Abstract : The Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) program is structured to respond to existing and emerging ballistic missile threats around the world. The program focuses its highest efforts on acquisition programs designed to defend against the ballistic missile threat that is "here and now," namely theater-class ballistic missiles. However, the program is developing Theater Missile Defense (TMD) systems that address the growing threat of longer-range ballistic missiles in both theater and strategic classes. The program continues to invest in the BMD technology base in order to enhance future BMD systems for both TMD and National Missile Defense (NMD) applications.
