Clyde S. Smithson III – JHU/APL

Presentation: The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is tasked every year to produce an assessment of the Ballistic Missile Defense System’s (BMDS) capabilities.  MDA verification and assessment activities produce a plan each year to, among other things, define System Performance Assessment activities supporting the evaluation of system capability and report results each year in a System Engineering Assessment Report.  System Performance Assessment of the Operational BMDS means assessing the capability of the system in terms of metrics such as Probability of Engagement Success, Defended Area, Launch Area Denied, Operating Area, and others.  This briefing discusses a more formalized framework and approach to the generation of assessments of BMDS capability.

Location: Applied Physics Laboratory, Johns Hopkins University;
