Adversary missile forces represent one of the most pressing threats to the power projection capabilities of the U.S. military. Ballistic, cruise, and air defense missile systems can be used to hold U.S. bases and platforms at risk and deny the U.S. military access to and freedom of action within contested areas. Restoring the United States’ ability to operate within a denied environment requires a high degree of integration among offensive and defense capabilities, from stealthy aircraft that can penetrate enemy air defenses and strike time-sensitive mobile targets to air and missile defense systems that can protect U.S. forces operating in theater. In 2013, the Joint Staff published Integrated Air and Missile Defense: Vision 2020, which laid out a plan to integrate across capabilities and to develop new concepts, tactics, and training.
