A rewrite of the Pentagon’s acquisition rulebook is allowing the Air Force’s AGM-183A Air-launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) to progress five years faster than it would have under previous procedures, the service’s top uniformed acquisition officer said Dec. 3. The missile will achieve operational capability before the end of 2022, he said.

“If we had planned this as a traditional program, it would have taken an additional five years,” Lt. Gen. Duke Z. Richardson, military deputy to Air Force service acquisition executive Will Roper, said in a National Defense Industrial Association online program on acquisition reform. The ARRW “started in May of ’18,” and, although it has experienced “some hiccups,” it will achieve an early operational capability “by the fourth quarter of ’22,” he said, with “a residual capability once that’s done.”

The ARRW is the Air Force’s “hallmark rapid prototyping program,” he said.

o_Oo_Oo_O

I am so afraid !!

:pleasantry::pleasantry::pleasantry:

But then China tested and tested her hypersonic missiles 6 to 7 years ago and got those operational and ready 2-3 years ago and only revealed that in October of last year.

Murica hoping China sitting on her hands and do nothing more the next 2 to 3 years and no longer progress even further? While Murica getting her hypersonics in 2 to 3 years time?

And in meantime, covid19 exploding even more and more in Murica under that fiascoship headed by Dotard and his Dr. Scott Atlas special adviser to President Donald Trump on the coronavirus. Only a Dotard will put a neuroradiologist who know nothing of virus as his covid special advisor.

And Stella Immanuel, Trump's New Favorite COVID Doc.



Murica got what they voted for.
No more, no less.



Then hope long long.:big_boss: 🤞🤞

The US demonstrated a 4,000km, Mach 17 HGV, with accuracy of 6in in March. In other words, they could send that HGV right through your face. In terms of hypersonic technology, China is behind the US. China has a “good enough” hypersonic capability, while the US has an eye watering one.
