BALLISTIC MISSILE

CAPABILITY – 1972

missile defense priorities
Missile Defense priorities:
  • To defend the United States, deployed forces, allies, and friends
  • To employ a BMD layers of defenses to intercept ballistic missiles in all phases of their flight
  • To enable early fielding for elements of the BMD
  • To develop and test technologies and, if necessary, use prototype and test assets to provide early capability
phases of missile s flight
Phases of missile’s flight
  • Boost phase
  • Midcourse phase
  • Terminal Phase
phases of missile s flight1
Phases of missile’s flight
  • Boost phase

phases of missile s flight2
Phases of missile’s flight
  • Boost phase
  • Midcourse phase
  • Terminal Phase
the primary elements in the terminal defense segment
The primary elements in the Terminal Defense Segment:
  • Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD)
  • PATRIOT Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3)
  • Arrow, a joint effort between the U.S. and Israel
  • Medium Extended Air Defense System (MEADS), a co-developmental program with Germany and Italy.
what is planned
What is planned:

Boost

  • Airborne Laser: air testing of the high-energy laser and a successful track and engagement of a target by the laser

Midcourse

  • Ground-based Midcourse Defense: 18 total Ground-based Interceptors, with 2 at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. and 16 at Ft. Greely, Alaska.
  • Aegis: 10 sea-based Surveillance and Track Destroyers, 2 Engagement/Surveillance and Track Cruisers, 8 Standard Missile-3 sea-based interceptors

Terminal

  • THAAD: radar and missile flight tests against short and medium range targets
  • 281 Patriot Advanced Capablility-3 missiles (operated by the U.S. Army)
challenges in bmd
Challenges in BMD
  • Boost phase is very short and requires quick reaction and a means of destroying the missile
  • Midcourse phase is generally the longest phase, but a successful midcourse intercept is complicated since the Reentry Vehicle will be surrounded by booster debris and potential countermeasures
  • Terminal intercept requires an advanced interceptor capable of countering any maneuvers the RV may make
