Military Review

The updated missile defense system will be tested in the United States this year.

38
Until the end of 2016, the US military plans to test the elements of the updated missile defense system against an intercontinental missile, reports RIA News report by the Head of the Missile Defense Agency, James Siring.




According to him, "the test will be conducted against an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that has an electronic suppression system."

“Later this year, for the first time, we will conduct a flight test aimed at such an ICBM,” added Siring.

"Of course, this is due to the scenarios relating to the DPRK and Iran," he said.

    “Of course, this is due to scenarios regarding the DPRK and Iran.”

    Of course, this system is exclusively sharpened against the DPRK and Iran! Not against Russia, is it really? Russian "Yars" do not pose a threat at all, in contrast to the pinnacle of technical thought - the newest North Korean "Tephodons" and Iranian "Emads" (even if the latter will be even without a nuclear warhead).

        “It is much more interesting how the new missile defense system will prove to be when working on targets that have electronic suppression.” It is even more interesting how long the Americans will produce and replace the old ones with these complexes (unless, of course, the tests are successful), and will the nuclear war begin much earlier?

      Well, then you write correctly. The US missile defense system is useless against our ICBMs. But it will master the interception of single BR Iranian or Korean. Not 100% of course, but rather with a high probability.

        In the accelerating section of the trajectory, even the most modern ICBMs are vulnerable. A purely American global missile defense system does not exist (that is, one that would be located in the United States). We are talking about the Euro-ABM system, which is being formed directly near our land and sea borders.

            Not only.

            Another example is GBI, or THAAD at the end site.


            There is also an X-band radar towed to the alleged (very conditional) area of ​​the submarine’s presence with ICBMs, for early detection by the SM-3 interceptor from Berkov at the acceleration site (Berkov missile defense of the order of 30 units already).

          No ground interceptor has time to intercept
          at the booster stage of the ICBM, which starts from the depths
          the territory of Russia. Even if the interceptor starts second-to-second with ICBMs.
          Just do not have time to catch up.
          Only if they put the ICBM launchers at the westernmost border,
          interception will be possible. But there are no such fools.

          Perhaps only from the stratosphere can be in time (with a laser, for example)
          to bang the first stage of the ICBM. But for this you need to have time to go down
          from space exactly at the time of launch.

            You are a little mistaken. No one talks about the acceleration section. Sm-3 Euro missile defense should not catch up with the ICBMs - its trajectory CROSSES the trajectory of ICBMs.
            The theory is precisely in interception on cross-paths

              You are absolutely right. I just commented on Ami du peuple's post about
              takeoff opportunities on takeoff.
              Alaska missile defense is trying to intercept the ICBMs in the middle of the trajectory.
              With approximately 50% success rate. Those. while one ICBM is needed
              launch 2-3 missile defense.

              .. beautiful picture .. hi .. but only if .. if Topol M starts from the Teykovo positional area and the route passes through the shortest distance through Norway and Iceland - 7400 km. to the East coast of the USA .. and then, provided that the carrier SM-3 block IIA (not lower) is located in the area of ​​the Norwegian port of Trondheim .. the SM-3 block IA simply does not have corny energy to intercept .. the result of mathematical modeling proves this (screen applied) .. about the Polish Redzikovo in general, you can simply forget until the appearance of the SM-3 block IIB .. and so for a possible interception, I emphasize again .. for possible interception .. the following prerequisites must be met:
              1. Start from the position district Teykovo Topol M
              2. Shortest ballistic trace 7400 km to US East Coast
              3. The location of the interceptor carrier exactly under the Topol M route
              4. Interceptor version not lower than SM-3 block IIА
              .. there are already too many inexorable conditions, even lowered the probability that the start will be detected not in 0,00 s .. hi

