Raytheon moves forward with Multi-Object Kill Vehicle program

By Ryan Maass | Nov. 20, 2015

TUCSON, Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Raytheon completed the first Program Planning Review with the U.S. Missile Defense Agency for its Multi-Object Kill Vehicle concept, advancing the program.

The completion marks a milestone for the program's Concept Development Phase, designed to ensure the company is meeting the Missile Defense Agency's expectations. The Concept Review takes place in December.

Raytheon is developing four kill vehicle programs as a response to emerging long-range ballistic missile threats, including the Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle, the Redsigned Kill Vehicle, and the Multi-Object Kill Vehicle, or MOKV. The MOKV contract was awarded to Raytheon in August, and it will be designed to engage and destroy multiple objects at a time in space by using an advanced sensor, guidance, propulsion and communication technologies.

"Emerging threats demand a new engagement paradigm -- one the Raytheon team is able to fully support with our depth of experience and breadth of capability," vice president of Advanced Missile Systems Dr. Thomas Bussing said in a statement.

The contract is valued at approximately $9.7 million. Production on the MOKV's concept is taking place at Raytheon's Advanced Missile System's product line. The company's kill vehicles are manufactured at the company's Space Factory.

Ballistic Missile Defense System Demonstrates Layered Defense While Conducting Multiple Engagements in Operational Test
15-NEWS-0008
November 1, 2015

The U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA), Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Operational Test Agency, Joint Functional Component Command for Integrated Missile Defense, U.S. European Command, and U.S. Pacific Command conducted a complex operational flight test of the BMDS demonstrating a layered defense architecture.

The test, designated Flight Test Operational-02 Event 2a, was conducted in the vicinity of Wake Island and surrounding areas of the western Pacific Ocean. The test stressed the ability of Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) and Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) weapon systems to negate two ballistic missile threats while Aegis BMD simultaneously conducted an anti-air warfare operation.

This was a highly complex operational test of the BMDS which required all elements to work together in an integrated layered defense design to detect, track, discriminate, engage, and negate the ballistic missile threats.

BMDS assets included: a THAAD battery consisting of a THAAD Fire Control and Communications (TFCC) unit, THAAD launcher, and an Army Navy/Transportable Radar Surveillance and Control Model 2 (AN/TPY-2) radar in terminal mode; a second AN/TPY-2 radar in forward-based mode; Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications (C2BMC); and the USS JOHN PAUL JONES (DDG-53) Aegis BMD-configured ship with its onboard AN/SPY-1 radar.

At approximately 11:05 pm EDT (October 31), a Short Range Air Launch Target (SRALT) was launched by a U.S. Air Force C-17 aircraft southeast of Wake Island. The THAAD AN/TPY-2 radar in terminal mode detected the target and relayed track information to the TFCC to develop a fire control solution and provide track information for use by other defending BMDS assets. The THAAD weapon system developed a fire control solution, launched a THAAD interceptor missile, and successfully intercepted the SRALT target.

While THAAD was engaging the SRALT, an extended Medium Range Ballistic Missile (eMRBM) was air-launched by another Air Force C-17. The eMRBM target was detected and tracked by multiple BMDS assets including the AN/TPY-2 in forward-based mode, and the USS JOHN PAUL JONES with its AN/SPY-1 radar. Shortly after eMRBM launch, a BQM-74E air-breathing target was also launched and tracked by the USS JOHN PAUL JONES.

As a demonstration of layered defense capabilities, both Aegis BMD and THAAD launched interceptors to engage the eMRBM. The USS JOHN PAUL JONES successfully launched a Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) Block IB Threat Upgrade guided missile, but an anomaly early in its flight prevented a midcourse intercept. However, the THAAD interceptor, in its terminal defense role, acquired and successfully intercepted the target. Concurrently, Aegis BMD successfully engaged the BQM-74E air-breathing target with a Standard Missile-2 Block IIIA guided missile. A failure review is currently underway to investigate the SM-3 anomaly.

