‼️ New thread of BMD & IAMD threads ‼️

Over the time I have written a number of different threads on various BMD and IAMD topics, that newer followers might not have seen.

So, as a service, this thread pulls them all together.

I will try to keep this thread up to date.
This thread explains the need for detailed and accurate planning in BMD.

It also explains the benefit of having forward based sensors that can provide early detection and cueing in support of rearward systems.

This is a personal favorite of mine, that explains:
1) What is Launch and Engage on Remote,
2) Why is it needed, and
3) What are the operational benefits, when it comes to defended area.

Want to understand why an interceptor has capabilities against threats it was not originally designed against, e.g. the SM-3 Block IIA taking on ICBM class threats?

Well look no further than this thread.

This thread explains why intercepting lofted missiles is much more challenging than missiles on minimum energy trajectories.

This thread explains how the exo-atmospheric kill vehicles, such as the SM-3 KW moves and orients during the final stage of an intercept.

This is another personal favorite of mine: That Mk 41 Vertical Launch System that sits in US Navy destroyers, cruisers and Aegis Ashore, as well a several non-US navy ships? This is how it works and what it can and cannot do.

This is a short thread with some descriptions of a few western systems capable of drone defense, cruise missile defense or IAMD.

This is a rather interesting conversation on DPRK missiles vs. PATRIOT/THAAD that started out between me and @Joshua_Pollack but soon had @ferencdv, @tomkarako and @EllemanIISS join in.

Burn out velocity of an interceptor really doesn't get me all hot and bothered.

Want to know why? Read this thread.

This is me talking to @SeapowerMag about the IAMD ambitions of the Danish navy.
