Ballistic Missile Basics Ballistic missiles are powered by rockets initially but then they follow an unpowered, free-falling trajectory toward their targets. They are classified by the maximum distance that they can travel, which is a function of how powerful the missile’s engines (rockets) are and the weight of the missile’s payload.

Ballistic missle defense systems, formerly called antiballistic missile systems, offer the prospect of remedying both superpowers' alarming vulnerability to nuclear weapons by technological rather than political means.

But whether ballistic missile defenses can be made to work and whether it is wise to build them remain by: This book provides a historical account of one of the key weapons developments of the nuclear age.

By examining the United States Fleet Ballistic Missile program from Polaris in the s to Trident II in the s, Graham Spinardi is able to examine in detail the complex relationship between the advance of technology and the pace of the arms by: About the Author.

Jeffrey A. Isaacson (MIT PhD Theoretical Physics) is a senior physical scientist at Rand whose research interests include ballistic missile defense, conventional weapons proliferation, and longrange planning.

David R. Vaughan Cited by: 9. The book's message (and rightly so) is: one cannot deal with the IRGC's nuclear program without dealing with its missile program. The Iranian regime is working on its intercontinental ballistic missile program (ICBM).

Such missiles are used to deliver nuclear weapons.5/5(5). About the book Description Ballistic Missile and Space Technology, Volume II: Propulsion and Auxiliary Power Systems focuses on the exchange of technical information and ideas among engineers and scientists working on ballistic missile and space programs, including hypersonics, aerodynamic heating, material structures, propulsion, communications, computers, and.

Defense against nuclear attack—so natural and seemingly so compelling a goal—has provoked debate for at least twenty years.

Following World War II, the onset of nuclear weapons, long-range jet bombers, and ballistic missiles radically changed American foreign policy and military strategy. In The Bomb and America’s Missile Age, Christopher Gainor explores the US Air Force’s (USAF) decision, in Marchto build the Atlas, America’s first ICBM.

Beginning with the story of the guided missiles that were created before and during World War II, Gainor describes how the early Soviet and American rocket programs evolved over the course of the following decade.5/5(2).

A ballistic missile follows a ballistic trajectory to deliver one or more warheads on a predetermined target. These weapons are guided only during relatively brief periods—most of the flight is unpowered. Short-range ballistic missiles stay within the Earth's atmosphere, while intercontinental ballistic missiles are launched on a sub-orbital trajectory.

These weapons are in a distinct category from cruise missiles. Summary.

Ballistic Missile Defense Technologies September NTIS order #PB   The Scud missile was developed as the centerpiece of Soviet plans to fight nuclear war in the heart of Europe. However, it was never used in its intended role and has instead become a symbol of the changing nature of warfare in the aftermath of the Cold War.

Saddam Hussein's Iraqi armed forces were almost helpless in the face of the Coalition forces. Tactical ballistic missiles are usually mobile to ensure survivability and quick deployment, as well as carrying a variety of warheads to target enemy facilities, assembly areas, artillery, and other targets behind the front lines.

Warheads can include conventional high explosive, chemical, biological, or nuclear warheads. The German A-4 ballistic missile, better known by its propaganda name of V-2, was the world's first successful ballistic missile, breaking through the atmosphere to reach its target quicker.

It was a forerunner of Cold War ballistic missiles and its combat use in set the pattern for the use of Scud ballistic missiles in recent decades/5. Ballistic missiles have a number of distinct characteristics that make them a particularly attractive weapon for developing nations.

Compared to other delivery systems, ballistic missiles are many times faster than a manned aircraft, have much shorter flight time to the target and are thus, more likely to penetrate an enemies defenses.
