Military Review

In the United States called the technology to prevent Chinese missile threats

27

In the Indo-Pacific region, China is seen as the main threat to the interests of the United States and its allies. Recently, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin held a virtual meeting with Japanese Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi and Defense Secretary Nobuo Kishi. The main issue raised at the meeting was the integration of the efforts of the two states in the direction of countering the Chinese military threat.


As Blinken noted, the United States and Japan can combine their strengths and then they will be able to surpass other countries in innovation. The head of the State Department called the Japanese-American alliance more important than ever before. The agreement between the countries, by the way, was concluded the next day after another test of the North Korean ballistic missile Hwaseong-8.

The US is concerned about North Korea's ability to launch the Hwaseong-8 missile in one direction and then change that direction. Such a missile flight can disable missile defense systems, including the famous THAAD. If North Korea can hit THAAD, then the next targets will be military and civilian infrastructure in South Korea and Japan.

But much more ambitious still remains the threat of hypersonic weapons China. After all, Beijing is constantly improving its hypersonic weapons technology, having managed to move further in this direction than the United States. China is adopting technologies that can help control drones and aircraft, and has developed an advanced process for manufacturing engines for hypersonic projectiles.

Washington has already recognized the existing lag behind China in the field of hypersonic weapons. So now the Pentagon is trying to catch up. At the meeting of US and Japanese officials, key areas were identified that should be developed and in which technological advantages should be ensured. There are four such directions.

These are artificial intelligence, machine learning, directed energy and quantum computing. In each of the areas, both the United States and Japan are now conducting large-scale research, the main goal of which is to reach a level of development that will neutralize the threats from China and North Korea in the Indo-Pacific region.

The United States does not rely on any one of these areas, trying to invest in their development as a whole. It is believed that progress in quantum computing will help create an artificial intelligence system of a level that is several orders of magnitude more perfect than those that exist today. The option of improving directed energy systems is also being considered. Here, funding is directed, among other things, to the creation of power sources for such systems. Ultimately, the sources should become compact and more energy-intensive.

    N-yes. The United States and Japan lag behind the DPRK in hypersound. Japan! Nafik you such "masters"?
    About the PRC and, accordingly, "the backlog of the United States and Japan in other directions" - I am silent, although they are even more extensive. Question! You pay money to the States annually for what? ($4 billion for the presence of the American contingent in Japan).

        PRC.

        You are somewhat "behind" as well. North Korea has already tested "hypersound" last year (successful). The Pentagon officially recognized this back in the fall.
        "Hwaseong-8" with a hypersonic gliding unit, their product is called.

            Of course it means. It's not just about how I "put it". It's about reality and fixing facts. And the recognition of this by the Pentagon.
            By the way, if it helps in finding information. January 5 and January 11 - the last test. The last time the distance was about 1000 km.

                Here is the fact.) The presence of confirmed launches.
                Meanwhile, the same Americans are facing huge problems in the development of hypersonic systems. Suffice it to recall the partially successful and unsuccessful tests of the Boeing X-51 Waverider. In addition, all three flight tests of the latest AGM-183 ARRW (Air-Launched Rapid Response Weapon) air-launched system ended in actual failure. More recently, it was going to be adopted "soon." Now the future of the entire project raises a natural question.
                The "DPRK" managed to make launches - this is a fact. The States failed. And this is also a fact. Recognized by them. Or do you think that "all the same, the States are cooler in everything"? We are talking specifically about "hypersound".

                    Chesslovo, hard with you. Are you reading hypersound news for the first time today? In the fall, I laughed for a long time about this nonsense (the US lagging behind the DPRK in hypersound). I continue now. If you are interested - hammer in a search engine - read it. I'm already giving you information about unsuccessful American launches (everyone!). I give information about successful launches (dates are given) of the DPRK. What else do you need? In October / November, the Pentagon made a statement about the hypersound of the DPRK (in my opinion, September 22 is the first successful launch).

                  about successful tests in the USA of the Hypersonic Air-breathing Weapon Concept:

                  “A speed of Mach 5 may not seem very impressive, but it should be emphasized that here we are dealing with an air-breathing engine, and not a “glider” (glider or aeroballistic missile). For such missiles, in principle, "low" hypersound is assumed to be quite a typical characteristic. In any case, this speed has not yet been achieved by any type of weapon using this technology, although in Russia (as well as, for example, in China, India and Japan), a lot of such projects have been and are being carried out.”, Dmitry Stefanovich, a researcher at the Center for International Security at the IMEMO RAS, comments on the tests.

                    For some, hypersound is a glider gliding without an engine from space.
                    For others, hypersound is a cruise missile flying in the atmosphere with the engine constantly on.

                    And some generally call ballistic missiles hypersonic. smile

                    According to periodicals - [/ quote]. The hypersonic glide warhead separated from the launched missile made a flight of 600 km, and then performed a lateral maneuver at a rate of 240 km. And as a result, she hit a sea target at a total range of a thousand kilometers. At the same time, a week earlier, on January 5, 2022, the DPRK also successfully launched a hypersonic missile, the warhead of which maneuvered, deviated by 120 km, and hit a target at a distance of 700 km

                    The DPRK managed to develop speed and maneuvering. While there is no fact indicating accuracy, let's be frank.
                    But consider that this is not so - I somehow do not care.

    So in quantum computers, China is also ahead of them.

      the comparison of a quantum and conventional computer is incorrect: a quantum computer does not solve all problems faster, but only with suitable algorithms.
      when you read about the achievements of China, you should be aware that the source is Chinese propaganda. not that it is necessary to divide by 10, but to be aware that a large country has big problems, which requires a serious attitude towards hiding the real state of affairs.
