New in technology of rocket science

Missiles remains the backbone of strategic offensive forces of the United States. This is due, on the one hand, its relatively high efficiency, and with another — a relatively low cost compared to other components of the triad (strategic bombers and nuclear missile submarines).

Evidence of attention of the US administration to missile technology was put into service in 1986 intercontinental missiles MX in fixed configurations based, works on preparation for the deployment of 50 missiles of this type on railway platforms, as well as the further development of the program to create a small-sized mobile intercontinental ballistic missile

High molecular weight polyethylene — a revolution in the means of body armor

High molecular weight plastic sheeting as new armor material now actual cally makes a similar revolution in the means of body armor, as once made of Kevlar — Representative chemical aramid fibers, has come to replace the synthetic nylon. This material has advantages over aramids, not only in the ballistic resistance, and on the cost parameters and operational requirements (not «afraid» of water, etc.). Currently, the high plastic sheeting is widely used in bullet-proof vests, armor vehicles, ships, planes. Developers are trying to use this material for head protection. Back in 2007, commissioned by the Marine Corps (ILC) of

Turkish armored vehicle ARMA

ARMA 6×6The modular tactical wheeled armored vehicle ARMA designed and created by Turkish company Otokar. Car platform 6×6 was unveiled at Eurosatory 2010 in Paris in June 2010. Amphibian can carry a crew of 10 people, including the commander, driver and eight fighter.

Armored personnel carrier mobility is flexible and provides the highest level of mine and ballistic protection. The modular design allows for different configurations of weapons and equipment to please the demands of modern combat and other tactical tasks. Expected ARMA will be more profitable than its rivals, and possess tremendous technical and tactical capabilities.

Otokar is

Developer: The technology of prefabricated radar has only Our homeland

Our homeland only has the technology of creation of prefabricated radar (radar) to track missile launches, said on Thursday the Director General of "RTI", the developer of Russian missile warning (EWS) Sergey Fights.

"The performance properties of our radar highest operational readiness is higher than zabugornyh peers: range target detection on power consumption. All other performance characteristics of our radars are also better, "- said the Loot, RIA" Novosti ".

The commander of the Aerospace Defence Lt. Gen. Oleg Ostapenko told reporters noted the ability of Russian military-industrial complex in this direction.

"I think our defense industry and scientific

Israeli armored RAM Mk III

On the international aerospace exhibition FIDAE-2012 in Santiago (Chile), an Israeli company Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) presented its own new armored car RAM Mk III 'AT' (Anti-Tank), created to destroy enemy armored vehicles.

Brand new vehicle configuration was based on the model adopted by the arms and light armored vehicle with high cross-RAM Mk III, designed and made RAMTA, division of IAI. The configuration of RAM Mk III 'AT' was developed after painstaking research experience of fighting and field trials.

"A massive combination of superior maneuverability and firepower allows mobile fighting forces to reincarnate hard walkable area to its

Pilots eyes F-35 can create a distance of 1200 km

The company Northrop Grumman announced the successful testing of a unique electron optical system (EOS) with a distributed aperture AN/AAQ-37 (DAS) for the fighter of the 5th generation F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter. System, mounted on plane-stand, which accompanied the launch and found a two-stage missile at a distance greater than 1200 km. Accompanying the launch went 9 minutes — from launch to fuel exhaustion.

These numbers look indescribable, and yet, the company argued that it is only part of the capacity of the future aircraft. EOS DAS F-35 will be capable of a 360-degree view from
