PENTAGON DESIGNING ‘GLIDE BREAKER’ INTERCEPTOR TO HIT ENEMY HYPERSONIC MISSILES – MEDIA

The Pentagon’s DARP agency has started to develop a hard-kill interceptor capable of hitting incoming hypersonic projectiles. The move follows news of Russia’s success in building top-class high-speed weapons.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has launched a high-tech project to develop an interceptor to shoot down enemy hypersonic missiles, the Drive reported.

In September, DARPA displayed concept art of the project, named 'Glide Breaker', which depicted features of a hard-kill, kinetic interceptor that is capable of engaging unpowered, high-speed vehicles, the Drive said. The agency’s Tactical Technology Office had previously hosted a gathering to explain the project and its requirements in July 2018, according to the media outlet.

Little information on the project has been made available to the public so far. Back in July, DARPA said that the objective of Glide Breaker will be “to further the capability of the United States to defend against supersonic and the entire class of hypersonic threats.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sounds great, but why are DARPA and our weapons manufacturers still trying to play "catch up" with this technology, rather than being ahead of the curve here?!/

That... is the problem.
