Ballistic Missle Defense: DoD Needs to Address Planning and Implementation Challenges for Future Capabilities in Europe
DIANE Publishing, 2011 - 62 pages
In Sept. 2009, the President announced a revised approach for ballistic missile defense (BMD) in Europe. The European Phased Adaptive Approach (EPAA) is designed to defend against existing and near-term ballistic missile threats and build up defenses over four phases as threats mature and new BMD technologies become available. EPAA is DoD's first implementation of its new, regional approach to BMD. This report evaluated DoD's plans for implementing EPAA. It reviewed the extent to which: (1) DoD has developed guidance and addressed management of cost and schedule for EPAA; and (2) DoD planning for EPAA is informed by operational performance data. Includes recommendations. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.
