The United States tested a prototype of a new anti-ship missile

57

A successful flight test of a long-range anti-ship missile LRASM (Long Range Anti-Ship Missile) prototype missile has been conducted in the United States, ARMS-TASS reports with reference to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s DARPA.


The need to create a new anti-ship missile system is due to the fact that the missiles in the US Navy’s arsenal do not have sufficient flight range and are vulnerable to the breakthrough of the modern layered shipboard defense system.

The new LRASM anti-ship missile system is being developed by the DARPA and the United States Navy's research and development department based on an extended-range air-to-air missile launched at JASSM-ER (joint air-to-surface stand-off missile, extended range). PKP LARSM is equipped with armor-piercing or high-explosive warheads, is an autonomous all-weather weaponswhich can be applied at any time of the day.

Despite the fact that the LRASM ASM is created on the basis of the JASSM-ER rocket airframe, additional sensors and on-board systems are installed on it, which ensure its secrecy and durability for subsonic anti-ship weapons. In particular, the rocket has a multimode homing head (GOS), a data transmission line, and an improved digital noise-protected satellite navigation system for detecting and destroying high-priority targets in the ship's order.

One of the significant improvements of the new weapon is the ability to receive or update target designation data in flight. Unlike the JASSM rocket, used in the autonomous mode, using the “shot-and-forget” principle, new technologies ensure the launch of an anti-ship rocket and the correction of its flight.

DARPA conducted a demonstration flight test of a new missile to test its flight performance and on-board equipment in free flight. In addition, the rocket, equipped with an inert warhead, also found and hit the uninhabited floating mobile target MST (Mobile Ship Target) with a length of 80 meters.

The test was conducted by the 337-th flight test squadron of the US Air Force, based on the Air Force Base Dyes (Texas) with the use of a B-1 bomber as the carrier of the missile. The missile was launched from an aircraft over the water area of ​​the Point Mugu (California) sea test site. Initially, the rocket flew along a pre-programmed trajectory, and for about half the flight distance to the target, it switched to autonomous guidance, during which it independently discovered a moving surface target and struck it.

During the flight, the subsonic rocket was accompanied by an F / A-18 fighter from the 31 th flight test squadron in China Lake (California).

The main contractor for the LRASM weapon complex is Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control (LMMFC). The BAE Systems Information and Electronic Systems Integration Division (BAE Systems' Information and Electronic Systems Integration division) is the lead contractor for the onboard sensors of the new rocket.

    What about the railgun? Laser cannon? Looks have already taken up the mind once the rockets began to test.

        What you can’t refuse to the Americans is that they can make cartoons!
        A couple of years ago I saw how they struck a rocket at the start with a laser, and then they closed this program and supposedly it was only theoretically. And at first all the cranes shouted at all the rockets!

      Perhaps the fact that it distracts forces, minds and means from the development of unmanned and manned spacecraft for the study of the solar system, for example. I strongly doubt something that the developments in the field of detecting moving ships in the ocean and the ability to destroy them correctly will be useful to us in this. Although ... who knows. :-(

        Yes, sad of course ... But it seems that the matter is going to a logical conclusion!

        30.07.2013/22350/186 Project XNUMX, which is being built at the Severnaya Verf Shipbuilding Plant OJSC, was completely aboard the head frigate frigate Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov, a full-time crew of XNUMX people. This was reported to the Central Naval Portal by a source at the enterprise.
        By the time the crew of the ship moved into the ship, the shipyards of the Northern Shipyard had prepared cabins, cockpits, a dining room, a wardroom, a galley, medical unit rooms, bathrooms, showers, water supply, ventilation and air conditioning systems, all the necessary electrical equipment and communications were working properly.
        In late June, refrigerated vehicles were put into operation on the ship. The first consignments of frozen food products were loaded into provisional storage rooms: fish, meat. Now the entire frigate crew is provided with provisions.

        31.07.2013/22350/XNUMX Severnaya Verf Shipyard began mooring trials of the head frigate of Project XNUMX Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov

        The beginning of the first stage of factory trials of the frigate is scheduled for mid-autumn 2013

        God grant that with other ships in the series it was better! Difficult, but necessary, the situation in the Mediterranean is now clear.

            And the worse? So what can not be used with TA? In terms of size, LRASM is smaller, in mass, too. It is clear that the filling could have been issued in Tomahawk, but the LRASM uses a serial case from JASSM-ER with stealth technology, which is not on Tomahawk. By the way, according to history, the choice was between SLAM-ER and LRASM, the tomahawk was not even considered.

              Flight range is less than 1,5 times (in principle, a small loss for subsonic anti-ship missiles - the Ax hardly had a chance to find a target at the maximum declared range)

              No SUB Version

              Standardization / unification / cheaper - unlike LRASM, the Toporov family had dozens of modifications for various carriers and applications. Seven troubles - one answer, the whole difference in the type of warhead and GOS

              Finally, BGM-109B, like all Axes, appeared 30 years earlier - it is strange that the Yankees are still stuck at the same level
              It’s clear that computers and stealth, but you have to do something with LTX rockets! Supersonic, etc.

              By the way, how is LRASM with a path there? - Ax the whole route flew to PMV

                Well, the Tomahawk could not fly the entire route to PMV, in the sense of the RCC variant. RLGSN thing is heavy and massive, so as far as I remember with the anti-ship missile system Tomahawk flight took place at medium altitudes, at a certain range a snake was flying to capture the target of the RLGSN, after the capture Tomahawk already went to the PMV and made a slide and dive to the target before the target. At LRASM, the flight will most likely take place along different paths depending on the guidance.

        Before embedding the American pictures and spreading our fleet, you would have looked at the essence of the idea .. looked a bit into the future, Dear SWEET_SIXTEEN .. but what is not given is not given, it seems ..
        I didn’t write, as SWEET_SIXTEEN put it, about lagging amers ... I just said that their fleet is aging .. and given the US military budget cuts, it will age and the funds to maintain it in such quantity (although I not talking about quality) - no and never will ..
        Why this replica was taken is generally unclear ..:
        Quote: SWEET_SIXTEEN
        with whom are the Yankees desperately "trying to balance the situation at sea"? Is it really ... Russia !?

        Since no one foresees this in the near future .. our Pacific Fleet only enters the region only in 10-ku - this is clear to everyone ..
        But as for China, the fact is that, according to many experts, they are already capable of launching an average ship into the water a day now .. the level of their industry and economy is not only worried about amers now .. and this fleet is new and what the most interesting thing is not much inferior in quality and equipment ..
        Another replica:

        Firstly, this news is about aviation.

        I absolutely agree that aviation missiles .. but they are thinking about dominance at sea, dear SWEET_SIXTEEN. They understand that where the fleet cannot work out - anti-ship missiles will work out .. the topic is marine - the ultimate goals are there .. And just in case, and the amers will not develop and test anything just like that, they just to support the fleet and create anti-ship missiles (since their ships, in particular aircraft carriers and many others, have been 30-40 years ago).
        With respect.. hi

        Vika:
        "It is assumed that the missile will be adopted in 2015 and will be launched from the UVK Mk.41, as well as from F-35C fighters."
        secondly, for Russia, a fleet comparable in strength to a US fleet is not needed in principle. but China has recently commissioned more ships than Russia and the United States combined.
        so do not post nonsense here, because there is a saying that "worse than a traitor"

          As far as I know, the performance characteristics of the 3M54 rocket are in the public domain, in the open only 3M54E, i.e. for Clab.
          Regarding supersonic sound, take the same 3M-54E in the final section, it flies at an altitude of 10m. with a speed of 2.9M at this height, it can be detected in about 15-20km. i.e., the air defense of a carobel has about 20 seconds to react, which is practically not realistic, but against the sound one there is more than a minute. At farther distances stealth technologies are not particularly strongly affected, since the rocket will still be behind the garrison.

            The United States developed SM-6 SAMs just to defeat anti-ship missiles at the horizon beyond the horizon, beyond the radio horizon. So the use of ultra-low altitudes and supersonic is no longer a guarantee of defeat.

