-- Hypersonic weapons incorporate the speed of a ballistic missile with the maneuvering capabilities of a cruise missile. Hypersonic weapons refer to weapons that travel faster than Mach 5 (~3,800mph) and have the capability to maneuver during the entire flight.
Since United States, Russia and China are already in the Hypersonic arms race it's time for India to take another step in Hypersonic Arms Race that is to develop Hypersonic Glide Vehicle as India is already developing Hypersonic missiles.
will be India's first Hypersonic Glide Vehicle. HTNP Industries (HTNP Industries Private Limited) will be Developing this Hypersonic Glide Vehicle in collaboration with government and other non-government corporate entities.
India must enter this race because There is probably less than a decade available to substantially hinder the potential proliferation of hypersonic missiles and associated technologies. To this end, the report recommends that (1) the United States, Russia, and China should agree not to export complete hypersonic missile systems or their major components and (2) the broader international community should establish controls on a wider range of hypersonic missile hardware and technology.
