WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE -- The National Air and Space Intelligence Center, on behalf of the Defense Intelligence Ballistic Missile Analysis Committee, recently released an unclassified report detailing foreign missile systems.
The “Ballistic and Cruise Missile Threat Report” provides a comprehensive, unclassified overview of foreign ballistic and cruise missiles, both of which present a significant threat to U.S. and allied forces overseas, and to the U.S. homeland and territories.
“With their relatively low operating costs, potential to penetrate defense systems, and value as a symbol of national power, ballistic and cruise missiles will continue to be the offensive weapons of choice for many nations,” says the report. “As such, they are threats that must be carefully considered in future military planning and operations.”
The 40-page report is updated and re-released by the DIBMAC every few years. The DIBMAC is comprised of representatives from NASIC, the Missile and Space Intelligence Center, the Office of Naval Intelligence, the National Ground Intelligence Center, United States Strategic Command and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.
NASIC’s mission is to discover and characterize air, space, missile and cyber threats to enable full-spectrum multi-domain operations, drive weapon system acquisition, and inform national defense policy.
