MODERNIZING the Future of Battle

The future of battle is fast approaching

Hypersonic technology is changing battlefield parameters

Pushing the boundaries of battle to Mach 5 and beyond, up to Mach 20.

Challenging conventional solutions and requiring:

  • Innovation
  • Reliability
  • Proven pedigree

Hypersonics pose challenging, constantly evolving threats to the US and allies.  Countering them will require fast and impactful responses that deliver overmatch and deter aggressors.

However, flying at MACH 5 or faster creates a series of challenges.

CHALLENGE 1: Speed

Flying at more than 5 times the speed of sound creates unique challenges for tracking, identification, and engagement.  Our solutions for space-based sensors and low-earth orbit satellites play an integral role in countering hypersonic threats.

CHALLENGE 2: Heat

Flying at more than 5 times the speed of sound generates significant amounts of heat which threatens the integrity of hypersonic delivery systems

Our thermal barrier coatings, radiation hardened microelectronics and innovations such as self-cooling engines and fuel reduce the heat impact of hypersonic flight.

Challenge 3: Maneuverability

Travelling faster than 5 times the speed of sound requires the ability to maneuver the delivery system to:

  • Avoid enemy defenses
  • Respond to evolving intelligence
  • Be harder for the enemy to track

Our actuation solutions are designed to enable mid-mission maneuvering of Hypersonic assets to respond to changing mission demands.

Challenge 4: Accuracy

With technology capable of hitting a target thousands of miles away in a matter of minutes, Hypersonic systems need to deliver mission critical accuracy.

Our navigation and sensors are proven in service on a myriad of different military applications and enable pin-point accuracy you can rely on, even in GPS-denied environments.

Challenge 5: Control and Communications

With significant payloads moving at such fast speeds, control of, and communication with the delivery system is paramount.

Our antenna, radar and satcom expertise ensures hypersonic assets are contactable, and capable of being controlled remotely as the mission requires.
