Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense

The Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) System, a part of the Aegis Combat System, is the sea-based component of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). It uses variants of the Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) to intercept short to intermediate-range ballistic missiles during midcourse. The system is integrated on certain U.S. Navy Ticonderoga-class Cruisers (CG) and Arleigh Burke-class Guided Missile Destroyers (DDG). The land-based variant, known as Aegis Ashore, is currently deployed in Deveselu, Romania as part of the NATO missile defense system.
