Abstract : Attached is the final report of the DSB/DPB Task Force on Theater Missile Defense (TMD). Significant TMD policy, budget and program initiatives were undertaken during our deliberations, and thus we make no pretense at having kept up with these moving targets. The report, reflecting guidance the Task Force received when we delivered an interim report last year, focuses on four topics: coping with uncertainties about futures paths of the theater missile threat, demarcation between theater and strategic missile defenses, meeting the challenge of developing joint TMD, and lastly, setting priorities for specific TMD programs and projects.
