GLOBAL INTERCEPTOR MISSILE MARKET
- LOCKHEED MARTIN is awarded $932.8 Million contract to develop THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) interceptor ballistic missiles.
- US MDA (Missile Defense Agency) have awarded contract to BOEING, RAYTHEON and LOCKHEED MARTIN worth nearly $169 Million (combined) to work on technology risk reduction on MOKV (Multiple Object Kill Vehicle).
- US Government issued a $506 Million contract to LOCKHEED MARTIN to upgrade PAC-3 (Patriot Advance Capability-3) missiles.
- LOCKHEED MARTIN to build PAC-3 (Patriot Advance Capability-3) missiles for 12 US allied countries worth $77.1 Million.
- BAE Systems is awarded contract worth $139 Million for the development of next generation seeker used in THAAD interceptor missiles.
A missile interceptor is an anti-ballistic missile (under missile defense system), which have explosive as warheads or nuke-enabled warheads. It is used in intercepting intermediate range ballistic missiles launched from a country and intercontinental ballistic missile. It can intercept missiles in different range starting from 20 km to several hundred kilometers and destroys them.
These interceptors can have different MACH speed depending on the build and requirement. It intercepts missiles at high altitudes to minimize the impact of ballistic missiles after crash.
GLOBAL INTERCEPTOR MISSILE MARKET SEGMENTATION
It can be classified on various basis such as-
ON THE BASIS OF OPERATING/ LAUNCH MODE
- Surface to air
- Water to air
ON THE BASIS OF INTERCEPTING RANGE
- Short range: Intercepting range of defense system is less than 125km.
- Medium range: Intercepting range of defense system is between 125km to 200km
- Long range: Intercepting range of defense system is more than 200km
ON THE BASIS OF TYPE
- Endo-atmospheric: when intercepting is done in earth’s atmosphere (up to 100km) then it is termed as endo-atmospheric.
- Exo-atmospheric: when intercepting is done outside earth’s atmosphere (above 100km) then it is termed as Exo-atmospheric.
ON THE BASIS OF COMPONENTS USED
- Global Positioning system (GPS)
- Navigation system
- Electro Optical sensors
- Semi-Active lasers
POINTS TO KNOW
- By the ABM (Anti-Ballistic Missiles) treaty in 1972 and a 1974 revision, each country was allowed to deploy a mere 100 ABMs to protect a single, small area.
- In 2002, USA and in 2006, Russia withdrawn their names from this treaty.
- After the introduction of MIRVs (Multiple Independently Targetable Reentry Vehicle), which are capable of throwing several warheads at a time, ABM systems needed to be modified to intercept such projectiles.
- Only four system in the world is capable of ICBMs (Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles) interception-
- Russian A-135 anti-ballistic missile system
- U.S. Ground-Based Midcourse Defense System (GMD)
- Israeli Arrow 3system
- Indian Prithvi Defense Vehicle Mark-II
ABM SYSTEM FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES
|S.No.||NAME OF ABM||RANGE(KM)||ORIGIN COUNTRY||SPEED(MACH)|
INDIA’S MISSILE INTERCEPTOR DEFENSE SYSTEMS
- Outermost BMD (Ballistic Missile Defense) layer at endo- and exo-atmospheric altitudes (15-25 km, and 80-100 km) for 2000 km ranges
- S-400 layer at ranges of 120, 200, 250, & 380 km
- Barak-8 layer at ranges of 70-100 km
- Akash layer at ranges of 25 km
- Surface to air missiles and gun systems as the inner-most ring of defense
