Sistemas de misiles hipersónicos de EUA

By Phil Bainbridge

October 29, 2021 - En una carrera por alcanzar a China y a Rusia, la Fuerza Aérea, el Ejército y la Armada de EUA comparten fondos y tecnología para desarrollar una gama de sistemas de misiles hipersónicos.

Hypersonic missiles fall into two types: boost-glide systems which are launched to high-altitude on a booster and then glide to their target at speeds of up to Mach 20; and hypersonic cruise missiles which are powered during flight by attached engine.

The U.S. military is pursuing the development of a number of integrated systems that combine a boost-glide missile with a ground-based, submarine or air-launched system.
