RUSSIA WILL COMPLETE S-400 DELIVERIES TO INDIA IN 2025
Friday, January 17, 2020
NEW DELHI -- India will receive its final S-400 air defense system by 2025, according to Russian deputy chief of mission Roman Babushkin. Russia is already building the S-400s destined for delivery to India. The S-400 is an upgraded version of the S-300 surface-to-air missile (SAM) system.

Almaz-Antey is the prime contractor for the S-400 program. This system has been in service with the Russian armed forces since 2007.

X-60A PROGRAM CONDUCTS INTEGRATED VEHICLE PROPULSION SYSTEM VERIFICATION TEST
Tuesday, January 14, 2020
WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- The U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory’s X-60A program recently achieved a key developmental milestone with the completion of integrated vehicle propulsion system verification ground testing.

The X-60A is an air-launched rocket designed for hypersonic flight research. It is being developed by Generation Orbit Launch Services under an AFRL Small Business Innovation Research contract. The goal of the X-60A program is to provide affordable and routine access to relevant hypersonic flight conditions for technology maturation. This test included both cold-flow and hot-fire testing with the Hadley liquid rocket engine developed by Ursa Major Technologies. Flight-like hardware was tested using flight-like operational procedures. The test runs covered full-duration burns, engine gimbaling for thrust vector control, and system throttling.

X-60A is a single-stage liquid rocket primarily designed for hypersonic flight research and is launched from a modified business jet carrier aircraft. It is capable of testing a wide range of hypersonic technologies including airbreathing propulsion, advanced materials and hypersonic vehicle subsystems. The vehicle propulsion system utilizes liquid oxygen and kerosene propellants. The system is designed to provide affordable and regular access to high dynamic pressure flight conditions above Mach 5.

During the upcoming flight tests based out of Cecil Spaceport in Jacksonville, Florida, the X-60A will fly at relevant conditions necessary for technology maturation. Data will be collected to validate the overall vehicle design functionality as well as performance predictions.

U.S. COULD FIELD SHORE-BASED ANTI-SHIP MISSILES
Thursday, January 16, 2020
ARLINGTON -- The United States could deploy a coastal defense missile system. The U.S. Marine Corps and Navy could use the Naval Strike Missile (NSM) to meet this need.

The Marine Corps could use the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) as the launch vehicle. The HIMARS is already in service with the Marine Corps.

The NSM is the successor to Kongsberg's Penguin short-to-medium range anti-ship guided missile. The U.S. Navy deployed the USS Gabrielle Giffords, Independence-class littoral combat ship (LCS), in 2019 to the Indo-Pacific region. The ship was armed with the NSM.

Kongsberg Gruppen and Raytheon were selected in 2019 to install the NSM aboard most LCSs by 2023.
