Triple Target Terminator

Recommended Posts

A new program to develop a high-speed, long-range airborne weapon that can engage aircraft, cruise missiles and air defenses is part of the U.S. Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency's $3.25 billion Fiscal 2010 budget request.

 

The Triple Target Terminator (T3) would be carried internally or externally on fighters, bombers and unmanned aircraft, allowing them to switch between air-to-air and air-to-surface capability and increasing the variety of targets engaged on each sortie.

 

Funding a $7 million is sought in Fiscal 2010 to begin the T3 program, which would look at technologies for propulsion, multi-mode seekers, data links, digital guidance and control and advanced warheads.

 

Other new program starts sought in Fiscal 2010 include: Autonomous Aerial Refueling, to demonstrate high-altitude refuelling between unmanned aircraft, using probe- and drogue-equipped Global Hawk UAVs; a Transformer Vehicle (TX), a road-able aircraft with hybrid electric ducted-fan propulsion capable of flying for two hours carrying one to four people; and a Submersible Aircraft, seen as capable of flying and submerging.

 

Another planned new program is Silent Talk, to develop the capability to communicate without speaking by recognizing the neural signals for specific words. "The brain generates word-specific signals prior to sending electrical impulses to the vocal chords," according to Darpa.

 

The plan is to recognize these "intended speech" signals using electroencephalography (EEG) and translate them into words, allowing covert communications. Initially Darpa wants to identify EEG patterns unique to 100 words commonly used by warfighters.

Con tutto il rispetto e la cortesia potresti spiegarmi il senso di quest'ultimo tuo intervento??? <_>

In pratica stiamo parlando di un missile a/a a lungo raggio, con una secondaria capacità di attacco a/s, cioè il sostituto dell'AMRAAM.

 

Una sorta di Meteor americano probabilmente, con motore scam-jet e un seeker molto sofisticato e magari duale (per esempio radar e IR)

non mi sono mai abituato alla mania americana per le sigle. in questo caso invece di chiamarlo semplicemente "missile multimpiego" o qualcosa del genere hanno coniato questo particolarissimo acronimo...

Ho provato a cercare qualche informazione riguardo a questo nuovo missile ma la mia ricerca è stata infruttuosa...mi piacerebbe saperne qualcosa di più e soprattutto quando entrerà in servizio.
