Future means of dealing with hypersonic weapons can be fully automated, will receive the steering engines as spacecraft. Described a new type of weapon a Russian expert and chief editor of the magazine “Arsenal Fatherland” Victor murakhovski in an interview with RIA Novosti.
According to him, the speed of hypersonic weapons is so great that people simply do not have time nor to digest such huge amounts of information or to make a decision. So everything must be in automatic mode.
The expert said that according to the same scheme already operates the Russian missile defense system. However, it is able to deal only with the ballistic purposes, which also fly at hypersonic, but not maneuvering. He expressed confidence that the creation of anti-missile systems to counter hypersonic strike vehicles will require a large amount of scientific and technical work.
Murakhovski believes that will rise the issue of creating a guidance system that can operate at ultrahigh speeds. In addition, for the creation of such missiles will require new materials, as none of the existing rockets just will not withstand congestion when maneuvering at hypersonic. You will also need a new elementary base, he said.
Earlier the President of Russia Vladimir Putin spoke about the imminent appearance of the country has a new weapon, designed to counter hypersonic weapons. While currently, according to the President, no one in the world able to withstand hypersonic weapons.