      They have many good parameters, but there is one that crosses out everything. Dimensions and weight. For example, anti-ship missiles Granite could be carried only by atomic cruisers pr.1144, TAKR Kuznetsov and nuclear submarines pr.949 designed specifically for these missiles. Set the RCC Granite as an example on the TFR pr.1135 or replace the submarine pr 670M RCC Malachite could not be considered. As a result, in the USSR there was a huge range of anti-ship missiles and their carriers are absolutely not interchangeable. Hence the difficulties with operation, a change of basing.

    This is not bad news.
    LRASM, like its progenitor - airborne missile launchers AGM-158 JASSM - subsonic ammunition with conventional performance characteristics (flight range ~ 350 ... 1000 km depending on the mod., Warhead ~ 1000 fn. (454 kg) + stealth technology and etc. Hi-tech, as well as an "advanced" guidance system:

    the missile has a multi-mode homing head (GOS), a data line, an advanced digital noise-immune satellite navigation system for detecting and destroying the most priority targets in a ship’s warrant.
    all this, of course, is interesting


    Start AGM-158 JASSM with F-16

    But the real PPC will come if the Yankees bring to mind Rattls - "a system of naval combat with a critically short reaction time" - in other words, a hypersonic anti-ship missile system with a range of 500 km, ship-based

        Well, as an additive. At the end of August of this year, Rayton tested the new SM-6 missile launcher, two SM-6s were launched from a Ticonderoga-type cruiser, which destroyed two BQM-74 aerial targets simulating low-flying anti-ship missiles at an out-of-range range. On the SM-6 missiles installed ARLGSN from the rocket-in AIM-120 AMRAAM.
        Unfortunately, this news was not seen on this site, although the ability to shoot down horizontal targets deprives the RCC of the advantage of imperceptibly sneaking up on the target at low altitudes outside the radio horizon.

                17.07.2013/16/15 an experiment took place, the JLENS system detected and escorted a cruise missile, transmitting data on its trajectory via a Link-XNUMX standard data line to the US Air Force F-XNUMXE, allowing it to perform targeted functions and launch the AMRAAM missile, which ended in destroying the target (simulator low flying RCC).

        Back in the late 1970s, a radar (!) Guidance system for Pershing-2 missiles was created. And what speeds are there - it's easy to imagine - up to 9 Machs! Accuracy (CVO) - 30 meters

        Tomahawk Block IV (transonic flight speed) learned to reprogram in flight, got a mode of barrage (waiting) and the ability to hit moving targets (including sea)

        Subsonic RCC differs from supersonic like Matiz from Chevrolet Tahoe
        starting mass Amersky Harpoon - approx. 700 kg
        the starting mass of our Onyx is 3 tons, Mosquito - even larger - 4 tons
        the reason is the huge energy required to accelerate a rocket to speeds above 1M

        Any supersonic anti-ship missile system has many restrictions on carriers - not every aircraft will be able to raise such a "fool". Who, besides the destroyer, pr. 956, will be able to carry Mosquito? !!

        ETOGES is not a universal "Harpoon", in the role of carriers of which they acted (acted):

        ship-based, harpoon placed in

        - cells of the 8-charge boxed PU anti-submarine complex ASROK (frigates "Knox")
        - Deck shop "one-armed bandit" Mk.13 (frigates "Perry")
        - Launched with a girder launcher Mk.11 (destroyers "Adams")




        underwater base:
        SUB-Harpoon - submarines "Los Angeles", "Virginia", British, Japanese, etc. boats starn NATO and US allies

                  Maybe I'm wrong, but it seemed to me that even the Black Bird was heated to a temperature close to the melting of titanium. But he obviously did not fly at sea level, and the speed was certainly not 11km / s.

                  Meteorites, as well as descent vehicles (which, I note, are pre-braked), first enter the discharged upper layers of the atmosphere and there they are braked first, and only then they are warmed up in dense layers. So there are lower speeds.

