The Powder Keg ....

 

America is losing its technological edge thanks to repeated rounds of defense cuts, said senior House leaders this week.

The joint statement—issued by House Armed Services Committee Chairman Rep. Buck McKeon [R-Calif.], HASC seapower and projection forces panel chairman Rep. Randy Forbes [R-Va.], and HASC strategic forces panel chair Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.)—follows a revelation by the Washington Free Beacon that China has completed the first flight test of a new hypersonic glide vehicle, which could be used to deliver warheads past missile defenses at hypersonic speeds.

The test of the weapon, dubbed the WU-14, took place on Jan. 9, and officials state the space vehicle is constructed to be deployed on top of a Chinese intercontinental ballistic missile, then to glide and maneuver at hypersonic speeds (over Mach 5 or greater than 6,000 miles per hour) to its target.

The Pentagon has confirmed the test occurred, but did not offer comment on the specifics, according to the Free Beacon.

“The Chinese and other competitor nations [are pushing toward] military parity with the United States; in some cases, as in this one, they appear to be leaping ahead of us,” states the Jan. 13 joint statement.

They added, "The Asia Pacific is fast becoming a powder keg. Allowing nations that do not share our respect for free and open avenues of commerce to gain a strategic advantage over the United States and her allies only brings us closer to lighting the fuse."

Avevo avuto la notizia ieri mattina, ma tutte le fonti facevano capo solo al quotidiano di washington.

Ieri a cena ne hanno parlato anche i media locali e oggi anche il South China Morning Post.

hina has flight-tested a hypersonic missile delivery vehicle capable of penetrating any existing defence system with nuclear warheads, according to the Pentagon.

nsdfglkjdsflkgjfd25_copy.gif?itok=XnxHS6The hypersonic glide vehicle (HGV), dubbed the "Wu-14" by the United States, was detected flying at 10 times the speed of sound during a test flight over China on Thursday, a Pentagon official told the Washington Free Beacon, an online newspaper. A Pentagon spokesman later confirmed the report but declined to provide details.

"We routinely monitor foreign defence activities and we are aware of the test," Marine Corpsc spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Jeffery Pool told the Beacon.

Chinese military experts yesterday hailed the test as a breakthrough.

It makes China the second country after the US to have successfully tested a hypersonic delivery vehicle capable of carrying nuclear warheads at a speed above Mach 10.

Such a weapon has long been seen as a game-changer by security experts as it can hit a target before any of the existing missile defence systems can react. Once deployed, it could significantly boost China's strategic and conventional missile force.

It is designed to be carried by an intercontinental ballistic missile. Once it reaches an undisclosed sub-orbital altitude, the vehicle jettisons from the rocket and nose-dives towards the target at a speed of Mach 10, or 12,359km/h.

Russia and India are also known to be working on such a weapon.

In 2010, the US tested the Lockheed HTV-2 - a similar delivery vehicle capable of reaching speeds of up to Mach 20.

Last week's test shows that China has managed to close the gaps with the US. Chinese scientists said China had put "enormous investment" into the project.

More than 100 teams from leading research institutes and universities have been involved in the project.

Purpose-built facilities test various parts of the weapons system. The Chinese Academy of Sciences, for instance, has recently built one of the world's largest and most advanced hypersonic wind tunnels to simulate flights at up to Mach 15 at the Institute of Mechanics in Beijing.

Professor Wang Yuhui , a researcher on hypersonic flight control at Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, said she was not surprised by the test last week because China was technologically ready.

The objective of hypersonic vehicles was to outmanoeuvre and penetrate a missile defence system, she said.

"With a speed of Mach 10 or higher, it cannot be caught or tracked because defence systems don't have enough time to respond," Wang said.

She said the US remained the indisputable leader in the field but no country was ready to deploy the first practical hypersonic missile as many technological challenges remained. One outstanding issue was how to achieve precise flight control at such high speeds.

Scientists are also trying to develop a better "super material" that can withstand the high temperatures during hypersonic flights.

"I am sure many tests will be carried out after last week's flight to solve the problems," Wang said. "It's just the beginning."

Li Jie , a Beijing-based naval expert, said hypersonic weapons were of strategic and tactical importance to China.

"Many technical issues have not been solved and no country has made it ready for use in the field," he said.

"But it is a challenge we must surmount, and we are throwing everything we have at it."

Ni Lexiong , a Shanghai-based naval expert, said China might still need some time to catch up with the US but the day could arrive sooner than many expect. "Missiles will play a dominant role in warfare and China has a very clear idea of what is important."

 

Si sapeva che erano dietro a questa ricerca da un po, ma non pensavo ci sarebbe stato un lancio ad inizio 2014.

E "Flight International" conferma che la Cina ha confermato ....

 

China confirms test of “hypersonic missile delivery vehicle” ....

China has confirmed the successful test flight of a “hypersonic missile delivery vehicle,” but stresses that the system is not designed specifically to penetrate US missile defences.
The confirmation of the test was published in state news organ China Daily, and on the ministry of defence’s web site.

Sinceramente viene da sorridere!

Ma di cosa diavolo stiamo parlando se non di un normale missile balistico intercontinentale che rilascia delle MIRV ??

 

Il missile ipersonico se vogliamo far riferimento ai progetti DARPA puo essere un Waverider che viene lanciato da un aereo (bombardiere) e accellera fino a mach 5 o dintorni.

 

O puo essere come il progetto dell' Us Army AHW con profilo non balistico glide-trajectory.

 

I cinesi che avrebbero lanciato?

Che non sono MIRV ma al limite MARV visto che si parla di manovra.... Ma leggere prima di commentare, mai?

Qui c'è una puntata di una programma militare che conferma il successo del lancio.

In pratica, quello che i cinesi hanno testato è un glider tipo HTV (Hypersonic Tecnology Vehicle) della Darpa
Il commentatore ha detto che il glider è stato in grado di rallentare (?) e controllare la sua velocità, che è manovrabile e ha impattato l'obiettivo con successo.

Il programma parla anche degli insuccessi americani con il HTV-2. (perso il contatto con il velivolo)
Dice che loro sono riusciti dove altri hanno fallito.

Da AW&ST ....

Come ho postato giorni fa, ma il post e' stato cassato, si parla probabilmente di MARV.

Quella era un'immagine a corredo di un articolo apparso sull'ultimo numero di AW&ST .... che poi corrisponda alla realtà .... proprio non saprei .... come non è detto sia veritiera quella postata da te .... troppo somigliante al Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle 2 (HTV-2) della DARPA....

.... e, guarda caso, mi pare che i Cinesi, per illustrare l'avvenimento, stiano utilizzando immagini originali di provenienza DARPA .... :scratch:
