    Air Force tests hypersonic missiles on B-52

    Air Force tests hypersonic missiles on B-52

    They are also testing them on other platforms.

    The U.S. Air Force successfully conducted a flight test of a hypersonic missile Wednesday at Edwards Air Force Base in California, according to a news release.

    The flight test collected data on drag and vibration impacts on the weapon and the B-52 Stratofortress carrying it. The AGM-183A Air Launched Rapid Response Weapon did not contain explosives and was not released from the aircraft, the Air Force said.



    The service noted that such tests are required for all of its weapons systems during development.



    “We’re using the rapid prototyping authorities provided by Congress to quickly bring hypersonic weapon capabilities to the warfighter,” Will Roper, assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition, technology and logistics, said in a statement. “This type of speed in our acquisition system is essential — it allows us to field capabilities rapidly to compete against the threats we face."

    The United States is working to catch up to adversaries Russia and China on hypersonic weapons technology.


    The missile is scheduled to reach early operational capability by fiscal 2022.....snip~



    Uhm we need to be working on a few things that defeats or neutralizes hypersonic missiles. Not playing catch up to Russia and China.


    Lasers and the RAIL gun and making sure they never fail against a hypersonic missile.

    They are about to deploy lasers on ships for that purpose. In the process of making smaller and lighter lasers for aircraft.

    Yeah I seen that about the Lasers. We will need then in Space. But don't forget.....it will cost. It will take spending money. Plus if a Democrat gets in office. It will cost double if not more. Then require more spending due to the set backs and negligence.

    This is a much better option than a low yield SLBM.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.
