The presentation entitled "U.S. Missile Defense: Shifting Strategic Landscape and Implications for Policy, Technology & Capabilities" will examine the root of contemporary American BMD policy, programs and deployments including its evolution over the past 15 years. Following this, the presentation will turn to a discussion/examination of the major missile threat and missile defense developments that are underway which may compel the U.S. to reframe its current BMD policies and strategies. This will likely be on the agenda when the new Administration takes office in 2017 and begins to review major components of the American defense posture.
