    Winning The Salvo Competition: Rebalancing America’s Air And Missile Defenses

    Over the last fifteen years, the Department of Defense spent more than $24 billion buying a mix of capabilities to defeat guided missile threats to U.S. and partner naval forces and land installations. Despite DoD’s urgency, these investments have not resulted in air and missile defenses with sufficient capacity to counter large salvos of ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and other precision-guided munitions (PGMs) that can now be launched by America’s enemies. This situation is partly the result of DoD’s longstanding emphasis on fielding costly, long-range surface-to-air interceptors to defeat a small salvo of anti-ship cruise missiles or a handful of ballistic missiles launched by rogue states such as Iran and North Korea. It is also because the U.S. military has never fought an enemy who had the capability to strike distant targets with precision. In future conflicts, however, America’s opponents can be expected to employ large numbers of sea-, air-, and ground-launched guided weapons to overwhelm limited defenses now protecting the U.S. military’s forces and bases.

    The Pentagon has ordered construction of new facilities for the US Missile Defense Agency in America and a number of countries around the world, the Department of Defense announced.

    More pork for the US defence companies...

    And the result is that Americans will feel safer, but how will it stop such things being targeted directly... I mean an airship with a powerful radar constantly scanning looking for threats should be a trivial target for a high flying ARM cruise missile with a scramjet motor moving at mach 8 plus... and those balloons wont be looking up...

    Very interesting report from NY Times

    Did American Missile Defense Fail in Saudi Arabia?

    this goes against what Raytheon has been claiming so far

    Hahahaha... in the article itself it mentions that speed is the problem and a faster interceptor is not really a solution... it makes things harder not easier.

    America can't shoot down hypersonic manouvering missiles... just like the Russians and Chinese can't either.

    A hypersonic falling item like a Scud or other ballistic target can be intercepted because its flight path is predictable... for an object flying at hypersonic speeds that is not ballistic and could go anywhere things are much much harder...

    Imagine an incoming Zircon missile moving at mach 8... which is 320m/s x 8 = about 2.5km/s...


    If you detect the target 100km away, you need to calculate its trajectory... its expected flight path... so with computers and three pings from the radar lets say that takes 4 seconds, so the missile is now 90km away, so you launch your missile to intercept and you vector that missile to hit the target... it will take your missile 25 seconds to get to the interception point because it needs to accelerate and climb... so that means the interception point will be at about 30km from your launch platform for the SAM... (the incoming Zircon will cover about 62km in the 25 seconds it takes your missile to get to the interception point... but hang on... unlike a ballistic missile... the Zircon can manouver in 3 dimensions... it can climb or descend and turn left or right... and it can speed up or slow down... in which case the interception point can change in a second and suddenly be several kilometres away from the original interception point.

    The problem is that any SAM launched it heading towards the old interception point and to now turn and head to an new interception point uses up energy... which slows it down... the target is still coming at 2.5km per second and that first missile might not make it to any interception point in time... it is not just a case of getting that interception missile to the same 3 dimensional point in space... it also has to be there at exactly the same time... half a second either way and you miss by over 1km... no amount of HE will be effective with such a miss distance.

    More importantly they will have programmed the missile to manouver to be difficult to hit... it is actively trying to avoid any missiles fired at it, though it has no way of actually detecting anything coming at it... unless they have made the radar antenna in its nose sensitive to ARH missile signals... it wont be able to track them but detection would warn the missile to manouver more... it is scramjet powered so it is still powered so manouvers wont reduce speed very much at all anyway.

    The Granit has titanium armour to protect the warhead from incoming Phalanx rounds... during testing it took two AA-9 missile hits to bring one down and it only moves at Mach 2...

    For intercepting missiles detonating the warhead is your best chance of defeating it... which is really hard if you can't hit it.

    US plans satellite network to track hypersonic weapons of China and Russia

    Basically what this means is that the U.S network of satellites in low earth orbit will provide mesh of sensors to reduce kill chain. And, it will provide alternate network if GPS constellation is disrupted.