                  It’s hardly possible to use plasma as a super-antenna, since it is extremely capricious and unstable. In theory, this is all very wonderful, but I'm afraid it is not applicable in practice.

                  Again, the DF-21, like Pershing, are ballistic missiles.

                  Ps read once again about pershing warheads, did not see where it says that they maneuver in the atmosphere. Behind the atmosphere - yes. Maybe share a reference as an educational program?

                    The Pershing-2 control system was supplemented by a warhead guidance system on the final section of the trajectory according to the radar map of the area (RADAG system). Such a system on ballistic missiles has not previously been used. A set of command devices was located on a stabilized platform placed in a cylindrical body, and had its own electronic control unit. The operation of the control system was provided by an on-board digital computer complex, housed in 12 removable modules, and protected by an aluminum case.

                    The RADAG system consisted of an airborne radar station and a correlator. The radar was screened and had two antenna units. One of them was intended to obtain a radar brightness image of the terrain, the other to determine the altitude. The image of the ring type under the head part was obtained by scanning around a vertical axis, with an angular speed of 2 rpm. Four reference images of the target area for different heights were stored in the memory of the digital computer in the form of a matrix, each cell of which was the radar brightness of the corresponding area, recorded in two-digit binary number. To a similar matrix, the actual image of the terrain received from the radar was reduced, when compared with the reference one, it was possible to determine the error of the inertial system.

                    The flight of the warhead was corrected by the executive bodies - jet nozzles operating from a cylinder with compressed gas outside the atmosphere, and aerodynamic rudders with hydraulic drive at the entrance to the atmosphere.

                        In the discharged air at an altitude of 24 km on the M3.2, the SR-71 was easily warmed up to 300 degrees, therefore in its "cheekbones" located on the sides along the fuselage and cooling shirts were located. This, of course, helped (including cooling the cockpit), but judge for yourself if the maximum recorded heating of the casing at this height at an ambient temperature of -50 was 540 degrees Celsius (at the maximum allowable 427C for titanium casing of this aircraft), then what can we say about 9 swings at sea level?

                        for example, for Soyuz spacecraft, which enter the atmosphere at a speed of 7,6 km / s at an altitude of 33 km, the speed decreases to 2 km / s

        Meteorites, as well as descent vehicles (which, I note, are pre-braked), first enter the discharged upper layers of the atmosphere and there they are braked first, and only then they are warmed up in dense layers. So there are lower speeds.

        In discharged upper layers, the main heating occurs and the hypersonic speed is maintained at a height of about 100 km, then the speed drops and in dense layers of the atmosphere at a height of about 15 km, the speed becomes approximately equal to the speed of sound, combustion stops, the protective hood stops and the pershing head 2 starts to work, sometimes apply the dispersal of the combat unit. And communication through plasma is still somewhere in the RAS.

    then, that the plasma enveloping the hypersonic aircraft in dense layers does not allow electromagnetic waves to pass either in or out.

    this is largely a mythical problem

    The "plasma cloud" you mentioned appears only at VERY high speeds - 20M or more (a good example: the speed of meteorites entering the Earth’s atmosphere is 11..72 km / s)

    (by the way, even in this case radio communication is possible - the “plasma” (magnetic-energy envelope) has a complex structure and communication with the device can be supported by various technical methods: a built-in heat-resistant tip-antenna or long “tail”, finally, the plasma itself is beautiful conductor - you can generate a signal and radiate it using plasma as a super-antenna (Hettinger's patent from 1919)

    In Pershing-2 this problem was simply not observed - the speed is max. - 9M (real 7-8M), while in the final correction section (below 40 km) the BB speed should be even lower

    By the way, the Chinese use a similar guidance scheme - ballistic anti-ship missiles of the DF-21 series with a radar guidance system

      The head part had a significant (more than a ton) weight and consisted of three compartments: guidance systems (lower), warhead and radar device. The head part was covered by a casing, which was discharged before the start of the radar at an altitude of about 15 km. Stabilization of the flight of the warhead was carried out using inertial devices. The Pershing-2 missile was supposed to use two types of warheads - the usual power of up to 50 kt and penetrating into the ground. The second option was distinguished by high elongation and high strength and was made of high strength steel. At a speed of approach of the head part to the target of 600 m / s, the head part deepened into the ground by about 25 m

      In general, it turns out that there is no control in the plasma, with hypersound there is no.

