In the United States preparing a council for Russian hypersonic missiles


The United States intends to solve the "sore" problem of the presence of hypersonic weapons in Russia and China with the help of the latest reconnaissance satellites and interceptors, which can neutralize a long-range hypersonic target flying in the atmosphere. On the eve of the US Space Development Agency (part of the "newly minted" Space Forces) published a document containing preliminary requirements for such vehicles.


To create a system for counteracting hypersonic weapons, first of all, a full radar coverage is required. This was announced in 2018 by Deputy Secretary of Defense Michael Griffin. At the same time, the United States does not have long-range radar stations, and existing reconnaissance satellites are not able to detect and even more so accompany hypersonic objects flying in the atmosphere.

Thus, it was decided to include new reconnaissance satellites in a promising defense system, the development contract of which is planned to be concluded with one of the American companies until May 21. The first batch of such vehicles, consisting of 8 units, can be launched into orbit in the fall of 2021. The new satellites will be equipped with infrared detection systems and will be able to exchange information with other satellites of the mesh satellite network. Deployment of the latter is also planned to begin at the end of next year.

It is worth noting that in addition to detection tools, a promising system will require interceptors that can hit a hypersonic target in its cruising low-maneuverable flight section. A tender for the development of prototypes of interception systems under the name Hypersonic Defense Regional Glide Phase Weapons System was announced in February this year. The program involves the creation of the interceptor and a control system for this unit.

    Well, yes, they have already built missile defense, now they will build HyperPro. Interesting, enough money)))

    So, we also need to find a council for all these American satellites, not we all started it. But we cannot remain indifferent observers of how America stuffs the near-Earth space with its military spacecraft. We need to create a worthy and effective response that can guarantee to neutralize the threat to our missiles and satellites.

      The US Federal Reserve (Atlanta branch) issued an official forecast, which reports:

      - In the second quarter, 34.9% of US GDP will be annihilated - more than a third!
      - in the worst year of the Great Depression, 13.1% of the US GDP was destroyed, and this is for the whole year, that is, the collapse then took place in a much milder mode

      PS That's the whole board.

    Well done, cartoons about hypersound. Helped the US military-industrial complex to knock some money out of an arms race.

    In fact, some of the observation stations already exist.

    When at the end of 18th, a meteor at 6 Hiroshim cawed off the coast of our Far East, only Americans and Yapis tracked and took a picture of him. I don’t remember now, the hypersound of the meteor was Putin's (1st space), or Trumpovsky (2nd space).

      You have mixed Trump hypersound and hyperpuk ... Here it is that he was tracked by characteristic signs.

        Hyperpuk, hypersound are one and the same.
        Trump somehow managed to call a rocket cool.

      .. Well done, cartoons about hypersound. Helped ..

      Yes, cartoons even help to drive a bridge across the Crimea.

      .. When, at the end of 18th, a meteor at 6 Hiroshim gasped off the coast of our Far East, only Americans and Yapis tracked him and took a picture ..

      Yes, yes .. tsunamis can’t track something, where are they to the meteors).
      And the Americans - these yes ... they can. They always walk with cameras. To capture aircraft crashes into towers. And by the way, why didn’t they shoot the Pentagon? Ay yay yay .. the script, apparently, was invented along the way.)

        A bridge is a bridge, cartoons are cartoons, and together they rarely converge.

        They don’t track the tsunami, it itself comes ... (This is not the Ministry of Emergencies with their endless newsletters)

        And the Americans ... They filmed for sure, but they didn’t post it to you, they specially classified it.
        So that the foreign people would suffer, do not sleep at night - the rocket wailed, the plane or plastid piled ....

          Here you just noticed ... - "piled".
          And what is interesting, because it is obvious that all this was orchestrated by the American special services - and there is silence in the information field. There are no shouts, accusations, etc. And all because there is a "free" press.

            19 years have passed. What to yell. At one time they wrote and wrote ..
            And about the exposures ... there are plenty of ufological newspapers, and Mexico is at hand, with its keen anti-American gaze ....

    I suggest Hollywood to urgently release a new film, as they broke these insidious Russians with their hypersound.
    And if they don’t worry, release another film, or even two ...
