The US. Navy Vice Adm. Jon Hill, the head of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency, or MDA has indicated that the U.S already has a weapon that can intercept highly-maneuverable incoming hypersonic projectiles.

The weapon is the SM-6 missile

Hill made the remarks about the SM-6 during a discussion about hypersonic defense capabilities at the American Society of Naval Engineers' Combat Systems Symposium, which opened on Jan. 31

Viewers may note that MDA is leading an effort to develop a layered defense architecture against hypersonic threats that includes an array of ground and space-based sensors and several types of interceptors.

In this video Defense Updates analyzes how the U.S military can knock down hypersonic threats using SM-6 missile?
