Missile Defense, the Space Relationship, and the Twenty-first Century
February 21, 2009
The Independent Working Group Report on Missile Defense, the Space Relationship, and the Twenty-first Century provides an assessment of missile defense requirements beyond the limited ground-based system currently being deployed, together with opportunities to benefit from existing and new technological opportunities. More specifically, it is intended to provide a greater understanding of proven technology options that should form the basis for deployment of an innovative missile defense that draws upon the legacy of technologies developed during the Strategic Defense Initiative program of the Reagan administration and the first Bush administration.
The report is avaible online at http://www.ifpa.org/pdf/IWG2009.pdf .
