      Ballistic Missile Defense—Past and Future • ix answer to these two questions is irrelevant with regard to tactical ballistic missiles or cruise missiles. With the widespread proliferation of these tactical offensive weapons, there is multinational agreement on the need for the development and deployment of tactical anti-missile systems. The Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System (Aegis BMD or ABMD) is a United States Department of Defense Missile Defense Agency program developed to provide missile defense against short to intermediate-range ballistic is part of the United States national missile defense strategy. Aegis BMD (also known as Sea-Based Midcourse) is designed to intercept ballistic missiles post .

      The Strategic Defense Initiative to develop a ballistic missile defense (BMD) system has short- and long-range risks as well as potential benefits. For the most part, however, strategic, technological, and political issues relevant to SDI have been analyzed in isolation from one another. The upgrade to its theatre missile defense command and control system will allow for NATO to connect national sensors and interceptors in defense against short and medium-range ballistic missiles. According to NATO's Assistant Secretary General for Defense Investment Patrick Auroy, the execution of this contract will be a major technical milestone forward for NATO's theatre missile defense.

        Offensive ballistic missile technology is far more mature than that of missile defense, and cost considerations favor the offense. Adding fourteen more GMD interceptors by . The U.S. Missile Defense Agency might break up a development and sustainment contract for its Ground-Based Midcourse Defense system long held by Boeing in order drive up competition.
