    You don't have too, tactical and strategic ECM systems could defeat a large portion of PGM's before they even approach your airspace. The Russian's already have countless variations of ECM systems in service (probably more than any other country) for countering every known offensive weapon system imaginable.

    For example the Russians already have tactical ECM systems capable of making PGM's explode prematurely because they hit a 'target', which was actually a imaginary false targets. Also capable of making PGM's propulsion system malfunction, and drop out the sky.

    Are Guam Islands an occupied territory by US ?

    What advantage does it give to yanks having control over an island in pacific ? Can they place ABM shields there to shoot down Nuke missiles etc ( they did during north korea issue )? Gives them access to pacific just like china is making its own islands in S.china sea ?

    Guam really isn't an occupied territory since it has been under US jurisdiction for over a century. To describe it differently, nowadays Guam is as American as Crimea is Russian.

    Guam offers the US a way to project its power into the Pacific Ocean. Oftentimes counteracting another major power in the area (e.g. Japan 1930s-1940s or China 1990s-????). A term that can be used to describe Guam's role for the US is an unskinable aircraft carrier: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unsinkable_aircraft_carrier

    Pentagon Launches Submarine-Tracking Unmanned 'Ghost Ships' This Fall


    Too much money to spend on perhaps . The Pentagon has moved one step closer toward its goal of creating an unmanned, autonomous patrol ship. Set to drift in the high seas, the robotic Sea Hunter will silently follow potentially hostile submarines.

    DARPA recently finished a six-week series of tests off the coast of Mississippi which proved a critical aspect of the boat was successful: it didn’t sink. To test the radar and navigation software, engineers sent the ACTUV through a maritime obstacle course which included rocks, shoals, and even other vessels which intentionally behaved unpredictably.

    The ACTUV passed with flying colors, all while sticking to the maritime laws outlined in the Convention on the international regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea. Already, DARPA at least has proof-of-concept, that an autonomous can navigate an ocean shared with more traditionally piloted craft.

    The next step will be testing the ACTUV’s tracking capabilities. Further down the line, engineers will have to put the vessel through scenarios which involve "enemy ships" attempting to block its navigational systems.

    And if all goes according to plan, ACTUVs would prove to be a cost-effective way to monitor ultra-quiet submarines deployed by Russia, China, and Iran.

    US Navy Tests Missile Interceptors in Pacific: Defense Contractor


    Two US missile interceptors were tested against cruise missile targets during the US Navy's Combat Ship Qualification Trials in the Pacific, interceptor designer Raytheon Company announced on Friday.

    Two US missile interceptors were tested against cruise missile targets during the US Navy's Combat Ship Qualification Trials in the Pacific, interceptor designer Raytheon Company announced on Friday.

    "Advanced warning and cueing from another sensor or ship allows the US Navy to take full advantage of SM-6's over-the-horizon capability. The warfighter does not have to wait until the threat is knocking at the door to take it out," Standard Missile-6 senior program director Mike Campisi said in a written statement.

    Targets are destroyed sooner and one ship can defend a larger area, Campisi said.

    During the test, the first interceptor took out a short-range supersonic rocket while the other halted smaller low-altitude, medium range target drone. Interceptors were fired by Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Chancellorsville.

    Raytheon called the missile tests a success.

    SM-6 provides protection against fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles and cruise missiles. According to Raytheon, the interceptors are equipped with their own individualized radar system aimed to detect the movement of its target.

    Raytheon has delivered more than 130 Standard Missile-6 interceptors to the US Navy.

    The interceptors final assembly takes place at Redstone Arsenal Army post in Huntsville, Alabama.

    Invisible No More: US Stealth Subs to Lose Unbeatable Advantage
    dunno


    The US Navy's worst nightmare is about to come true: new technologies will deal a severe blow to the ability of American stealth submarines to vanish beneath the waters without a trace, Professor of Strategy at the Naval War College James Holmes stressed.
    US atomic stealth submarines have long enjoyed their unbeatable advantage to remain undetected beneath the oceans' waters; however, a new technological revolution is likely to nullify this advantage, undermining America's capacity to execute its ambitious foreign policy in distant waters, Professor of Strategy at the Naval War College James Holmes underscored.

    "Unless US forces adapt to and lead the new competition, the era of unrivaled US undersea dominance could draw to a surprisingly abrupt close," Bryan Clark, the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA) analyst and retired US Navy commander, stated as quoted by the professor.




