Ballistic and cruise missiles present a significant threat to US and Allied forces overseas, and to the United States and its territories.

Missiles are attractive to many nations because they can be used effectively against an adversary with a formidable air defense system, where an attack with manned aircraft would be impractical or too Size: 3MB.

Cruise missiles and UAVs pose a threat that could affect both U.S. interests abroad and the American homeland. A burgeoning global marketplace of military and commercial products augurs profound challenges for defense planners as they consider plausible and affordable means to detect and defeat these emerging threats to our security.

A cruise missile is a guided missile used against terrestrial targets, that remains in the atmosphere and flies the major portion of its flight path at approximately constant speed. Cruise missiles are designed to deliver a large warhead over long distances with high precision.

Modern cruise missiles are capable of travelling at supersonic or high subsonic speeds, are self-navigating, and are.

The Kettering Bug was an experimental unmanned aerial torpedo, a forerunner of present-day cruise was capable of striking ground targets up to kilometres (75 mi) from its launch point, while traveling at speeds of 80 kilometres per hour (50 mph).

The Bug's costly design and operation inspired Dr. Henry W. Walden to create a rocket that would allow a pilot to control the rocket Designer: Charles Kettering. The NASAMS missile, a ground-launched version of the AIM air-to-air missile, has a price tag of around $,The U.S.