    Certainly Chinese missiles can be destroyed.

    Russian missiles can be engaged too for interception, maybe not an exo atmospheric interception but certainly endo atmospheric.

    Hahaha no. The failure rate of thaad and rest is far too high against any kind of Russian ballistic missile (it was already very low against a standard ballistic missile that flies in a ballistic path
    God forbid they try against quasi). Since Topol M, no Russian missile flies in a basic ballistic path.

    You sure sound like someone who has not paid attention at all in recent years here.

    Austin posted the findings years ago. These missile defense systems of US are more or less useless. Hell, Iran proved that. Same with Yemen.

    The planned US satellite network has literally nothing to do with hypersonic missile's interception; since the cold shiver of two years ago, when US's authorities realized suddenly how much it has been left behind in the most cutting edge military technologies (and it has absolutely not seen all....) the Pentagon's officlals have conceived a plan to leverage on residual geo-political influence and changes in the paradigm of military struggle (in particular up to now forbidden solutions) to attempt to counterbalance the technological gap that would be very difficult to bridge within the next two decades.

    The first part of the response plan is already in motion, it envision the abandonement of all the existing international weapon control treaties and agreements, while contemporaneously using coldly the territories and the population of its supposed "allies" (with the agreement only of theirs corrupted ruling elites) as nothing more than sacrificeable shields, with the aim to put theirs existing arsenal of nuclear weapons and strategic defense structures closer to the Federation's borders so to effectively force it to plan sub-strategic attacks against those nations even before continental USA and also expend resources in defensive systems against those forward based US offensive means.

    The second part envision a completely space-based closed engagement cycle of strategic weapons, those low orbit geostationary satellites will provide target discovery and positional update to allow the foreseen paired satellite-based nuclear/conventional strike component ,placed on higher orbit, to attack directly the aimed point. The orbit of those planned satellites would be absolutely unsuitable for effcient tracking of hypersonic missile's motion in the atmosphere.

    Obviously those strategic ideas are nothing short of coldly inhumane and cynical to the edge of the abominable , but the madness and total irresponsibility of those self-proclaimed chosen ones and exceptionalists with theirs grotesquely incompetent elites, as repeteadly proved also in those days, have a very unique understanding of the value of other's lives.....

    All these yanqui "counter-measures" are lame and predictable. The problem for self-anointed, exceptional guiding empire of humanity
    is that none of them have the effectiveness they envision:

    1) Breaking all arms control treaties while accusing Russia of cheating. Lame BS since there are provisions in those treaties to
    reconcile cheating cases. So nullifying a treaty based on this pretext is for premature retarded babies. Russia can dish out
    an epic amount of advanced nuclear warheads and ICBMs and IRBMs. Nothing the yanquis will produce will "out compete" Russian
    nuclear weapons.

    2) Parking nukes in LEO. (Not geostationary since that is a 33,000 km up and in the equatorial plane. Orbit nukes have value only
    in LEO due to the time savings for delivery to target. This "solution" is fanboi masturbation spooge. Russia will instantly react by
    parking its own nukes in LEO. I guess the yanquis are planning on bitching and moaning to the world what an aggressor Russia is
    for deploying space based nukes. The boy who cried wolf comes to mind.

    3) Using low yield nukes. This is a pathetic attempt to keep the war conventional. Nobody is going to force Russia to play any
    game. Russia has already announced that it will consider any nuke, regardless of yield, a nuke and respond with nukes.

    4) Using eastern European retards as meat shields. Russia has already announced that it will go for the jugular in any war. So
    Russia will be nuking Langley and similar from hour zero and will not be traversing some BS trajectory that yanqui retards have
    planned for it. Yanquis will not be safe behind some oceanic moat like they were during WWII. They will be glassed ASAP.
    This is really bad news for yanqui freaks since they routinely yap about conventional war with Russia. Russia will not
    fight on yanqui terms.

