LONDON: 11 in the territory of China successfully conducted a ground-based midcourse missile defense intercept test, the test is defensive in nature, not against any country. The news was announced immediately attracted media attention.
Foreign media analysis of China’s missile capabilities
British “Chinese Defense” website, and Canada, “Chinese Defense Review” magazine analysis, said China is using advanced equipped to actively respond to ballistic missile threats, protect key domestic goals. According to reports, the Chinese Air Force has begun volume HQ-9 long-range air defense missiles and equipment, the missile has the anti-ballistic missile capability. The missile has a maximum range estimated to be 300 km to intercept ballistic missiles when the effective range of 25 kilometers, the largest fire is 15 km, the minimum shoot 0.5 kilometers. From the parameter point of view, HQ-9 is a similar to the U.S. Patriot anti-missile equipment 2 in the atmosphere.
“Chinese Defense” website said that from the HQ-9 air defense missile technology and equipment performance and speed of the PLA, China “is clearly in its core to build the theater-level missile defense system.” Prior to the introduction of China’s Russian-made S-300 air defense missiles, although a considerable range with the HQ-9, but the lack of anti-missile capabilities, can only perform a single air defense mission. Late last year published “Chinese Defense Review,” the analysis said that China is building a missile defense system, the main object of protection is the capital of Beijing as the core of the Bohai Sea economic circle, the future may be extended to other important areas of domestic, such as Shanghai and the Three Gorges dam.
the website that China plans to build large-scale anti-missile systems, in addition to satellite, radar, long-range air defense missiles, but may also include short-range air defense missiles, fighter planes, antiaircraft guns, early warning aircraft and so on. In a sense, China is attempting to build a missile defense system as an opportunity, will be fully available for air defense weapon systems integration to form a core area for the defense of capital, technology, complex multi-level air and space defense system.
What is the missile defense system?
missile defense system is the ballistic missile defense system referred to as the United States believes that all of the ballistic missile threat than the United States, are “theater ballistic missile”, only to hit the U.S. mainland ballistic missiles, is the “strategic ballistic missiles.” Thus, theater missile defense (TMD) system with a national missile defense (NMD) system together constitute the U.S. “ballistic missile defense” (BMD) concept of two elements. U.S. Department of Defense Ballistic Missile Defense Agency as a specific manager.
the U.S. Department of Defense Missile Defense Agency ballistic missile defense system is divided into three parts.
first part contains the reconnaissance satellite positioning systems, forward-deployed radar, X 波海基雷达, early warning radar, the Aegis radar system, early warning and detection systems;
second part consists of space-based laser anti-missile weapon platform equipped with the Aegis’ SM-3 “missile, unmanned aerial vehicles and other new weapons, ground-based midcourse ballistic missile defense systems, sea-based terminal defense weapon,” Patriot 3 “missile, Terminal High Altitude Area defense missile system is defensive weapons systems;
The third part is the command, control, battle management and communications systems.
due to hit the target missile from launch to flight to go through three stages: initial, middle and end piece. Experts to intercept ballistic intercept divided into initial segment, the middle block and end block. For example, the U.S. military use of space-based laser anti-missile weapon platform equipped with the Aegis’ SM-3 “missile, unmanned aerial vehicles and other new weapons, reconnaissance satellite positioning system, the forward deployment of the radar with the help of the intercept is the initial segment , according to the U.S. military’s vision, to intercept a target missile when flying out of the atmosphere after the ignition has not.
because blocking the deployment of weapons in different ways, were also called land-, sea-, space-based interceptor weapons. For example, deployed on the ground of the “Patriot” missile is a ground-based interceptor weapons, Aegis destroyers equipped with the “standard 3″ on the part of sea-based interceptor missile weapons.
What is the ground-based midcourse missile defense?
According to the U.S. Department of Defense Missile Defense Agency introduced the site, ground-based midcourse ballistic missile defense system the U.S. ballistic missile defense system as part of its U.S. homeland defense mission is to protect U.S. military , friends and allies, from in-range ballistic missile attacks.
The system includes multiple detection system and signal transmission systems, fire control capability and has a variety of land-based interceptor missiles to detect, track and destroy flying in the middle of the long-range ballistic missiles. Direct impact on the use of interceptors would be to destroy the missile into the atmosphere. Outer atmosphere, the destruction of about 24,000 km interceptor striking the target per hour. This “direct destruction” technology has undergone a series of emission tests, including land-based interceptor missiles in combat validation.
ground-based midcourse missile defense system consists of two main parts: the ground-based interceptor missiles and ground systems.
ground-based interceptor missiles by the solid fuel booster rocket and a three outer atmosphere, killing an interceptor components. After launch, the booster rocket to the atmosphere outside the interceptor to intercept the intended target to go through the area. Outer atmosphere of anti-interceptor and the rocket separated, according to the flight itself from the ground radar and sensors to receive the data carried close to the target warhead, the use of direct impact arising from the kinetic energy in the warhead into the Earth’s atmosphere before its destruction.
ground system in the ground-based midcourse ballistic missile defense system in central nervous system play a role. Ground system is responsible for intercepting the missile launch, connecting all the hardware, software, equipment and transmission systems. These devices and systems for operational planning, implementation and control intercept system is necessary.
Currently, the U.S. interceptor missiles deployed at Fort Greely in Alaska and California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base. U.S. military plans in both the deployment of 30 interceptor missiles. Ground-based midcourse ballistic missile defense system, fire control center is set in the United States, Colorado and Alaska.
how to play the power of ground-based interceptor missiles?
ballistic missile threat to the U.S. website the article said that the U.S. land-based missile interceptor (GBI) is a system of multi-stage rocket silos, and is in the middle of ballistic (ie, the missile is still outside the atmosphere and when in the most high-speed track) can track and destroy ballistic missiles of high-speed interceptor. Ground-based interceptor missiles, when executed, will be the U.S. Missile Defense Agency Ground-based Midcourse Defense system, an important part. The missile was deployed in September 2004 planning.
, as currently conceived, each a ground-based interceptor missiles by the two components: a three-stage booster rocket and the outer atmosphere of anti-interceptor. Once deployed, ground-based interceptor missile interceptors will be placed in underground silos, and satellite and radar network connection, continuously scanning the globe from the threat posed. If you detect incoming enemy missiles, ground-based interceptor missile launch control center will be issued an order specifying the ground-based interceptor missiles from silos in the spray out, and flew toward the target the desired location. During the flight, the missile can receive satellite and radar information at any time to update the tracking line.
about 100 seconds before impact, killing the atmosphere outside the interceptor infrared detectors open, began tracking incoming ballistic missiles. In order to completely resolve the missile threat, interceptor warhead will be the “best and effective” position for impact. “Best effective point” in the payload of warheads within a few centimeters wide area. Precise impact will warheads Knocked powder, can destroy any nuclear missile carried by agents, chemical agents or biological agents.
