      The Christian Science Monitor is an international news organization that delivers thoughtful, global coverage via its website, weekly magazine, online daily edition, and email newsletters. Missile defense is a system, weapon, or technology involved in the detection, tracking, interception, and destruction of attacking missiles. Originally conceived as a defense against nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), its application has broadened to include shorter-ranged non-nuclear tactical and theater missiles.

      Boost phase. The boost phase is the portion of the flight of a ballistic missile or space vehicle during which the booster and sustainer engines operate until it reaches peak velocity. This phase can take 3 to 4 minutes for a solid rocket (shorter for a liquid-propellant rocket), the altitude at the end of this phase is – km, and the typical burn-out speed is 7 km/s. Airborne Boost-Phase Ballistic Missile Defense 3 The desired speed and mass of the KKV determines the size of the intercep-tor missile and, hence, the feasible launch platforms (satellites, aircraft, ships, or ground-based launchers). ABI speeds around 5 km/sec are desirable for both theater and national missile defense.

Committee on an Assessment of Concepts and Systems for U.S. Boost-Phase Missile Defense in Comparison to Other Alternatives, “Making Sense of Ballistic Missile Defense,” National Research Council, Missile defense technology being developed, tested and deployed by the United States is designed to counter ballistic missiles of all ranges—short, medium, intermediate and long.

Since ballistic missiles have different ranges, speeds, size and performance characteristics, the Ballistic Missile Defense System is an integrated, "layered. Boost-phase intercept (BPI) is like the weather—everybody talks about it but nobody does anything about it. Now that it has become a popular concept, there are many candidates for BPI, some of which would have advantages over the mid-course national missile defense (NMD) system currently under development.

Defense against nuclear attack—so natural and seemingly so compelling a goal—has provoked debate for at least twenty years. Ballistic missle defense systems, formerly called antiballistic missile systems, offer the prospect of remedying both superpowers' alarming vulnerability to nuclear weapons by technological rather than political means.5/5(1).

Intercepting a missile in its boost phase is the ideal solution for a ballistic missile defense. For multiple ballistic missiles with multiple RVs, the region that potentially has the highest defense payoffs is the boost/postboost layer. Boost-phase intercept (BPI) technology can provide an increase in the capabilities of the present U.S.

Ballistic Missile Defense System, especially in the context of the North Korean threat. BPI is attractive for several reasons, but is constrained by the attacking missile’s burn time and the speed of the interceptor.Boost-Phase Intercept (BPI) Ballistic missiles, regardless of their range, are best targeted and countered during their boost-phase.

The ability to intercept a missile while boosting provides a. The Issue. The budget submission represents an inflection point for missile defense programs, the relationship between active defenses and other forms of missile defeat, and the institutional makeup of the missile defense enterprise.; This is the first Trump administration budget submission to make major programmatic changes to missile defense.
