This is an extract of a 60 minute live webcast available to subscribers of Jane's Intelligence Centres. In this briefing focusing on hypersonic missiles, Jane's analysts will explore a new generation of weapons, specifically intended or designed for the A2/AD missions in the modern battlefield. The briefing will also look at the recent developments and future programmes that are rapidly advancing the capabilities and maturity of these systems, and provide details of systems coming in to operation with militaries worldwide. China, Russia and the United States are all currently investing heavily in hypersonics, while a few other countries are also exploring the technology to a much lesser degree. To date, Jane's estimates the US to have spent over USD3.3 billion for the research and development of hypersonic technologies and weapons, with a further 2020 budget request of USD2.6 billion. Underpinned by Jane's verified and validated open source equipment, security and defence industry data, Jane's Data Analytics supports entity recognition, capability assessment and market analysis, find out more http://bit.ly/2x6tlQ9
