To protect our nation, deployed forces, and allies against air and missile threats, our groupexamines the current capabilities of and potential near- and long-term technology opportunities for the U.S. ballistic missile and air defense systems.Our staff members analyze all aspects of such systems, including radar, infrared and laser sensors, satellites, and interceptors. We also look at the software and algorithms that enable these systems to search, track, identify, and intercept missiles, and inform decisions about battle management. We assess how adversaries' countermeasures - especially in the form of electronic warfare - would impact U.S. air and missile defense systems. Using these analyses, we propose new technology and architectures that would help improve the nation's defenses against current and emerging threats.
