(Original title: Japan will develop hypersonic cruise missiles to include 6.4 billion yen in research fees)

According to the Japanese Kyodo News reported on September 19, the Japanese Defense Ministry will develop a speed of 5 times the speed of sound above the speed, can pass through the "supersonic cruise missile" of the other radar network. In the 2019 budget application, 6.4 billion yen (about 400 million yuan) was included as a technical research fee for developing a hypersonic special engine.

As hypersonic cruise missiles are seen as a new generation of weapons to replace nuclear weapons, concerns about the development of "attack capabilities against enemy bases" such as attacking enemy missile launchers are also likely to increase.

According to the report, the technical research fee for the "supersonic combustion ramjet" that makes hypersonic speed possible is written into the budget. After realizing the technology of burning jet fuel in high-speed flight and the technology of heat-resistant materials, a prototype of the engine will be produced. After that, from 2023 to 2025, trials will be carried out in facilities that reproduce air flow. In recent years, the Ministry of Defense has promoted the long-range and high-speed of the equipment it holds. In 2018, the cost of introducing long-range cruise missiles was included in the budget.

In addition, the period of practical use of this technology is still unknown, and it is intended to seek cooperation from JAXA, which has aircraft research results.

The report also mentioned that the United States, China and Russia are competing for the development of hypersonic weapons. The Japanese Defense Ministry said that "the purpose of developing hypersonic cruise missiles is to improve the capabilities of existing anti-ship missiles, which are different from those of the United States," and said that "the idea of ??relying on the United States for the ability to attack enemy bases remains unchanged."
