“The budget for the 2022 fiscal year provides for the acquisition of these systems since these systems are being developed in quantities that go beyond the scope, “said Michael White, a representative of the Pentagon’s research and development department.
He added that the US plans to accelerate the deployment of the potential in hypersonic. According to White, the development of offensive and defensive systems in this area is underway.
In April, the United States announced unsuccessful tests of a hypersonic missile. At the end of May, the US Navy tested the capabilities of a solid-fuel engine for the first stage of a hypersonic missile.
