USA: The Pentagon was testing supersonic weapons

“This is a step closer to giving the US military the next generation of combat capability,” said Andrew Nadler, director of the Tactical Technology Office at the Army Technology Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA).

– We are preparing our next designs and will be working on additional tests later this year – he added. “The Northrobe Cromman Scramjet (supersonic jet combustion) engine was launched from a rocket developed by Radeon Technologies just seconds before launch,” Darba said.

Wes Kramer, head of Radeon Missiles & Defense, noted that “the Ministry of Defense has identified supersonic weapons and hypersonic capabilities as high technological priorities for the security of our country.”

“The United States and our allies must prevent other nations from using these weapons,” he added.

Northrop’s Scramjet engine technology uses the rocket’s speed to forcibly compress incoming air before fuel and allow continuous supersonic flight. “Such a missile works best in an oxygen-rich atmosphere, where speed and maneuverability are difficult to detect in a short period of time. It can hit targets much faster than supersonic missiles and has considerable kinetic energy without explosives.”

In July, Russia announced that it had successfully tested a zircon supersonic cruise missile, President Vladimir Putin said, adding that it was part of a new generation of missile systems that are not equal in the world.
