  1. ESSENCE CHALLENGES FUTURE

  2. BALLISTIC MISSILE CAPABILITY – 1972

  3. BALLISTIC MISSILE CAPABILITY - 2004

  4. 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

  5. Phases of missile’s flight • Boost phase • Midcourse phase • Terminal Phase

  6. Airborne Laser

  7. Phases of missile’s flight • Boost phase • Midcourse phase • Terminal Phase

  8. Ground Based Defense

  9. Emplacing missiles, Calif. and Alaska

  10. Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense

  11. Phases of missile’s flight • Boost phase • Midcourse phase • Terminal Phase

  12. 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.

  13. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense

  14. PATRIOT Advanced Capability-3

  15. Arrow

  16. 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)

  17. 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

  18. Russia’s capabilities VOEVODA (SS-20) “SATAN” TOPOL-M(SS-18)

  19. Russia’s capabilities Anti-aircraft missile system “Favorit” Can hit 36 objectives with 72 missiles

  20. Russia’s capabilities Radiolocating helicopter Ka-31 Can observe 250 000 sq. km within an hour

  21. What will BMD lead to… • STABILITY ? • SECOND COLD WAR ? • …………..?
