US Navy launches SM-6 anti-aircraft missiles

The US Navy is deploying a new extended-range Standard Missile-6 shipboard air defense system to achieve initial combat readiness, December reports ASDNews 2.


“We are very pleased that we have the opportunity to start this process in accordance with the schedule, it will be historical achievement, "said the ship systems program manager weapons US Navy (Captain Mike Ladner (Mike Ladner).

The SM-6 provides protection against aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles and cruise missiles. The product has a glider and an engine from existing missiles with advanced signal processing capabilities and an active radar seeker from the AIM-120 AMRAAM air strikes in addition to the semi-active guidance system.

“This monumental moment means a new era for our fleet“The SM-6 will hit targets at extra-long ranges,” says Raytheon Missile Systems president Dr. Taylor W. Lawrence. The company, as part of small-scale production, has already delivered the Navy more than 50 missiles of this type, in September it received a contract for the production of 89 more missiles, which will be the beginning of full-scale serial production.

      No different from the SM-3 Lock1B of the same manufacturer, and the GOS is identical to the airborne AIM-120C7 AMRAAM. It seems to me that this is a unified missile from the Aegis system, it only works as a missile system and not a missile defense system. In particular, it can receive target designation from the JLENS a high-altitude network system for detecting and protecting against cruise missiles (Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System) which is based on conventional helium balloons equipped with X-band radars with a circular view.
      It turns out such a radar station on duty at an altitude of 3km. Two radars are placed under the belly, one for detecting targets at ranges up to 550 km, and the second for targeting weapons. Communication based on the standard Link 16. protocol and therefore integrated with all American airborne surveillance and control systems from AWACS to Aegis ASBU. In addition, they are equipped with radiation stations for GPS-like signals - the so-called “pseudo-lithioms”, which will make it possible to build a high-precision navigation field at the defense lines. It will complement the signals of GPS satellites or act independently of them, which increases the flexibility and stability of the system. The latter is especially important when the enemy suppresses satellite GPS constellation.
      In September last year, the JLENS test coupled with the Standard Missile-6 (SM-6) long-range anti-aircraft missile system successfully passed the test site in the state of New Mexico. SAM, induced by the "heavenly eye", confidently hit the cruise missile target.


      So all this canoe for the ship is too cumbersome, so the Americans came up with this method. The mother ship (airship carrier) will be one and the information from the airship will be transmitted to several ships equipped with the SM-6 air defense system at once.
      In April this year, the Swift 4th Fleet transport catamaran was converted into a balloon carrier. It was officially reported that his “balloon” is used to identify the routes of drug dealers and smugglers in the Caribbean.
      It seems that Swift is being tested as a uterus of JLENS-type vehicles.

        According to the Lexington Institute, in September 2014 the deployment of the first JLENS units will begin, which will provide control of the East Coast of the United States from New York to Rind.
        In total, it is planned to purchase 12 JLENS production kits for $ 1,6 billion. The main plus of balloons - carriers is that they are cheap, simple and economical in comparison with aircraft AWACS. But the main drawback is that this canoe will immediately fly away with a gusty and even more so hurricane wind, which occurs on the West Coast and in the Gulf of Mexico very often. Yes, and as a target, the balloon is practically defenseless against the simplest types of weapons.
        I’m thinking about whether to use this experience in the Arctic seas, as one of the additional ones for creating a single radar field and as a means of guiding missiles and anti-ship missiles. ?

        Not quite right. GOS adapted GOS from AIM-120C7 AMRAAM, increased diameter from 7 inches to 13,5.

        In particular, yes, but in the tests, intercept beyond the horizon was carried out with guidance from Hokai.

    And what analogue do we have?

        Do not lie. We have no analogues. If C-300 was installed on ships, then C-200 and C-400 were not. At C-300, the GOS is semi-active and cannot receive target designation from external sources.

          Yes, and C-300 carriers can be counted on the fingers, and SM-6 will go to any ship with the Mk-41 UVP.

    Well, about all cruise missiles, they clearly gave out wishful thinking !!!
