 U.S. MISSILE DEFENSE AGENCY

The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is a research, development, and acquisition agency within the Department of Defense. Our workforce includes government civilians, military service members, and contractor personnel in multiple locations across the United States. We are focused on retaining and recruiting a dedicated workforce interested in supporting our national security.

As we develop, test, and field an integrated Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), the MDA works closely with the combatant commands (e.g. Pacific Command, Northern Command, etc.) who will rely on the system to protect the United States, our forward deployed forces, and our friends and allies from hostile ballistic missile attack. We work with the combatant commanders to ensure that we develop a robust BMDS technology and development program to address the challenges of an evolving threat. We are also steadily increasing our international cooperation by supporting mutual security interests in missile defense.

The MDA is committed to maximizing the mission assurance and cost effectiveness of our management and operations through continuous process improvement.

DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY/MISSILE AND SPACE INTELLIGENCE CENTER

The Missile and Space Intelligence Center produces comprehensive scientific and technical assessments of foreign weapons systems.

The Defense Intelligence Agency’s Missile and Space Intelligence Center assesses foreign missile and space systems for clients, warfighters, weapons developers, homeland security-intelligence and policymakers. The center uses scientific and technical methods to evaluate all sources of intelligence data to determine foreign weapon characteristics, performance and operations so U.S. and allied forces can triumph in current and future conflicts.

In addition, the center projects future trends in foreign weapons systems’ research and development, characteristics and limitations. It also monitors and reports on foreign developments in applied sciences and technologies that have warfare potential, and alerts Department of Defense planners and decision-makers of any that could adversely affect U.S. national security.
