Air Force Times reports that Northrop Grumman “last week launched a new campaign website focused on hypersonic defense as part of a broader push into the business area, where the Pentagon expects to spend more than $10 billion in the next five years to develop offensive and defensive capabilities.” Vice President, Missile Defense Solutions Kenn Todorov said that customer input on the burgeoning hypersonic defense market has emphasized experimentation in tackling both kinetic and non-kinetic challenges in battlespace. Added Todorov, “As a company, we’re investing a lot of our own resources to give us a leg up and to do some things so we’ll be ready, forward-looking as opposed to reactionary.” (Image: Artist’s drawing of an X-60A launch.
