Stealthy Air-launched cruise missile

Cruise missile is any weapon which automatically flies an essentially horizontal cruise flight profile for most of the duration of its flight between launch and its terminal trajectory to impact. The hallmark of a cruise missile is its incredible accuracy. A common statement made about the cruise missile is, “It …

Missile manufacturing

In military terminology,  a missile is a guided airborne ranged weapon capable of self-propelled flight usually by a jet engine or rocket motor. Missiles have five system components: targeting, guidance system, flight system, engine, and warhead. Missiles come in types adapted for different purposes: surface-to-surface and air-to-surface missiles (ballistic, cruise, …

Close-In Weapons System (CIWS) provides last chance Defense for Naval ships

A close-in weapon system (CIWS),  is a point-defense weapon for detecting and destroying short-range incoming missiles and enemy aircraft which have penetrated the outer defenses, typically mounted shipboard in a naval capacity. Nearly all classes of modern warship are equipped with some kind of CIWS device.   CIWS Systems There …

Global Fusion Reactor race for unlimited source of clean, cheap energy and develop advanced strategic weapons

Both fission and fusion produce energy from atoms. Nuclear fission is the method currently used in power plants where uranium atoms from a heavy, unstable nucleus are split into two or more lighter nuclei. Nuclear fusion is the other way around and involves fusing two light atoms into a larger …

Solid Rocket Motors (SRM) are critical to space and defense missions

The function of the propulsion system is to produce thrust, which is the force that moves a rocket through air and space. Different propulsion systems generate thrust in different ways, but always through some application of Newton’s third law of motion. In any propulsion system, a working fluid is accelerated …

Railgun being deployed on Warships to Trucks to shoot down stealth aircraft , hypersonic missiles to satellites

Electromagnetic Rail Gun, EMRG ,  is a cannon that uses electricity rather than chemical propellants (i.e., gunpowder charges) to launch projectiles at distances over 100 nautical miles – and at speeds  exceeding Mach 5.  In EMRG, “magnetic fields created by high electrical currents accelerate a sliding metal conductor, or armature, between two rails to …

Russia, US, and China leading the world Hypersonic Weapons Race for prompt global strike capability, Strategic bombing from outer space and defeating all missile defenses

Hypersonic refers to aircraft, missiles, rockets, and spacecraft that can reach atmospheric speeds in excess of Mach 5, which is almost 4,000 miles per hour or 6,125 kilometers per hour or more.  Flying along the edge of space while gliding and maneuvering these missiles would strike targets with unprecedented speed …
