Description
 
The DoD has spent nearly $90 billion since 1985 to develop a Ballistic Missile Defense System, In the next 6 years, the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), the developer, plans to invest about $58 billion more. MDA’s overall goal is to produce a system that is capable of defeating enemy missiles launched from any range during any phase of their flight. MDA’s approach is to field new capabilities in 2-year blocks. The first -- Block 2004 -- was to provide some protection by Dec. 2005 against attacks out of North Korea & the Middle East. This report assesses: (1) MDA’s progress during FY 2005 & (2) whether capabilities met goals. This report identifies reasons for shortfalls & discusses corrective actions that should be taken.
