Ballistic Missile Defense in the Context of Strategic Stability

 

Statement of Task

An ad hoc committee, working jointly with a committee of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), will conduct a technical examination of missile defense systems planned for deployment and the threats that they are intended to counter in the context of strategic stability. The joint committees will examine both the technical implications of planned missile defense deployments for Russian and U.S. strategic deterrents and the benefits and disadvantages of a range of options for cooperation on missile defense. The range of options will include (a) no cooperation between independent, unconnected, and uncoordinated missile defense systems following existing plans, (b) independent but joined systems, linked through, for example, a joint data and monitoring center and a joint planning center, and (c) a joint missile defense system, including mutually beneficial, jointly developed capabilities to counter missile threats. The joint committees will issue a single consensus report to be published in English and translated into Russian.
