Pentagon: US fails to force promising military developments

2020-01-18T03:00:59.739Z

The Deputy Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Armed Forces, General John Haiten, said that the United States has not yet been able to accelerate a number of promising military developments, including in the field of creating hypersonic weapons, even though it understands the lag behind other powers.



He stated this at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.

“We need to understand what failure consists of, learn from these failures, learn from the mistakes we made, and quickly move away from these mistakes. I look into the past on hypersonic weapons. We are now in a state of serious competition with a number of rivals in the world in the field of hypersonic weapons. And ten years ago we were ahead in the development of hypersonic weapons. We had two programs - HTV-1 and HTV-2 under the auspices of DARPA. They did not work. What did we do after they failed? We began many years of research into these failures, and then closed the programs. They’re not accelerating this way! ”TASS quoted him as saying.

Earlier it was reported that the Department of Defense's promising research projects with Lockheed Martin signed a contract for the implementation of the third phase of work on OpFires hypersonic missile weapons in the amount of $ 31.9 million.