    5) Endless yanqui masturbation about "decapitating" first strike. More premature baby drivel for brainless drones to lap up.
    Any attempt at first strike will be identified in seconds and will receive a massive counter-strike. I am sure yanqui self-perceived
    stellar intellects are planning all sorts of ruses like launching one missile or B-2 into Russia and pretending it was an accident
    while launching the first strike attempt when Russia is "distracted". Too bad for yanquis, but every scenario they can game
    is gamed by Russia as well.

    Could you say if there is defense against this

    The counter to American space based nuclear attack systems is to destroy the space based weapons before they can be activated... with is going to flood space with billions of fragments from paint chip to truck sized parts including nuclear warheads...

    Space travel will not be an option till it is at least partially cleared and existing satellites will be rendered useless within months of being bombarded by all that material flung around the place.

    In that case Russia too can send in their troops to a place like Mexico. They can't because they don't have this capability.

    Why do you think Russia couldn't send a contingent of troops to Mexico assuming Mexico welcomes them?

    They sent troops to Syria easily enough... ironically if the US sets up weapons on Russias border and in space, then Russia could easily send a few unlimited flight range cruise missiles and TOPOLs on trucks to Cuba... just to send a message.

    Instead the Kremlin used their political capital to create useless organizations like SCO. There was no need for a SCO when CSTO already exists.

    Why do you think political organisations that don't include the US are a bad thing?

    What has NATO got to do with helping European countries with Covid-19? NATO is a military alliance, defending against the evil enemies you mention.

    The responsibility you mention is the EU's but even then the main, and in most countries total, responsibility is for their national government.

    Much cheaper, easier to deploy and as big a nasty shock for the US would be the sudden appearance of a few mobile Kalibre batteries, with SAMs, on Cuba. Not expensive to do and the Russian military would be fighting to get the 6 months postings there!

    The Americans sometimes forget when they boast about their 'carrier off Europe' that is us, that someone else has a potentially very inconvenient carrier off the US coast, Cuba. Facing the very soft underbelly of US defence, the Gulf.

    At the moment Cuba is one of the countries that Trump, or the people behind him, is trying to increase pressure on. Implementing the latest US foreign policy strategy of 'why talk' when you have a couple of big sticks called the $ and the incredible (Trump favourite word) US military.

    The US is blindly arrogant, the Department of Defence having implemented a change in function after WW2 to offence without bothering the change the name. So they have a virtually defenceless homeland against external enemies. After all no-one was ever going to attack them so they didn't need SAMs. Right?

    Cuba back in the time was good because their medium range ballistic missiles could reach US in 5 minutes and they had no alternatives.

    Now they are getting hypersonic missiles mounted on subs, ships and any plane they have with enough range to hit US coasts safely or any european country from homeland.

    They don't need Cuban bases anymore. For intel' it would be nice or to use their ports for their ships but certainly not to deploy nuks.

    Goofball sandwich, you like to pretend Cuba isn't 103 miles away from mainland U.S., you also love to believe that Nudol's parked in Havana won't permanently change your pseudo-strategic calculus, it's range covers the whole east coast of the US, that's why Stumpy-Trumpy's howler monkey cronies are crying their eyes out demanding for Nudol's program to be cancelled!Razz  Troops on the border of Russia will be obliterated with tactical nuke equipped MLRS, let alone Hypersonic weapons......your WW2 era understanding of conflict falls flat on it's ass when you don't even realize their SHORAD structure (let alone IAD) in Eastern Europe is absolutely pitiful, even Aegis Ashore is stationary and lacks any form of mobility, which further exacerbates the fact that the European allies are nothing more than meat-shields.Embarassed You still haven't disproven the fact that useless NATO was utterly helpless to help it's allies during the current Covid-19 crisis. Do what you can to help you sleep easier at night, and don't forget to change your soiled adult diapers before your start to chafe! Razz

    As I said above, it wasn't useless/helpless, just not its job/responsibility.
