  5. High Speed Missile to Missile Communications

    SBC: CesiumAstro Inc.            Topic: MDA17001

    Missile-to-missile high speed communication can greatly enhance the operational effectiveness of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) of the United States.Currently, information from the first interceptor is sent to the launch control and then from the launch control to the second interceptor. The round-trip signal latency decreases the likelihood of successful interception. The approach pr ...
