On April 5th, a British media reported that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s office said in a statement that the United States, Britain, and Australia agreed to work on hypersonic weapons and electronic warfare capabilities following a call between leaders of the new defense alliance, U.S. President Joe Biden and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

The United States and Australia already have a hypersonic weapon program. British officials said that though Britain would not join that program at this point, the three countries would work together on research and development in the area to expand their options.

The report also mentioned that Biden’s administration is investing in the research and development of hypersonic missiles, which travel at five times the speed of sound, as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has intensified concerns about European security.

“In light of Russia’s unprovoked, unjustified, and unlawful invasion of Ukraine, we reiterated our unwavering commitment to an international system that respects human rights, the rule of law, and the peaceful resolution of disputes free from coercion,” Boris said, adding they also reaffirmed their commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific region.
