FUTURE


BALLISTIC MISSILE

CAPABILITY – 1972


BALLISTIC MISSILE CAPABILITY - 2004


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

  • Boost phase

  • Midcourse phase

  • Terminal Phase


Airborne Laser


Phases of missile’s flight

  • Boost phase

  • Midcourse phase

  • Terminal Phase


Ground Based Defense


Emplacing missiles, Calif. and Alaska


Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense


Phases of missile’s flight

  • Boost phase

  • Midcourse phase

  • Terminal Phase


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.


Terminal High Altitude Area Defense


PATRIOT Advanced Capability-3


Arrow


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

  • 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


Russia’s capabilities

VOEVODA (SS-20) “SATAN”

TOPOL-M(SS-18)


Russia’s capabilities

Anti-aircraft missile system “Favorit”

Can hit 36 objectives with 72 missiles


Russia’s capabilities

Radiolocating helicopter Ka-31

Can observe 250 000 sq. km within an hour


What will BMD lead to…

  • STABILITY ?

  • SECOND COLD WAR ?
