A Discussion on the 2019 Missile Defense Review

Rebeccah L. Heinrichs

On January 17, the Department of Defense released its long-awaited Missile Defense Review (“MDR”), which outlines a roadmap for U.S. missile defense policy, strategy, and programs. Framed as a response to a “threat environment that is markedly more dangerous than in past years,” the MDR lays out a vision for “a concerted U.S. effort to improve existing capabilities for both homeland and regional missile defense.”

On January 29, James H. Anderson—assistant secretary of defense for strategy, plans, and capabilities—delivered a keynote at the Brookings Institution on the MDR and its significance for U.S. defense policy. Then, Rebeccah Heinrichs joined a panel of experts to discuss the MDR’s policy, strategic, and budgetary implications.
