US ARMY AWARDS TWO KEY HYPERSONIC MISSILE CONTRACTS

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

The race for hypersonic missiles heated up last week when the US Army awarded two key contracts to catch up to Russia and China. After a decade of experimental prototypes, the Army is expected to get its hands on hypersonic missiles that will be fielded in the next four years, reported Breaking Defense.

Dynetics won the first contract to produce 20 Common Hypersonic Glide Bodies (C-HGB) for both the Army and the Navy.

Lockheed Martin won the second, with a $347 million contract to upgrade eight of the C-HGBs with guidance systems, rocket boosters, protective canisters, and a missile battery that can house four Long Range Hypersonic Weapon (LRHW) launchers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Upon reading this, I am reminded of a little sign on the wall, of the Band Director's Studio, at Hillsdale, Highschool, which read: "RESULTS: NOT EXCUSES!!"

I hope these companies collectively understand, that time is NOT on their side, in this endeavor.

Duke Compagna, the Band Director at Hillsdale High in San Mateo, was an inspiration to hundreds of kids over the years, as their band director; a gentle, caring Alpha male, who created a really fine band ensemble.

And to his spirit; Duke, we still remember you, fondly!! :-)
