Theater Ballistic Missile Defense, Volume 192
Ben-Zion Naveh, Azriel Lorber
American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Jan 1, 2001 - Medical - 397 pages
The biggest single increase in the U.S. defense budget request for modernization spending over the next six years is for ballistic missile defense, including theater and national systems. Engineers, managers, and policy makers will need to stay abreast of the ever-changing state of the art in theater ballistic missile defense.
Very few books in the market cover the special technical and design issues involved in the development of a ballistic missile defense system. Drs. Naveh and Lorber pull together 40 years of experience in Israeli theater missile defense activities and provide in this single volume those special issues, state-of-the-design considerations, technologies, and procedures related to the theater ballistic missile defense arena.
