A potential in development answer to AShBM and hypersonics?
The US Navy quietly tested several hypersonic missiles but all in incubator i.e. in development. The pace of testing suggests that it's highly likely that the US Navy will induct hypersonic missiles, next generation EW and laser weapons soon.

Sailors assigned to Coastal Riverine Squadron 1 drive their 34-foot Dauntless class patrol boat to rendezvous with the guided-missile destroyer Forrest Sherman on Nov. 17 in the Gulf of Tadjoura.

WASHINGTON — A Navy warship has seized a “significant cache” of suspected Iranian guided missile parts headed to rebels in Yemen, U.S. officials said Wednesday, marking the first time that such sophisticated components have been taken en route to the war there.

The seizure from a small boat by the U.S. Navy and a U.S. Coast Guard boarding team happened last Wednesday in the northern Arabian Sea, and the weapons have been linked to Iran.

Officials said the incident illustrates the continuing illegal smuggling of weapons to Houthi rebels and comes as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were meeting, with Iran as the main topic.
