Counter Hypersonics Mission

The introduction of hypersonics, maneuvering missile threats that operate within the atmosphere at over five times the speed of sound, has created a new challenge for defending the homeland and deployed forces of the U.S. and its allies. Ensuring that our forces can track and defeat these advanced weapons is a national imperative.

Counter Hypersonics Mission

History demonstrates that no weapon is invincible. Northrop Grumman, in partnership with the U.S. government and industry, can neutralize these hypersonic threats and protect our nation and its warfighters against these modern destructive weapons. Northrop Grumman and our teammates are working together on groundbreaking solutions to detect, track and defeat modern hypersonic missiles in various phases of flight.


As an industry leader in missile defense with decades of experience, Northrop Grumman has the people, talent and technology required to deliver a layered defense from left of launch to detection, tracking and successful intercept.

These capabilities will complement today's robust ballistic missile defense system while performing responsive day-to-day functions, providing lasting value and protection to the nation and its warfighters.
