The U.S. Navy has tested the second stage of the hypersonic missile engine

The U.S. Navy conducted fire tests of a solid-fuel engine of the second stage for hypersonic missiles, the press service of the Navy reports.

The tests were conducted in Utah, where the first-stage engine was successfully tested three months ago, which will be used in promising hypersonic systems of sea and land-based.

“The Naval Strategic Systems Program successfully tested a solid-fuel rocket engine of the second stage on August 25 in Promontory, Utah… This marks the success of testing both stages of the rocket accelerator being developed, as well as the thrust vector control system of the solid-fuel engine,” the report says.

The engine is designed for advanced systems of the U.S. Navy and Ground Forces, which will have a single missile equipped with a non-nuclear hypersonic gliding unit.

The U.S. military expects to receive new weapons, the analogs of which are already at the disposal of Russia and China, “in the early-mid 2020s.”