    Almost 60 years ago US stealth submarines had become game-changers in underwater warfare, while the advent of nuclear propulsion allowed this craft to remain beneath the waves for protracted periods of time. No longer could anti-submarine forces rely on radio or radars in order to detect elusive US subs.
    However, a new technological leap is about to upset the US Navy's applecart. Big Data, non-acoustic detection, and fire-control technology will allow hostile antisubmarine (ASW) forces to detect the traces of a US stealth sub, converting this information into tracking and targeting data.


    However, the situation for US subs is not entirely desperate, the expert noted. Mr. Holmes suggested that submarines should now study both passive and active defense paradigms.

    They might act like naval aviation, namely the latest air-force F-22 and F-35 fighter jets, which rely more on "active countermeasures" such as electronic warfare than on stealth. "Naval airmen defeat or fool defenses rather than elude them," the professor elaborated.

    On the other hand, fleets of unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs) may extend the submarine's ability to counter ASW, while new torpedoes and Tomahawk anti-ship missiles "would help redress the imbalance between subs and access deniers."

    Anyway, US stealth subs will no longer be able to disappear from their adversaries' view with impunity, the professor underscored, adding that it is more likely that the underwater theatre will resemble much of the aerial and surface theaters

    Hahahaaha... yeah... the US has the entire worlds oceans bugged and knows where all the subs are... is that why they are spending large amounts of money on these ghost unmanned ships to shadow enemy subs?

    BTW will be funny when a ghost ship is tracking say an old Delta IV SSBN in the middle of winter and the Delta goes under an ice sheet in the arctic...  Twisted Evil

    This is America's new $13 billion warship



    The US Navy is less than a year away from adding the most expensive warship in history to its fleet, the $13 billion USS Gerald Ford.

    The USS Ford, the lead ship of the new Ford-class aircraft carrier series, is expected to join the US Navy by February 2016, according to CNN. Once deployed, the ship will be the largest carrier ever to ply the seas and will feature a number of changes and advancements over the US' current Nimitz-class aircraft carrier.

    Here's a look at this multi billion-dollar beast:

    The USS Gerald Ford is expected to cost upwards of $13 billion by the time it is deployed.

    The Ford, and the accompanying Ford-class carrier fleet, are intended to relieve stress and over-deployment within the US Navy. Currently, the Navy operates 10 carriers but wants an additional vessel to take pressure off of the rest of the fleet.

    The ship will feature a host of changes over the current Nimitz-class carrier. Ford-class carriers will be capable of generating three times more electrical power than the older carrier classes, for example.


    This increased electrical power supply allows the Ford to use the newly designed Electro-Magnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS), which will allow the vessel to launch 25% more aircraft a day than the previous steam-powered launch systems.


    The amount of electricity onboard also makes the Ford-class carriers ideal candidates to field laser and directed-energy weapons in the future, like rail guns and missile interceptors.


    Once launched, the Ford will be the largest warship in the world. It will be 1,092 feet long and displace upwards of 100,000 tons.




    This size will allow the carrier to house about 4,400 staff and personnel while also carrying more than 75 aircraft.


    The aircraft carrier Pre-Commissioning Unit (PCU) Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) gets underway beginning the ship's launch and transit to Newport News Shipyard pier 3 for the final stages of construction and testing.


    But for all the advances within the Ford-class carrier group, some have questioned the wisdom of continuing an astronomically expensive carrier-heavy naval strategy in a time when inter-state warfare is rare and nations like China continue to develop potentially carrier-killing long-range anti-ship cruise missiles.

    HII hands over 12th Virginia submarine to US Navy Rolling Eyes

    Huntington Ingalls Industries' (HII's) Newport News Shipbuilding division has handed over the US Navy's (USN's) 12th Virginia-class nuclear-powered attack submarine (SSN), officials announced on 25 June.

    John Warner (SSN 785) - named after the US senator and former secretary of the navy - was delivered at HII's Newport News, Virginia shipyard. It is the sixth Virginia SSN to be completed by Newport News, which is building the boats in partnership with General Dynamics Electric Boat, under a teaming agreement.

    The USN is acquiring a 30-boat class of Virginia SSNs. Eleven boats are in commission.

    John Warner is the second of eight Block III Virginias that feature a redesigned bow (with a new Large Aperture Bow array) and two 87-inch Virginia payload tubes that each launch six Tomahawk land-attack cruise missiles.

