Iran Unveils “Exo-Atmospheric Trajectory Maneuvering Technology” for its Ballistic Missiles


On the last day of the “Great Prophet 17” exercise, Iran unveiled for the first time the exo-atmospheric trajectory maneuvering technology of its detachable warheads for Qadr medium-range ballistic missile.

The technology or maneuverability of warhead outside atmosphere is performed with the help of pressurized gas thrusts or dual liquid fuel, and by changing the direction of the warhead, the trajectory is variable and the exact direction of the warhead is unpredictable. Therefore, this capability greatly reduces the chances of an air defense missile hitting a warhead.

The exo-atmospheric trajectory maneuvering technology, in addition to increase accuracy, guiding and maneuvering of Qadr missile in the atmosphere enhances its penetrability against missile defenses.

The maneuverability of medium- to high-range ballistic missile warheads can be achieved in two ways: maneuverability outside the atmosphere and hypersonic flight in the atmosphere. Considering the challenges of hypersonic wave rider warheads such as temperature management, guidance, materials and manufacturing process, the exo-atmospheric maneuvering method seems to be the most optimal option considering the performance, cost and time to upgrade conventional ballistic missile warheads in order to escape the air defense missiles.

For example, in this method, the old warheads can be upgraded and there is no need to use new complex and expensive refractory materials; The base design of the warheads does not change much and there is no need to design from the base.

According to studies, apparently the only country that has officially unveiled and used exo-atmospheric maneuvering technology so far is Russia and the Topol-MR intercontinental ballistic missile. Now, with this unveiling, Iran is one of the owners of this technology.

  1. Only Russia and Iran have this?
    I find it impossible to believe there is any military technology, advanced or not, which America doesn’t hold not only the prototypes, but the state of the art.
    And that includes all the fake ones as well. 🤔🤠

    • The United States had the Technology first,
      but it was stolen by Israeli Spy Jonathon Pollard
      and he sold it to the Russians and Chinese.

  2. “Once we squeeze everything out of the United States it can dry up and blow away.”
    Benjamin Netanyahu, overheard by Federal Marshalls while speaking to Convicted Israeli Spy Jonathon Pollard.
    Of course, Jonathon Pollard is a Hero in Israel.
    That is how much Apartheid Israel hates the United States!
    Wouldn’t it be Karma if the Secret Missile Technology that
    Israeli Spy Jonathon Pollard stole from the United States, and then
    sold to Russia and China, was used against Israel?

    • Always remember, Sarge, most Zionists in the USA are so-called Christian. 80% of them voted for Trump in the last election. They also look forward to the end of the USA as we know it and the beginning of some kind of Zionist theocracy. They are why we will never make peace with Iran, or with Russia. Both nations figure into their crazy end-times eschatology. If you don’t believe this, just listen to any sermon by Pastor John Hagee.

    • Tommy My Friend!
      Well, it’s true what you say but you know what Bob Dylan said:
      “The Times They Are A Changein’ ”
      John Hagee is 83 years old.
      The Average age of a Republican Trump Voter is 78 years old!
      Sure, John Hagee fills up that Mega Church, but for how long?
      Check it out on you tube when they were chanting:
      “Let’s Go Brandon”
      A sea of blue hair, and I would guess most of them are unvaccinated.
      And remember, these folks always vote against health care.
