Target Spotting: US Navy

The US Navy is seeking to develop a new target vehicle described as “supersonic” and “multi-stage”. You can read the solicitation here.

I have not been previoulsy aware of a specific need in the navy for such a target. It’s possible that this is part of the navy’s Threat D program, which seeks to do something about the ongoing scare over the emergence in China, India and Russia of supersonic sea-skimming anti-ship missiles, for which the USN has no proven and reliable countermeasure.
