DARPA’s ‘Glide Breaker’ hypersonic missile interceptor program enters new phase


A U.S. military proposal to blast hypersonic weapons out of the sky is entering a new phase.

The program, a “hypersonic defense interceptor” system called Glide Breaker, aims to counteract highly maneuverable weapons zooming through the upper atmosphere at speeds of at least Mach 5. (Mach 1 is the speed of sound; “hypersonic” generally refers to vehicles traveling at least five times that fast.)