                .. and I will continue .. what if at least one of the conditions is not met? .. for example, everyone knows the range of Topol M is 11 km. .. from the performance characteristics it is known that it has three marching stages plus a stage for breeding warheads, the developers point out that the Topol M ICBM received the possibility of limited maneuver in the active section of the trajectory, which significantly reduces the likelihood of its defeat in the most vulnerable, initial, flight section According to the developers, the active phase of the flight (the start, the area of ​​operation of the main stages, the area of ​​disengagement of combat equipment) of the Topol-M ICBM is reduced by 000-10 times compared to liquid ICBMs, for which it is about 3 minutes.
                Poplar M is supplied with a new set of missile defense breakthrough equipment (KSP PRO). KSP PRO consists of passive and active false targets (LC) and means of distorting the characteristics of the head part. LCs are indistinguishable from warheads in all ranges of electromagnetic radiation (optical, laser, infrared, radar); they allow simulating the characteristics of warheads in almost all breeding attributes on the extra-atmospheric, transitional, and a significant part of the atmospheric section of the descending branch of the flight path of missile warheads; the damaging factors of a nuclear explosion and the radiation of a super-powerful nuclear-pumped laser, etc. For the first time, LCs capable of withstanding ultra-resolution radars were designed. Means of distorting the characteristics of the head part consist of a radio-absorbing (combined with heat-shielding) coating of HF, generators of active radio interference, aerosol sources of infrared radiation, etc. PCB missile defense is designed to significantly increase the time required by a prospective missile defense of a potential adversary to detect warheads among many false targets and interference, thereby significantly reducing the likelihood of intercepting warheads. Well, given the possibility of maneuvering all the Topol steps throughout the flight .. imagine a similar trace (on the screen) .. while the range reserve is another 2500 km. .. so, that it even seems very early to talk about even the possibility of intercepting ICBMs with existing US missile defense systems and the conversation was about Teykovo and Topol M .. they did not even mention Novosibirsk and other ICBMs .. hi

                  You know, I have a manual on 52 pages using the THAAD system. It can also be translated and inserted into koment. In general terms, it will be said how he bypasses all electronic warfare, as he sees LC and other chips. Nothing changes from this.

                  At the moment, the US missile defense is certainly not able to completely overcome the threat. Nevertheless, the truth is that it is not able to shoot down our ICBMs just as much as that it can shoot down all ICBMs.

                "Topol M starts from the positional area of ​​Teikovo and the tracing goes
                along the shortest distance through Norway and Iceland - 7400 km. "////

                That's right. Trajectories through the north, the north pole in general
                not intercepted.
                Americans focused on a simpler and more realistic task:
                interception of single ICBMs fired across the Pacific
                from the Far East to California.
                A battery in Alaska has time to launch several interceptors on such a missile.

                Apparently, until they increase the probability of defeat to an acceptable 70-80%,
                they will not begin missile defense to cover other areas.
                And the marine Aegis is focused on intercepting the infantry brigade.

        Are you too self-confident?

        SM-3 interceptor of the last batch - can intercept ICBMs at the launch site from Europe.
        Not to mention the possibility of placing GBI there

        GBI makes it possible to intercept ICBMs at peaks up to 2000km - with a successful alignment before the separation of warheads.

        After 2020, GBI will be able to intercept multiple warheads at lower heights thanks to MOKV.

        The latest THAAD modifications, according to the manufacturer, can intercept warheads in the last section, including from ICBMs

    I’m sure that the Americans, like ours, are well aware that in the event of a global bad boom, it’s not their missile defense, not our S-400, that will burn everything and burn it all. Well, maybe the cockroaches will stay. And several tens of thousands of people in bunkers, which then still take a break from unsanitary conditions, radiation and the lack of paid medicine :) But nonetheless, the Americans regularly spend big money on their missile defense, and ours create a deeply echeloned defense of Moscow from missiles. Optimism is an integral feature of humanity :)

    A global never existed and does not exist. What we call the global American missile defense is not. There is only the US national missile defense, the positional areas of which are in California and Alaska. There is a Euro-segment PRO or EuroPro. But it is joint with the NATO countries and this includes the American, French, and Italian-French-British segments.
    In order to shoot down an ICBM in the acceleration section, one must have in the firing plane, and, of course, within reach, at least THAAD or Aegis complexes. But this is simply physically impossible to get. so you can forget about the defeat on the accelerating section. And in all other cases, the American system in Europe is capable of intercepting only MRBMs, which are oppressed by Russia. In the region where the base is only Israeli and Iranian.

    Even Block 2B, which is planned after 20 years, will not have speeds sufficient to intercept ICBMs. Only being under the trajectory is there theoretically the possibility of hitting an ICBM, since the energy of this interceptor will be higher than that of previous modifications. In theory, when launching an interceptor from Poland, ICBMs can only hit GBI, but this project ordered a long life back in the middle of the last decade. Just like the THAAD, the speeds are insufficient to intercept ICBMs.
