During this time of heightened risk of conflict, the United States must continue to pursue regional missile defense for its own security.

Not missile defense. The current system—begun by the Bush administration in a post-9/11 security environment—was exempted from many of the normal, routine, and important requirements.

As a result, nearly all of the GMD’s interceptors were fielded before a single missile. Recall Clinton Defense Secretary William Perry’s dismissal that there was never a need for missile defense to deter a rogue nation like North Korea: “We do not need a national missile defense system because no rogue nation has ICBMs and if these powers should ever pose a threat, our ability to retaliate with an overwhelming.

As the Navy’s component of the missile defense system, the Aegis system is central to the defense footprint in Asia and the Phased Adaptive Approach to missile defense in Europe. Aegis is a sea-based system, with missile launchers and radars mounted on cruisers and destroyers but is adaptable to land systems as well.

In American Missile Defense: A Guide to the Issues Victoria Samson brings a decade of experience to bear in an in-depth examination of missile defense as it has been envisioned and as it is actually being developed, clarifying misconceptions and laying out what a missile defense system can and cannot do.1/5(1).

Missile defense is a system, weapon, or technology involved in the detection, tracking, interception, and destruction of attacking missiles.

Originally conceived as a defense against nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missiles, its application has broadened to include shorter-ranged non-nuclear tactical and theater missiles. The United States, Russia, China, India, Israel, France, and Taiwan have all developed such air defense systems.

Passed by Congress, the Missile Defense Act mandated that the United States deploy “as soon as is technologically possible” a missile defense system that can defend the homeland from limited ballistic missile attack—either accidental, unauthorized, or deliberate.

The United States and the Soviet Union came to a shared belief, enshrined in the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, that unrestrained missile defense. The development of a good missile defense system is a bit of a double-edged sword. It is the next great game-changer of military technology, but if it even has a 99% success rate, then the tactic to counter it is to build more and more nukes so that even that 1% miss rate would statistically be enough to wipe out the target country.

Missile defense basics. ICBM launches have three distinct phases of flight. During the boost phase, a rocket launches the warhead at high speeds above the atmosphere, where it continues in free-fall through the vacuum of midcourse phase begins with the rocket separating from the warhead, which continues unguided and unpowered, hundreds of miles above the Earth.

According to its supporters, such a system would provide a sort of protective shield against a limited missile attack. Inthe U.S. Congress decided that the time for talk was over -- they passed a bill calling for the implementation of the NMD system to defend the Author: Kevin Bonsor.