Several other missile defense assets observed the launches and gathered data for future analysis. Participants included the Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communications (C2BMC) Experimental Lab (X-Lab), C2BMC Enterprise Sensors Laboratory (ESL), and the Space Tracking and Surveillance System-Demonstrators (STSS-D).

The MDA will use test results to improve and enhance the BMDS.

Patriot takes out two ballistic missiles in latest test

By Ryan Maass | Nov. 19, 2015

WASHINGTON, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army completed its first in a series of tests on the Raytheon-built Patriot Integrated Air and Missile Defense system.

The flight test, which saw the missile defense system take out two ballistic missiles, followed several upgrades known as Post-Deployment Build 8 (PDB-8), which enhanced the system's ability to intercept threats and better differentiate between friendly and enemy aircraft.

The PDB-8 upgrades were funded in part by the 13-nation Patriot partnership, a coalition of governments agreeing to cooperate on funding, operational knowledge, demonstrations, and other activities to support the missile system's development.

"Because countries share in the investment of upgrades, Patriot is able to stay ahead of the continually evolving and improving threats we are seeing in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Asia," said Ralph Acaba, Raytheon vice president of Integrated Air and Missile Defense in a statement.

The Patriot Integrated Air and Missile Defense system is a long-range, high altitude system designed to counter tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, and other airborne threats from a ground-based platform.

The system features active electronically-scanned array radar technology providing 360 degrees of coverage, a Common Command-and-Control system allowing for operation with partner and allied systems, and the abilty to fire multiple missile types simultaneously, enabling the system to counter a wide variety of threats.

13-nation partnership-funded upgrade to address near-term emerging threats

WHITE SANDS MISSILE RANGE, N.M., Nov. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Army successfully completed the first in a series of flight tests for the latest upgrades to the Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN)-made Patriot Integrated Air and Missile Defense system.

289021.jpg

The upgrades, collectively known as Post-Deployment Build 8 (PDB-8), improve Patriot's ability to destroy all categories of threats, differentiate between friendly and enemy aircraft, and make Patriot easier for soldiers to operate. PDB-8 is slated for fielding in the near future. Much of PDB-8's development was funded by the 13-nation Patriot partnership, which will have the opportunity to incorporate PDB-8 into their Patriot inventory after U.S. Army testing and Materiel Release.

"Because countries share in the investment of upgrades, Patriot is able to stay ahead of the continually evolving and improving threats we are seeing in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Asia," said Ralph Acaba, Raytheon vice president of Integrated Air and Missile Defense. "Like all other Patriot upgrades, PDB-8 can be retro-fitted into Patriot fire units around the world, and builds on the lessons learned from Patriot's more than 190 combat employments, 700 flight tests and 2,500-plus ground tests."

During the flight test, operators used a PDB-8 configured Patriot battery to detect and track a ballistic missile target. The operators then successfully engaged the target with two different kinds of missiles -- a PAC-3 and a GEM-T. A short while later, operators repeated the process, this time successfully engaging a second ballistic missile target with two GEM-T missiles.

PDB-8 is currently undergoing U.S. government testing and evaluation. Additional flight- and ground- testing against a variety of targets will be conducted before PDB-8 is phased into the Patriot inventory.

PDB-8 also represents the first U.S. Army fielding of two new major pieces of hardware:

  • Modern Man Station (MMS), a user interface with color LCD displays, touch screens and soft keys.
  • Radar Digital Processor (RDP), a ruggedized commercial off-the-shelf processor. RDP increase Patriot's already high reliability by 40 percent. RDP also costs less to maintain and operate because it has fewer parts. And, RDP enables future capabilities through software upgrades.
Although a number of Patriot partner nations have already fielded MMS and RDP, PDB-8 takes full advantages of the hardware upgrades. As a result, the U.S. Army and other PDB-8 users will have the following features and benefits in their Patriot systems:

  • Enhanced capability against a variety of threats.
  • An improved Identification Friend or Foe capability
  • Improved radar search capability.
  • Improved target detection and identification
  • A redesigned Fire Solution Computer, which enables Patriot to take advantage of the PAC-3 MSE missile capabilities.
  • An Enhanced Weapons Control Computer which provides up to 50 percent additional processing power for software enhancements to address evolving threats.

