The Pentagon has declared the uselessness of American interceptors

"We need to create more reliable systems," - said the deputy head of the military department, noting that the current technology is "poorly designed," reports Reuters.


At the same time, Kendall stressed that the problem of the imperfections of modern technology lies not in the lack of funding, but in the rush with which interceptor missiles were introduced and therefore were not tested properly.

Earlier in the Pentagon stated that they plan to ask the US Congress to provide 4,5 billion dollars of additional funding for improvement over the five years of the missile defense system. At the same time 560 million dollars from these funds should go to the new interceptor missiles.

Raytheon is the largest supplier of the US Department of Defense. More than 90% of its revenue comes from defense orders. It was Raytheon who developed the Patriot anti-aircraft missile system and Tomahawk cruise missiles.

      Yes, no, everything is simpler - corruption, which in the SGA (USA) is called democratic-liberal lobbyism! It’s necessary to cut money, some announce that, like, bad weapons, they need to be improved, others that Russia and China are threatening, still others vote for the allocation of funds, then the babosy share, everyone is good !!! But God forbid you call it corruption, then you are a representative of the bloody regime Pu!

      Last year, the United States conducted three missile defense exercises. Twice the exercises ended in failure. And it was they who stood in a pre-known area, knew approximately height and speed.

      What can we say about missiles that have electronic warfare systems, have false blanks and change course in height and direction?

        Are you not reading the news? Remember 2 ballistic missiles allegedly launched by Israel towards Syria. In the very beginning, they are launched by America. But the Russian air defense systems blew up one, and the second was reprogrammed and it changed the trajectory of the meeting. Obama was shocked and canceled the assault on Syria. And shortly before that, the 4 tomahawk was shot down, but at first Obama was not convinced of the strength of our air defense. Why don’t you follow the events?

      There are no combat lasers that are capable of piercing the missile body in the world at all. Everything that is shown mainly by window dressing. And they consume a lot of energy and heat up very much, so modern lasers cannot act quickly. By the time the Americans create the battle laser, there will be one too. We already have an optoelectronic suppression laser, but it is designed to protect aviation from anti-aircraft missiles with homing heat heads - it shoots with a beam along the sensors and the missile deviates from the course. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfxHWWqsRQI)
      There are also lasers on the t-90, but there is something completely different.

    The simulation results at the simultaneous launch of ICBMs and the [existing] SM-3 block IA missile are presented in the figure. The automatic missile defense and missile defense are hidden, the display of trajectories begins after the end of the automatic missile defense.



    It is known that work is currently underway and tests of a new, more powerful modification of this anti-missile, the SM-3 block IIA, will begin in the near future. The characteristic "thickening" of the rocket is just due to the increase in the amount of fuel and, according to existing calculations, provides a significant increase in energy. The speed at the end point of the OUT of this anti-missile is estimated at 5500 m / s, both according to our data and according to open American sources. Does such energy allow interception in the considered conditions?



    The answer is yes, it allows. It is clearly seen that now the energy sector can reach heights even greater than the apogee of ICBMs, and there is also a fairly large time margin between the arrival at the interception point of the missile defense and ICBM elements. But...

      Firstly, this modification of the rocket should go into service according to the most optimistic forecasts for Americans, no earlier than 2018.
      Secondly, they are experiencing a number of technical problems with missiles and the Aegis BMD 4.0.1 system as a whole. Such as the informational interaction of detection, target designation and missile defense system, the possibility of interception maneuvering breeding stage, selection of targets when using PCB, features of the operation of anti-ballistic missiles on SLBMs and several others. In particular, there are problems with SM-3 Block IB in which they are trying to solve all of the above problems, especially in connection with the appearance of our mace. The first test took place in May 2012.
      A test of a new US missile defense missile failed. In the future, Standard Missile (SM) -3 Block IB should intercept intercontinental missiles and become one of the key elements of the new European missile defense. According to the expert, due to the unsuccessful launch of the interceptor, American missile defense development programs can be seriously adjusted.

      "Mace" was left without an interceptor
      However, this does not change the fundamental essence of the potential danger of the SM-3 block IIA anti-missile defense.
      And although a number of measures are being taken to counter these threats, nevertheless, declaring that there is no danger from the European segment of the sea-based missile defense with the SM-3 missiles is neither technically nor politically incorrect. The military leadership of Russia knows this and US missile defense measures are implemented precisely given these potential future threats.

    To the heap ...

    During the development of the F-35 fighter jet, created for the US armed forces, new potential obstacles arose. This time it is not a matter of the structural integrity of the fighter, or even of its military significance. The problem is the vulnerability of the aircraft to hackers. The F-35 helmet provides an overview of augmented reality, which is served by six cameras located on the aircraft body. Thanks to this, the pilot can look anywhere in the cockpit, and instead of seeing the interior of the aircraft, directly through the cameras to observe what is happening outside. This computer performance is completely controlled by a computer system called ALIS.
    According to American media, ALIS “is very similar to a laptop computer, and the pilot carries it on a plane, where it inserts the device into a special hole located next to it in the cockpit. The device contains all the information about the mission to which it flies. The servers managing all these programs occupy a space approximately equal to the size of a container for shipping. This is a very tempting target for hackers. If your opponents can crack all the programs that control the [mission], then they will essentially destroy the plane. And all this without a single shot. " Thus, the ALIS system seems to have been given too much power over the F-35. For example, ALIS is able to land an aircraft indefinitely if it detects any malfunctions in the aircraft. If hackers manage to break into the network that ALIS depends on, it is entirely possible that they could disable the entire F-35 fleet. This would make the aircraft, the most expensive set of military equipment, completely useless.

    It is time for Russia to get a trump card from its sleeves. It is necessary to immediately begin negotiations on the deployment of a Euro-Asian missile defense system. Together with countries such as China, India, Iran, you can completely cover the continent. I am sure then to catch up with other countries. I think it will be a worthy response to Ukrainian events and many other nasty things that McCain and other American hawks are still planning.

    When politicians began to believe the military about the reliability of the American missile defense system, they began to fan another war with redoubled zeal. And for the military and developers, the "point" is not an iron one, with a real goal, everything will be revealed at once. Therefore, they decided to hide behind tight deadlines, and at the same time ask for more money.

    September 18th test SM-3: the interception of the target occurred at the highest altitude for the entire organization of such tests.
    there are footage of how a missile interceptor hits an almost motionless target. When intercepting ballistic targets, this can not be in principle, because the speed of the warhead is in any case either higher or at least equal to the speed of the interceptor missile.
