The United States Air Force (USAF) announced on Monday that it had successfully tested a hypersonic missile, which traveled at a speed that was five times faster than the speed of sound.


On May 14, the experiment was conducted in the waters off the coast of Southern California.


A B-52 Bomber was responsible for the firing of the Rapid Response Weapon, also known as an ARRW.


Following its separation from the aircraft, the ARRW's booster ignited and burned for the planned period, reaching hypersonic speeds that were five times faster than the speed of sound. This information was provided by the United States Air Force.


"This was a huge accomplishment by the ARRW team, for the weapons enterprise, and for our Air Force," stated Brigadier General Heath Collins, the program executive officer for weapons in the United States Air Force.

He went on to say that "the perseverance, expertise, and commitment of the team were important in overcoming the hurdles that we had over the past year to get us to the current success."


"We are prepared to build on what we've learnt in order to continue advancing hypersonics,"


Even more certain than before, Lieutenant Colonel Michael Jungquist was looking forward to the launch.


He stated that "the test team made sure that we carried out this test in a perfect manner."


"With this first air-launched hypersonic weapon, our highly skilled crew made history," the speaker said.


We are pulling out all the stops to ensure that this game-changing weapon is delivered to the front lines as quickly as humanly possible.