Contractors Complete Key Multi-Object Kill Vehicle Program Review
By Jen Judson
November 24, 2015

WASHINGTON — The three companies designing a kill vehicle that can take out multiple warheads with a single interceptor have completed their first program planning reviews with the Missile Defense Agency, marking a critical step toward determining key elements of the designs.

Raytheon, Lockheed Martin and Boeing were all awarded $9.7 million contracts in August 2015 by the Missile Defense Agency to work on designs.

"The milestone is a critical part of the concept development phase," Raytheon wrote in a statement, adding it is "aligned with the MDA's expectations and on track for a concept review in December."

Raytheon is using its expertise across four kill vehicle programs including the Ground-based Midcourse Defense System's Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle.

The EKV, a critical component of the interceptors of the GMD system designed to protect the homeland from possible ballistic missile threats from North Korea and Iran, struggled in tests. The MDA is redesigning the already fielded system to build in more reliability and capability.

Raytheon said its design will be capable of destroying several objects by using "advanced sensor, divert and attitude control and communications technologies."

The company also said that between its Standard Missile-3 and EKV programs, it has achieved more than 30 intercepts in space "far more than any other company."

Lockheed Martin also completed its program planning review in October, according to company spokeswoman Lynn Fisher.

The company is developing a system concept for destroying more than one warhead with a single interceptor, she said, adding: "This is an important step in changing the cost curve for missile defense engagement."

In August, Doug Graham, Lockheed's vice president of missile systems and advanced programs within the company's Space Systems division, said: "Our talented engineers will use out-of-the-box Silicon Valley thinking to create an ultrahigh performance system that will operate outside of the atmosphere while traveling thousands of miles per hour."

Lockheed is building its design also based on its experience developing the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System and the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missiles. According to a statement, the hit-to-kill interceptors have achieved more than 100 successful intercepts in combat and flight testing since 1984 — "more than any other company."

Boeing has also completed its review, company spokeswoman Cheryl Sampson said.

Standard Missile Completes First Intercept Test from Aegis Ashore Test Site
15-NEWS-0011
December 10, 2015
The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) and the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) Operational Test Agency, in conjunction with U.S. Pacific Command, U.S. European Command, and Joint Functional Component Command for Integrated Missile Defense, successfully conducted the first intercept flight test today (December 9, Hawaii Standard Time) of a land-based Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) weapon system and Standard Missile (SM)-3 Block IB Threat Upgrade guided missile, launched from the Aegis Ashore Missile Defense Test Complex at the Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF), Kauai, Hawaii.

During the test, a target representing a medium-range ballistic missile was air-launched from a U.S. Air Force C-17 aircraft over the broad ocean area southwest of Hawaii. An AN/TPY-2 radar in Forward Based Mode, located at PMRF, detected the target and relayed target track information to the Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communication (C2BMC) system. The Aegis Weapon System at the Aegis Ashore site received track data from C2BMC and used its component AN/SPY-1 radar to acquire, track, and develop a fire control solution to engage the target. The Aegis Weapon System then launched the SM-3 Block IB Threat Upgrade guided missile from its Vertical Launch System. The SM-3’s kinetic warhead acquired the target reentry vehicle, diverted into its path, and destroyed the target using the kinetic force of a direct impact.

The primary purpose of the test, designated Flight Test Operational-02 Event 1a, was to assess the operational effectiveness of the Aegis Ashore capability as part of a larger BMDS architecture. Aegis Ashore uses a nearly identical configuration of the Vertical Launch System, fire control system, and SPY-1 radar currently in use aboard Aegis BMD cruisers and destroyers deployed at sea around the world.

