We’re likely looking at Russia’s answer to America’s hypersonic glide vehicle that can reach anywhere on the globe within an hour. Meanwhile, the United States has nothing to show that can defend the mainland from a Russian or Chinese attack involving their hypersonic glide vehicles.
In other words, no unauthorized persons will be able to listen to S-500 communications or disrupt them. This will be a significant upgrade to the cutting-edge complex in an age when concealment and resistance to jamming are key features for air defense systems.
Previously, signals could be tracked and intercepted because radio stations used predetermined frequencies. The newest radio communications systems are fully protected against eavesdropping. According to the source, they are highly resistant to jamming since they use pseudo random frequency-hopping among other techniques.
The S-500 Prometey, also known as 55R6M Triumfator-M, is a cutting-edge anti-aircraft and anti-ballistic missile system currently under development in Russia. It is expected to enter service in late 2016 or 2017 and replace the S-300.
The S-500, designed by Almaz Antey, is said to have a range of 600 kilometers (more than 370 miles). The system can simultaneously intercept up to ten ballistic and hypersonic missiles traveling at a speed of 5 kilometers per second. The Prometey is capable of engaging targets at an altitude of up to 200 kilometers (more than 120 miles).
