Surely SALVO is simply a modernised air-launched ASAT system? What else could it be, when the commercial world has looked at, and rejected, such micro-launchers time and time again, and for good reasons?This is a weapons system, guys, and not in terms of information warfare, either.
I have just found this article on SALVO with an artist impression:http://www.americaspace.com/?p=83211
Any info, when the SALVO will fly?The last news from Ventions was in September, when they successfully conducted a static fire test of electric pump-fed SALVO stage.
Ventions awarded 2 DARPA contracts for on-going development of electric-pump fed propulsion and launch vehicle stage technologies.
Has anyone heard any news on SALVO? Still active development or has it died together with Boeing's ALASA?