Vice Admiral James D. Syring, MDA Director, said, "Today's test demonstrated that the same Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense capability that has been fielded at sea and operational for years, will soon be operational ashore as part of the European Phased Adaptive Approach (EPAA) Phase 2 capability in Romania. I am very proud of the tremendous effort by the entire government/industry team in executing this vitally important mission for our Nation and our allies."

This flight test demonstrates Aegis Ashore capability as an important component of Phase 2 of the EPAA, of which MDA plans to announce a technical capability declaration by the end of this month.

The MDA and the U.S. Navy cooperatively manage the Aegis BMD program.

@Indus Falcon @Blue Marlin @Zarvan @Manticore How about opening a thread on anti-missile systems from around the world?

The reason I am asking for this is because today we were looking at laser guided rockets (not to be confused with missiles) launched from land, simply to overwhelm anti missile systems.

Best Regards
great idea. you get a move on then and open this thread.
when you mean anti missile dont you mean an anti balistic missile?

Ground-based Midcourse Defense System Conducts Successful Flight Test
16-NEWS-0002
January 28, 2016

The U.S. Missile Defense Agency, in cooperation with the U.S. Air Force 30th Space Wing, the Joint Functional Component Command for Integrated Missile Defense, and U.S. Northern Command, today conducted a non-intercept flight test of the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) element of the nation’s Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). A long-range ground-based interceptor was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., successfully evaluating performance of alternate divert thrusters for the system’s Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle.

During the test, a target representing an intermediate-range ballistic missile was air-launched from a U.S. Air Force C-17 aircraft over the broad ocean area west of Hawaii. An Army Navy/Transportable Radar Surveillance and Control Model 2 (AN/TPY-2) radar in Forward Based Mode, located at the Pacific Missile Range Facility, Kauai, Hawaii, detected the target and relayed target track information to the Command, Control, Battle Management, and Communication system. The Sea-Based X-band radar, positioned in the broad ocean area northeast of Hawaii, also acquired and tracked the target. The GMD system received track data and developed a fire control solution to engage the target. The test also included a demonstration of technology to discriminate countermeasures carried by the target missile.

A three-stage Ground-Based Interceptor was launched from Vandenberg AFB, performed fly-out, and released a Capability Enhancement-II Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle. The kill vehicle performed scripted maneuvers to demonstrate performance of alternate divert thrusters. Upon entering terminal phase, the kill vehicle initiated a planned burn sequence to evaluate the alternate divert thrusters until fuel was exhausted, intentionally precluding an intercept.

Program officials will evaluate system performance based upon telemetry and other data obtained during the test. Engineering data from this test will be used to increase confidence for future GMD intercept missions. This test is designated Ground-based Midcourse Defense Controlled Test Vehicle-02+.

The GMD element of the integrated BMDS provides Combatant Commanders the capability to engage and destroy limited intermediate- and long-range ballistic missile threats in space to protect the United States.

As we know Polish Armed Forces conducted a large-scale military training exercise Anakonda involving 24 NATO and partner countries. For more than 10 days, 31,000 troops, backed by large numbers of vehicles, aircraft and ships trained together. The aim was to exercise and test the interoperability of the Polish Armed Forces with other participating nations. Another large-scale NATO exercise Saber Strike 2016 have begun in the Baltic States, which are aimed at improving interaction between member states in a wide range on military operations. 10,000 soldiers from 13 member states and partner countries are participating in the exercise. The exercises take place from May 27 th to June 22th.

At the same time, their neighboring countries do not sleep either. The last six months are characterized by very intensive operational and combat training in Belarus.

While NATO flexes its military muscle in Poland and in the Baltic States Belarus conducted command and staff war game with the 6th and 11th Guards mechanized brigades led by the Commander of the Western Operational Command from June 7 th to 9 th at the Gozhsky test site. The aim of this exercise was to enhance the level of practical skills in command and control of military units during combat operations with the use of innovative technologies.

