The United States recognized the lack of technology for creating hypersonic weapons

The United States recognized that the program for creating an American hypersonic weapons faces a number of problems related to the lack of technology for this. This is the conclusion made by the authors of the report published on Monday by the US General Administration of Oversight (GAO, a body of Congress).


The document, entitled Hypersonic Weapons, says the United States may be late in implementing a hypersonic weapons program due to a lack of "critical technology." It is noted that since the start, the Pentagon representatives have managed to overcome "a number of problems", but many associated with the technical complexity of hypersonic systems still remain unresolved.

We identified a number of key technologies that were not sufficiently developed by the time the program was launched, which can create obstacles to the implementation of the program's objectives.

- the report says.

Earlier, the United States admitted that they are significantly lagging behind Russia and China in the creation of hypersonic weapons. As you know, at present, the development of American specialists is focused on the creation of hypersonic weapons for submarines (Conventional Prompt Strike), the Ground Forces (Long-Range Hypersonic Weapon) and the Air Force (AGM-183 Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon).

The Pentagon plans to receive the first production samples of new weapons by 2024.

    The business is to send spies to China, or buy their ideas from them, which, in fact, will turn out to be our ideas, stolen by the Chinese from Soviet developments. ..

    In Chinese ...
    In the West, the sun sets. And it rises in the East. This is not a fake, but a purely scientific fact ..

    The thought of a forum member from INOSmi.
    The lag of the United States in advanced military technologies confirms this fact ... I wish the Americans to continue to lag behind in the development of the latest weapons from Russia and China ... may there be peace in the whole world.

    having a printing press at hand, they will certainly solve the problem of creating hypersonic weapons ... time for the United States is not a decisive factor because no one is going to attack them (the World needs protection from amers) ... the lag says that the market is nothing there by itself regulates ... capitalism is generally not the best model (especially for protecting national interests) ... and Western education (and this is the cadre of engineers / designers) is not at all something worth striving for ...

      Lord again, this nonsense about "the printing press will buy everything." A bag of dough does not take a lot of things in the world. Did they buy a lot of atomic technologies from us or from China and France?

    Come on, Mister President will come up to the microphone and declare that they are straight, straight, tomorrow they will make a bunch of super-stubborn weapons, missiles and bring down .... they will bring them down, in short!
    And so, the enemy is powerful, arrogant, merciless ... we ourselves will be a little slower in the development of offensive defense systems, and he may have a desire to try to push or incite someone worse.

    An objective view of the problem is the first step towards solving it.

      I agree, they, of course, also like to shout, but here they are good fellows .. and given their financial capabilities, they will still bypass us in the volumes produced .. lack of money is our scourge - there are a lot of developments, but only a few go into the series .. well, like a series, pitiful practically piece games

    Everything was confused in my head!
    How so? They loudly announced monthly that they were forming units with hypersonic installations, they even made maneuvers; lifted planes with "prototypes" of hypersonic missiles; they loudly criticized Russian and Chinese already real missiles and prototypes.
    But! It can be seen from this article that all this is just an emulation of the fact that "the US Army is the most", and the armament of the US Army is the coolest, while the weapons of the Russians and Chinese are old communist rusty iron!
    Emulation in the style of Hollywood and Disney. They do not have a hypersonic missile. And it won't be for a long time.

        Exactly. You can read the book of our cosmonaut who first went into outer space - Alexei Leonov "The time of the first. My destiny is myself." In it, he, describing the flight together with the cosmonaut Pavel Belyaev into the Earth's orbit. There he described that instead of an altitude of 200 km. from ground level, they were thrown by mistake to a height of 475 km. And in the same place Leonov writes that he would have another 5 km. higher and the radiation belt of our planet began, where the radiation level is 500 roentgens per hour and they would not be able to return alive.
        Since the United States flew outside the planet's magnetic field, where such radiation acts, it is not clear. After all, their Apollo did not have some kind of anti-radiation coatings, at least somehow weakening the effect of radiation on a person. In addition, after the flights to the moon, the astronauts lived as if nothing had happened and without the obvious consequences of being in conditions of harsh radiation.
        I am already silent about other versions and proofs of staging.
        But, deep down in my heart, even in the direction of our enemies, I still admit the reality of the US program with a landing on it by the Moon. I'd like to believe that humanity has already reached these heights.

          to read the book of our cosmonaut, who went into outer space for the first time, Alexei Leonov, "The time of the first. My destiny is myself."
          The same Leonov (rest in peace to him!) Stubbornly objected to the arguments that the Americans had never landed on the moon. Even the manned flight into orbit around the Earth's satellite itself seems to be very problematic and dangerous today. I am far from conspiracy theories, but I suspect that our great cosmonaut had a reason to "play the same tune" with NASA on this topic: for example, something is mutually hiding about the joint Soyuz-Apollo flight, or else, from him, Leonov, personal participation.

        It's a pity the Chinese did not know about this and confirmed the presence of American technology on the moon where they left it. wink

      When I reminded in a similar article that the Pindos had not yet had a single launch of their new rocket, but only a suspension for an aircraft and they did not have missiles, I was bombarded with minuses.

          Well look:

          It was about the new AGM-183A rocket, which should reach a speed of 17 Mach, but has never flown before. The fact that in your video, the old Boeing X-51 with the last and only successful flight in 2013, as the Americans assure, she was able to reach a speed of 5 Mach. But for some reason, there were no more tests or launches, which gives rise to doubt about its characteristics and the statements of the United States, I'm not talking about adoption in service, so the United States does not have any hypersonic missiles in service.

      So after all, the Russian Federation so far has only the Avangard glider in a number of 4 pieces and with plans for another 8. So far, nothing more hypersonic has been adopted for service.

    Sounds believable. Hypersonic weapons are a monstrously complex thing, they need a very strong science and no less developed industry. So I foresee that after such a report, the Americans will increase funding and send the right people there to fill the knowledge gaps. I have always believed that it was not a shame to admit my ignorance.

      The first hypersonic missile was the V-2 rocket.
      Released on hypersound 5 MAX back in 1944.

    Indeed, the GAO is the organ of Congress. This is nothing more than the US Audit Office. It publishes about 900 (nine hundred!) Reports a year on all branches of the "national economy" of the United States.
    It should be understood that one cannot count on special competence in every single issue.
    And the article ... Well, that, a good article is a balm for wounds, oil for the soul. hi

    But how can it be, but they have a printing press and techinology, they will now print money and quickly do everything. Why, Blessed Elon will single-handedly design and make 1000 pieces per year. Or is it not about money, but a lack of knowledge and experience?

    As I understand it, the Americans, with their own hands, tore up the template of those who pray to the American flag (including in Russia). It is strange that they admit this with their arrogance and aggressiveness.

      Very critical, especially for the United States. And here it is not only about striking blows with this hypersound. And the point is that how could such a thing happen that the "backward" Russia technologically overtook America. This indicates a serious degradation of the United States. Since they, with their huge military budget, cannot even catch up with Russia, let alone overtake it.
