Checked his business card again , it says Managing Director .
Ok, at least the good repute and honour of Israeli scientific institutions of the sector are safe.
When it comes to NLOS-BSMs like the Iskander-E, BP-12A or B-611M, what matters more is not the hittile-probably of the interceptor missile’s kill vehicle, but the ability to track such NLOS-BSMs
That, Sujoy is simply and plainly not true. Detection and Tracking of a similar ballistic missile is the last problem afflicting an Air Defence structure tasked to neutralize a similar menace
; what matter ,instead, literally several hundreds of times more
is the average closing speed
involved at the computed interception point (and also ,of course, the cycle and intensity of the velocity variations of the re-entry element),the G-limits of both offensive and intercepting elements
(...i image that you are perfectly aware that intercepting element must pull multiple times the G pull of the manoeuvring re-entry vehicle
in order to have a chance to intercept it) and the responsiveness of aerodynamic surfaces/actuators
to trajectory's variations to reduce in-flight times of redirection to a new interception point.Even very small variations in those factors generate vastly disproportionate effects
in the related interception sequence and final Pk of the SAM interceptors .The failure to comply with requirements
of even only one of those variables and your chances of a successful interception become instantly near to zero
, you could at this point put in the air the interceptor missiles of three four AD regiments without get one chance on thousands to intercept one incoming missile !!!
Is just for those reasons that Iskander is stimed ,at today, completely not-interceptable during its manoeuvring re-entry phase
and its also the reason for which the menace of its deployment in Kalingrad against the NATO ABM elements in East Europe ,by part of Russian authorities ,is used as an "exchange coin" in the diplomatic negotiation.
It is not a casualness that ALL PROJECTS
in work today around the world and aimed at realize ,in future, an interceptor capable to neutralize Iskander-type BM ,foresee its interception in the small time window of its re-allignment phase ,before the beginning of its manoeuvring phase ,where it is regarded as effectively invulnerable .
That, of course, has literally NOTHING TO DO with detection/tracking of the missile.
(and , for clarity, what i have cited in the prevoius post rofere to a future project aimed at interception of Iskander-class BM involving the, by far ,most sophisticated, advanced and capable western-made SAM system
now present on the international scene).
they will have highly restricted manoeuvrability due to their depressed flight trajectories
If this Managing Director was in an external stand ,please suggest to it to procure, for the next time, a good hat or an internal stand....to much sun can be very dangerous for some people.
Let me guess, this authentic genius has suggested to employ Barak-8-LR.....Barak-8-LR
!!! (yes exactly the same SAM that is designed to intercept aircraft, cruise missiles, UAV, helicopters etc.)....to intercept at long range and 45-50 km of altitude
a random-speed variating Mach-7 class target ; a task today outside the capabilities of purposely designed anti-ballistic missiles
such as PAC-3 ,THAAD and SM-3 [/b] and planned in future
-2020-2022- for a purposely modified Aster-30
This guy is the true "Col. Fornof" of the air defense sector
