Military tungsten alloy swaging rod is made of tungsten alloy alloy. Afrter being swaged, the ultimate tensile strength of tungsten alloy rod is increased. The tensile strength of military tungsten alloy swaging rod
can reach 1200MPa, or even 1400MPa. Military tungsten alloy swaging rod is widely used for ASM-135 ASAT.
The ASM-135 ASAT is an air-launched anti-satellite multistage missile that was developed by Ling-Temco-Vought's LTV Aerospace division. The ASM-135 was carried exclusively by the United States Air Force (USAF)'s F-15 Eagle fighter aircraft.
The ASM-135 was designed to be launched from an F-15A in a supersonic zoom climb. The F-15's mission computer and heads-up display were modified to provide steering directions for the pilot. The actual intercept was done subsonically.
With high tensile strength and high hardness of military tungsten alloy swaging rod, ASM-135 ASAT can destroy satellite by using kinetic energy.
