President Donald Trump will visit the Pentagon on Thursday to announce the results of the Defense Department's long-anticipated review of its ability to protect the homeland and forces overseas from missile attacks, senior administration officials said Wednesday.
President Donald Trump's statement that the goal of U.S. missile defenses was to detect and destroy any missile launched against the United States anywhere would be costly, unachievable and destabilizing, the ACA added.
Trump said a new strategy would include a "space-based defense layer of new technologies, such as sensors that could detect, track, and destroy incoming enemy missiles".
The U.S. boosted missile defense spending in the current fiscal year about 25 percent to $9.9 billion, spurred by Trump and lawmakers amid concerns over North Korea's ballistic missile and nuclear programs.
The Trump administration is unveiling its new strategy to protect the US and it allies from missile threats. The U.S. military could also take some of the Aegis missile defense test systems in Hawaii and make them operational to better protect the state.
The new strategy is aimed at better defending the USA against potential adversaries, such as Russian Federation and China, who have been developing and fielding a much more expansive range of advanced offensive missiles that could threaten America and its allies. "And their families and our Armed Forces should know, their sacrifice will only steel our resolve that as we begin to bring our troops home, we will do so in a way that ensures that the remnants of ISIS will never be able to reestablish their evil and murderous caliphate".
The F-35 fighter jet in the future could be fastened with an interceptor capable of shooting down North Korean missiles.
A senior administration official speaking to reporters on the condition of anonymity that while that a space-based layer of satellite sensors "is something we're looking at to help give early warning tracking", the review stopped short of calling for the deployment of interceptors in space.
The release of the strategy was postponed a year ago for unexplained reasons, although it came as Mr. Trump was trying to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons.
In addition to a space focus, the MDR breaks down the threat into two camps: protecting the USA homeland and defending US forces overseas from any missile source.
"While a possible new avenue to peace now exists with North Korea, it continues to pose an extraordinary threat and the U.S. must remain vigilant", the review said.
"It would be incredibly costly", says Laura Grego, a physicist at the Union of Concerned Scientists who tracks missile defense programs. There are already 44 such interceptors deployed at the Fort Greely U.S. base in Alaska.
China has also alarmed the Pentagon with advances in super-fast "hypersonic" technology that could allow Beijing to field missiles that are far harder to detect.
Trump said the new emerging Space Force military service will lead the way in dealing with the new reality that space has become a warfighting domain.
"China is also developing increasingly sophisticated ballistic missile warheads and hypersonic glide vehicles in an attempt to counter ballistic missile defence systems".
President Donald Trump's promise to be "far worse than anybody, if need be" by developing space weapon tech "faster than the rest of the world" will spark a new arms race without ensuring U.S. safety, says leading Russian expert.
The document was even stronger. At the same time, without any existing arms control agreements regarding the deployment of conventional weapons in space, and with potential opponents, such as Russian Federation and China, developing more robust anti-satellite capabilities, it's easy to see how it could provoke an arms race.
