The U.S. Army has proposed $5.1 billion in fiscal 2019 funds to procure missile systems, up from the service branch’s $3.9 billion fiscal 2018 request for missile procurement efforts, Military.com reported Wednesday.

Davis Welch, deputy director of budget at the Army, told Military.com the service branch plans to spend $1.1 billion on Missile Segment Enhancement interceptors and launcher modification kits.
