the prototype of the hypersonic apparatus, which received the name in the press X-90... To a question to a specialist who stood at this "unit" - "and how many times has she flown at this speed" the answer was received - "This is the theoretically calculated speed"

    Furthermore. The dimensions of the bomb bay on the TU-160 are such that this X-90... For this hypersonic missile, a Tu-160M ​​bomber with an oversized bomb bay was to be created, in which this missile could fit.
    Further. How could it be possible to test this X-90 on something, when for acceleration for the speed at which the hypersonic direct-flow engine will start working, a starting accelerator of decent size is needed.
    And the most important thing. Index X for air-to-ground missiles it is assigned only after the product is put into service or at least put on experimental combat duty (which is the forerunner of adoption). Until then, it only has a constructor index. But when X-90 was put into service - no one knows.

    For example... A cruise missile was created, which had an open (not secret) design index 9-A-2648... And only when it was put into service received its army name X-101... But its modification, which has not been adopted for service, has only a design index, but an index X- ..... - does not.
    Reanimate X-90 - and what kind of carrier will it have? After all, even with folded planes, she did not climb into the bomb bay
