Other Missile Tests

The Missile Defense Agency conducts regular intercept flight tests to verify performance and confirm the technological progress of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). The Agency also conducts regular, rigorous non-intercept tests, including sensor characterization flight tests, ground tests, and wargame exercises. Testing to date has given us confidence in the basic design, effectiveness, and operational capability for short-, medium-, and long-range ballistic missile defense.
