China claims to have defeated the United States to develop the next generation of hypersonic missiles

New Delhi: China has defeated the United States in developing heat-detecting hypersonic missiles that can reach targets such as aircraft carriers and mobile vehicles, the Daily Mail reported.

Developments that are likely to add fierceness to the ongoing arms race between China, the United States and Russia will occur after Beijing rejects testing of nuclear-capable hypersonic missiles in August.

The projectile that circled the planet raised concerns among US officials, but China claimed that the missile launch was for a spacecraft.

But now, researchers at the National University of Defense Technology in China claim to have developed a technology that allows hypersonic missiles to find targets based on their thermal properties, the report said. ..

In a scientific paper published last month, chief scientist Professor Yi Shihe said that China “has a series of core technology breakthroughs that have proven effective in testing,” according to a study quoted by the South China Morning Post. Claimed to have achieved.

If so, that means China may have overcome the difficulty of developing a heat-seeking system that can work at hypersonic speeds.

This feat is a challenge, as the pace of the missile itself creates heat, which can interfere with the detection system.

According to the report, the latest developments are underway in the concerns of experts that hypersonic missiles will spark World War and Russia, China and the United States are all working on next-generation missiles. It has been.
