DoD Starts to Assess U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense Strategy

The Defense Department has kicked off a ballistic missile defense review to comply with an executive order by President Donald Trump.

DoD said Friday the review is part of the department’s efforts to establish a policy and strategy framework for U.S. missile defense systems as well as rebalance homeland and theater defense priorities of the country.

President Trump instructed the department to conduct a 30-day review of the  military’s preparedness for the war against the Islamic State militant group as well as nuclear arsenal and ballistic missile defense programs.

The deputy secretary of defense, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and other interagency partners will lead the assessments.

DoD aims to submit a final report to the president by the end of the year.
