Future Trends in Missile Technology


             It is overall known that the 20th century is the century of technological development for
             the human race. People who has lived in the early years of this century and whose quickiest
             way to get to another place has been riding a horse wouldn't believe that they are still on the
             earth, if they had the opportunity to come to the present and see hypersonic airplanes of
             today's world. According to the fact that the human race who couldn't rise even three meters
             high from the face of the earth along thousands of years, until the start of the 20th century, has
             achieved flying to the moon in very short time, in sixty years, it is clear that the speed of
             technological development is increasing day by day.
             And also the development in missile technology follows a parabolically rising path as in
             every other technological field in the world. The future political and strategic situation in
             the world will determine in which way the missile technology will be developed. The
             changing aims and forms of military scenarios will result in new design goals and system
             requirements for missiles. The features of the next generation of missiles will have to meet
             these new criteria (Hennig, 1994, p.1). In other words, a lot of new technologies for
             missiles will be developed in the future to meet new design and development demands in
             missile technology that are formed depending upon the future political and strategic
             conditions in the world. Forecasting the future of the missile technology, including future conditions that will determine the features of the next missile generation, new design and development demands depending upon these future conditions, and new technologies that are being developed or will be developed by the scientists to meet these new design and development demands, is only possible by understanding its development path.
