Army Needs Mobile, Flexible Air and Missile Defense
Tuesday, March 12, 2019

The Army is taking big steps toward having critical new air and missile defense capabilities, with an eye on a collection of interconnected systems that provide scalable, mobile and revolutionary protection against current and future threats.

No single system will be able to accomplish what the Army and the nation need, the commander of the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command said March 12 during a one-day event hosted by the Association of the U.S. Army’s Institute of Land Warfare.

Moving forward is important. “We understand that our potential adversaries have made technological advances in nearly every capability in the past few decades,” said Lt. Gen. James H. Dickinson, who also commands Army Forces Strategic Command. “China, Russia and other competitors are working every day to develop and field air and missile defense capabilities with greater mobility, range, speed and precision.”
“A society does not ever die ‘from natural causes’, but always dies from suicide or murder – and nearly always from the former….”
