What is the actual speed of the GBI Booster itself?
Is it the same as the Minuteman III like around 15,000 mph?

I looked all over online, but could not find any performance specs about the GBI bootster itself.

And what about the EKV? I read somewhere it travels like at speeds around 20,000 mph.

If there a more detailed specs on how fast and the flight altitude of both the GBI booster and the EKV?

You are not going to find much information of the GBI on the internet, other than the general publicly released info.
