The A1 interceptor, fit-check with the launch structure

May 3, 2024 - The A1 interceptor was placed on the launch structure in preparation for the first launch.

The A1 is a strategic, anti-ballistic and hypersonic missile interceptor developed by ARCA and General Astronautics, aiming to create a new layer of very low-altitude anti-ballistic defence, not covered so far by any other anti-missile system.

The A1 releases a dome of millions of pellets, chaff and flare in the path of the incoming missiles which will hit the dome at hypersonic and supersonic speeds, disabling or even destroying the attacking vehicle at impact.

The A1 follows our policy in regard to the development of exclusively non-lethal, non-offensive weapons.
