New defence missiles stateries by United States
My Times Today.US President Donald Trump is due to unveil a revamped US missile defense strategy on Thursday that looks at ways to boost America`s security, including by possibly deploying a new layer of space-based sensors to detect and track enemy missiles.
The Missile Defense Review will also recommends studying experimental technologies, including prospects for space-based weaponry that might be able to shoot down enemy missiles — a throwback to Ronald Reagan`s so-called “Star Wars” initiative in the 1980s.
“Space, I think, is the key to the next step of missile defense,” a senior Trump administration official told reporters ahead of the document`s release on Thursday, speaking on condition of anonymity. “A space-based layer of sensors is something we are looking at to help get early warning and tracking and discrimination of missiles when they are launched.”
