 Here comes the golden bell jar: the United States begins to develop airborne micro self defense missiles


According to the report, the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory has given a green light to Raytheons missile systems company. Raytheon will begin to develop a micro missile system that can be used for aircraft self-defense.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Defense announced an agreement worth about $375 million for a small missile interception system designed to protect military aircraft from the threat of air defense missiles. The research and development work will be carried out in Tucson, Arizona, and is expected to be completed in October 2023.

According to the report, the mini self-defense missile is an active defense system that can intercept and shoot down air-to-air missiles launched by the enemy, with surgical interception accuracy and minimal collateral damage. This kind of micro missile will be able to help aircraft with weak protection ability, such as early warning aircraft and refueling aircraft, to defend advanced long-range air defense missiles.

The micro missile system program is designed to provide the air force with the ability to defeat enemy threats to aircraft in an anti intervention / blockade environment, said Jasmine Portfield, a spokesman for Eglin air force base.
