Multiple Kill Vehicle (MKV-L) hover test
    #162036 - 12/13/08 07:38 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)



Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) announced today that its team successfully conducted a free-flight hover test of the U.S. Missile Defense Agencys Multiple Kill Vehicle-L. Conducted Dec. 2 at the National Hover Test Facility at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., the test met all objectives.

During an engagement with the enemy, the MKV-L with its cargo of kill vehicles will maneuver into the threat complex to intercept all lethal targets, along with any countermeasures the enemy may deploy in an attempt to trick the system. With tracking data from the Ballistic Missile Defense System and its own seeker, the MKV-L will dispense and guide the kill vehicles to destroy multiple targets.

The full-scale prototype flew at an altitude of approximately 23 feet (7 meters) for 20 seconds, maneuvering while simultaneously tracking a target.

This test demonstrated the integrated operation of the MKV-L in near-earth flight, said Rick Reginato, Multiple Kill Vehicle program director, Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company. This represents a major step forward for the earliest operational payload designed to destroy multiple threat objects with a single missile defense interceptor.

Wonder how much one of these are. Tax dollars hard at work, but it is nice to know they have these things if we ever to have to go to war.
