And allied military installations in the region. Globally, the Intelligence Community continues to see a progression in development from short- to medium- and in some cases intermediate-range missiles. Development programs reflect increasing ambition in improving payload, range, precision, and operational performance. Those development programs could be helped by the open market that now exists in many of the associated technologies, materials, and expertise. These include the potential for salvo launches and for systems with technologies that enable the penetration of ballistic missile defenses.

S. 81 Considering the current threats from ballistic missiles, potential issues for Congress are whether DOD is expanding BMD programs at an appropriate level, and whether current and planned BMD capabilities are the best and most cost-effective approach for addressing ballistic missile threats. 26 Ian E.

Lawrence Foreign Military Sales The United States has sold to allies several types of BMD capabilities: Aegis tracking software, PAC-2 and PAC-3 batteries, and SM-3 Block IA interceptors (the last to Japan only).

From a technical perspective, the expanded sensor and interceptor coverage of a trilateral C4 network could enhance BMD effectiveness against North Korea by tracking missiles from multiple angles at multiple points in their flight trajectory. However, South Korea might not benefit as much, because it is so close to North Korea that incoming missiles fly on a lower trajectory and could arrive in a matter of a few minutes. To participate in a collective BMD system, Japan likely would need to revise its constitution or issue a re-interpretation of the constitutional limitations on collective self-defense.
