In order to address ongoing near-peer hypersonic capability development, the Army is accelerating the fielding of its own long-range hypersonic weapon. As part of the overall Army modernization strategy, the Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office is tasked with expediting the delivery of hypersonic capabilities to the Warfighter, and this discussion will highlight these efforts to deliver this game-changing capability.

 

-      Critical needs to bolster delivery of Army hypersonic weapon system

-      Roadmap to hypersonic fielding by FY2023: necessary next steps

-      Production efforts of the Common Hypersonic Glide Body
