DoD Seeks $259M to Speed Up Multi-Object Kill Vehicle Devt

The Defense Department‘s budget request will allocate $259 million to accelerate the development of a kill vehicle for the U.S. military to intercept multiple enemy warheads, Defense One reported Friday.

The budget request will fund a new development phase for the Multi-Object Kill Vehicle and shorten the program’s projected completion date by five years, according to the report.

An unnamed official from the Missile Defense Agency told the publication that MDA seeks to have a demonstrated MOKV platform by 2025 through accelerated risk reduction and product development phases.

The official added the decision is “not in response to any specific intelligence, but to stay ahead of potential future threats,” the report stated.
