Abstract:

As a result of growing concern about threat time critical or mobile targets TCMT, the Department of Defense DoD has recognized the need for ability to place TCMT, with 1 to 15 minute or less dwell times, at risk from surface, subsurface, subsurface andor airborne platforms. This requires the need for a hypersonic weapons capability to deliver lethal payloads at standoff ranges. This document is intended to address the state-of-the-art in the development of hypersonic system development as well as provide some level of operational effectiveness in order to illustrate the advantages of hypersonic velocities.