The more so the units of Belarus Air Force and Air Defence Forces will participate in the exercise led by Russian Western Military District from June 14 th to 16 th.

In the course of the exercise a missile and aviation strike of imaginary enemy will be repelled. Air Force and Air Defence troops of Russia and Belarus will practice elimination of different types of targets imitating cruise and ballistic missiles, combat and reconnaissance UAVs as well as aviation units of imaginary enemy during day and night time.

Also there were some information about state tests of Belarusian Polonaise multiple launch rocket system: «Final acts and protocols of the state testing of Polonaise multiple launch rocket system were presented to Sergey Gurulev, the Chairman of State Military Industrial Committee of Belarus on June, 10,» - said the Goskomvoenprom's spokesman Vladimir Lavrenyuk.

As he noted, «another important step of the Polonaise systems transfering to the Armed Forces of Belarus has been completed.»

These tests were successfully completed on May, 30. More than 20 organizations of the national defense industry worked on the development of Polonaise MLRS.

This multiple launch rocket system with 200 km fire range has been already put into service of the Belarusian army.

One MLRS firing battery will join the 336th Reactive Artillery Brigade (Osipovichi,Mogilevregion).

It's neccessary to add, that Representatives of the Ministry of Interior, the State Border Committee, the State Security Committee and the Ministry of Emergency Situations take part in the command and staff exercises with the territorial defense forces of the Grodno region (Belarus).

More than 2,000 servicemen and over 70 units of equipment will take part in the joint drills in Grodno region of Belarus.

According to the press service, military units of the Western Operational Command, the Air Force and Air Defense Forces, the Special Operations Forces, as well as the representatives of almost all law enforcement agencies, including the Interior Ministry, the State Border Committee, the State Security Committee and the Emergency Situations Ministry take part in the drills.

Sergei Dudko, the head of department of the territorial defense forces –deputy chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus:

«According to the Defense Ministry's training plan for 2015/2016, the command-and-staff exercises with the territorial defense forces of the Grodno Region were launched on June 13. The drills are mainly aimed at boosting the level of the readiness and ability of the governing bodies and territorial defense forces to carry out the tasks in conditions of rapidly changing situation».

So the high intensity of combat training of troops today seems to become the distinctive feature of military activity of our days.

Russian RS-28 Sarmat Deadliest Weapons on Earth

Russia is being seriously prepare RS-28 Sarmat nuclear missiles, which have a terrible explosion. RS-28 Sarmat reportedly able to eliminate the entire country in just seconds. Satan-2 missile equipped with stealth technology that helped him elude enemy radar systems.


The official name is actually Satan missile RS-28 Sarmat and his plan will replace the Soviet R-36 m missile that‘s been unused. However, NATO military experts describe himas Satan. “Satan-2 Missiles not only became the successor to the R-36 m, but also to a certain extent will determine which way the world nuclear deterrence will be developed,”sounding networking news reports, Russia Zvezda.

In addition to using stealth technology, The Sarmat super-missile that will come with up to 16 nuclear warheads, weighs 100 tons and has the ability to boost as much as 10 tons, and has a speed of 7 kilometers per second. Not only that, it also has a defense weapon anti missile attack. The American Minuteman III ICBM, on the other hand, weighs only 39 tons and carries up to three warheads, according to a report from Popular Mechanics. This ability makes it could destroy the region the size of Texas or France.

Satan-2 has a range of up to 10,000 km, allowing Moscow to attack European cities including London as well as major cities on America’s west and east coasts.

This weapon has exhibited Russia and create commotion European countries and the US. The reason has a warhead of up to 40 megatons, with 2,000 times the power of the atomic bomb that devastated Nagasaki and Hiroshima in WWII (World War II).



What about the RS-28 Sarmat A.K.A SATAN-2 ??

I think this is the most terrible nuclear missiles in the world today ..