      1 - cassette with a reference image of the target area;
      2 - target (airfield); 3 - ground equipment for converting target area reconnaissance data into a digital formula; 4 - correction signal supplied to the aerodynamic wheels; 5 - computer with a correlator; 6 - the head of the rocket; 7 - target area; 8 - digital processor.

        Michael, I'm afraid that your Soviet training manual was mistaken

        As far as I managed to find out, Pershing HAD NO resettable fairing

        There was a plastic radiolucent fairing, which served as a heat shield - the radar antenna rotated inside.

        Most likely, the one who compiled the training manual incorrectly got acquainted with the source - the Pershig-2 really had a removable protective tip, but it was used for transportation on the ground, and was removed before launch

        The nose of Pershing-2

          The warhead (warhead) of the rocket, having a length of 4,2 m and a mass of 1362 kg, consists of three compartments: the nose, middle and tail. The radar of the guidance system in the final section of the flight (RADAG system), closed by a radome, is installed in the bow compartment. The fairing is made of radiolucent ablative material that can withstand heat loads when the MS comes into the atmosphere. It was originally planned to cover the PP fairing with a special casing, which would provide additional heat absorption. However, later, in order to reduce the thermal regime of HF, it was decided to quench the speed of HF due to aerodynamic drag when it enters the upper atmosphere.

      At the moment we are talking about GOS, providing target designation and guidance at hypersonic flight speeds

      No problems were noted here:
      existed as supersonic anti-ship missiles (Granite, Volcano, Mosquito), capable of aiming at a target at a flight speed of 2,5M ... 3M

      as well as ballistic missiles (Tor, Pershing-2, Dongfeng-21), whose warheads were aimed at point targets, using hypersonic radar-assisted seeker - almost 9M (despite the mythical “plasma cloud”)

      As for the defeat of moving targets - cruise and ballistic missiles have long learned this focus:
      Soviet supersonic anti-ship missiles, Tomahawk Block 4 (albeit subsonic, but highly accurate), Chinese ballistic (hypersound) anti-ship missiles DF-21 (believe it or not, but it seems to me that the Chinese are close to creating such a system - there are no fundamental problems and limitations in this is not)

    Oleg, you completely confused the people with these Pershing. As the saying goes, the devil is in the details. Firstly, in order to make possible the operation of the airborne radar and not load the rocket with a resettable thermowell, confining itself to a radiolucent ablative radome, the speed begins to be extinguished even in the upper atmosphere due to aerodynamic drag. At an altitude of 1 km, when the radar ceases to operate, the speed is about 600 m / s, which in general is not so much. Secondly, a fairly simple onboard radar is not looking for a target. It is important! It only roughly scans a plot of terrain, which is then compared with the reference matrix. In all sections of the flight path of the rocket, including the latter, there is an inertial guidance system based on reference maps. The radar on this missile is only a pleasant addition to the inertial one, increasing accuracy, and therefore allowing the use of non-special. warhead. This is for the Pershing. Chinese ballistic anti-ship missile, a separate issue.

    The so-called missile tests of the Kh-35UE missile, launched from launchers placed in a standard Club-K complex cargo container, were successfully passed. Start was carried out on August 22 at one of the specialized training grounds.

    The X-35 anti-ship missile is stealth and flying to the target at a height of no more than fifteen meters, and four meters at the end of the trajectory. The combined homing system and powerful warhead allow one missile to destroy a warship with a displacement of 5000 tons.
    Successfully tested on August 22 showed - Club-K is not a fiction, but a real-life combat system. As it became known to RG, similar tests with 3M-54E and 3M-14E missiles are currently being prepared. By the way, the 3M-54E missile is capable of destroying even an aircraft carrier.
