DOD seeking $1.5B for SCO in FY-19, including $438M for seven new projects

The Strategic Capabilities Office is seeking nearly $1.5 billion in fiscal year 2019 -- an increase of more than 20 percent over FY-18 -- to develop new and surprising ways of using existing technology to bolster conventional deterrence against China and Russia.

While most of the stuff is known, there are some tidbits new to me in the text above. According to them, it's a "larger than sm-3" missile with capabilities "similar to sm-3", called dn-3.

Here is the OSD budget with most of those SCO programs mentioned in the article -

I guess the implication is that the HVP doesn't have an active seeker so the interferometric radars provide the necessary angular resolution for
some command guided or midcourse update scheme. We've seen similar schemes before.


Fire control radar interferometer test bed for Hypervelocity Terminal Defense Fire Control

Three receive antennas on vertices of a 10 meter baseline equilateral triangle provides measurement accuracy required to command guide gun launched projectile interceptors to direct hit-to- kill impact of incoming ballistic missile targets.

Also, written testimony submitted by James Guerts, assistant Navy secretary for acquisition, offers the first confirmation of the service’s third hypersonic-weapon development program, joining the anti-air Hypervelocity Projectile in development by the Strategic Capabilities Office and the intermediate-range Conventional Prompt Strike (CPS) program.

EMRG? AFAIK there are no plans to field either the GA or BAE design. (IMO they should field both and wring them out.)
