In the United States have tested the latest missile MALD-X, which is able to deceive the air defense system. About it reported in a press-service of the Ministry of defense.
According to authorities, the successful flight of the spacecraft was held on 20 and 22 August on the basis of the naval air point Mugu on the coast of California.
Missile MALD-X, often called the unmanned simulator, developed by the Raytheon company, which received the contract on its creation in 2016 in the amount of 34.8 million dollars. These missiles are capable (based on updates to the software) to simulate various types of aircraft, including the “own aircraft”. This allows you to mislead the detection and targeting air defense of the enemy.