    USN trawls industry for future frigate's long-range missile

    The US Navy (USN) is canvassing industry for technology options to fulfil a requirement to equip its future frigates with an over-the-horizon weapon system to defend the ships against military surface craft and vessels.

    As part of a Request for Information (RfI) released by the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) in mid-June, the US government is seeking information "for design, development, test and evaluation, and manufacture of an over-the-horizon missile system capability to defeat surface threats".

    The system would be fitted on board new frigates to be based upon a modified version of the USN's Littoral Combat Ship (LCS). Current shipbuilding plans indicate that the navy intends to acquire 20 frigates beginning in fiscal year (FY) 2019.

    Beneath the skin: US Navy DDG 51 Flight III guided missile destroyer No

    The US Navy's DDG 51 Flight III guided missile destroyer has now entered the detailed design stage. Richard Scott examines how this new variant, designed to take the new AN/SPY-6(V) Air and Missile Defense Radar to sea, will differ from the current Flight IIA design Beginning procurement in fiscal year (FY) 2016, the US Navy's (USN's) next-generation DDG 51 Flight III guided missile destroyer will, from the outside, resemble its antecedent. Under the skin, however, there will be some significant changes in order that the hull, mechanical and electrical (HM&E) systems, and the
    Aegis combat system, can support a new Air and Missile Defense Radar (AMDR) intended to confer the Flight III ships with an unmatched integrated air and missile defence (IAMD) capability.

    New RAM Block 2 achieves initial operational capability Sad

    RAM Block 2 was subject to DT/OT at the Pacific Missile Range between May 2013 and March 2015 .The RIM-116C Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM) Block 2 ship self-defence missile has achieved initial operational capability (IOC) on board the LPD 17 San Antonio-class assault ship USS Arlington (LPD 24), the US Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) has confirmed.

    An evolutionary development of the RIM-116B RAM Block 1 missile, the new RIM-116C embodies kinematic and sensor upgrades to expand the missile's engagement envelope so as to defeat more manoeuvrable and higher speed anti-ship cruise missiles. RAM Block 2 is a far more advanced system, boasting three times the manoeuvrability of the original Rolling Airframe Missile . affraid

    Don't worry... 

    These are baseless claims and nothing more. The Navy seems to think that just because their missile can intercept a non-maneuverable, subsonic AShM it will be able to intercept every Russian one. 

    The RAM's use a very small fragmentation warhead that would require a direct hit on the AShM to take it down...against a missile that is *faster* and also maneuvering (especially in groups), that is unlikely. 

    Besides we use so few RAM systems it barely makes a difference.

    I guess you're confusing it with  newly tested us navy RIM-116C Block 2 RAM .

    Nope i'm talking about Sea-Ram Block 0 and Block 1 .  RIM-116B Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM) ( block 1 ) has Speed in excess of Mach 2.

    You said none of usa ship uses it . Well The RIM-116 is in service on several American  warships . The missile is currently active aboard Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carriers, Nimitz-class aircraft carriers, Wasp-class amphibious assault ships, Tarawa-class amphibious assault ships, San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock ships, Whidbey Island-class dock landing ship, Harpers Ferry-class dock landing ships, and littoral combat ships (LCS) .

    RAM is better than Phalanx CIWS against anti-ship missiles .

    RAM is better than Phalanx CIWS against anti-ship missiles .

    Phalanx is ineffective against low flying targets... anything below about 20m and it suffers from multipath returns via its radar and can't hit anything... subsonic or supersonic.

    there is a reason Kashtan has thermal and digital optics as well as MMW and CMW radars on the mount... each technology has strengths and weaknesses and together they are the best solution...

    Hard to say... there is a reason why after testing with MA-31s that the Americans want to test with better analogs of heavier Russian weapons.

    A 600kg missile moving at mach 2.5 or so is not the same as a Moskit 4.5 ton missile moving at a similar speed, or an Onyx 2.5 ton missile... It might be like a motor bike hitting a truck on the highway, or it might be like a fly hitting your windscreen on the highway.

    Btw do Russians use sea-rams ?

    Why would they use inferior US missiles?

    Russian and Soviet ships have used the naval equivalent of OSA and TOR and Pantsir in the past.

    For the future they have guided 57mm cannon shells in development for dealing with incoming threats, and they also have a unified service missile called 9M100 which will use IIR guidance in a short range missile for the airforce, army and navy.
