ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Conventional Trident modification (CTM) missile program endorsed by the recent Quadrennial Defense Review in the U.S. The U.S. Defense Department had requested $127 million for the programme and only $30 million in research funds were approved. The CTM missiles are developed to destroy specific targets and are also intended to give the submarines a bigger role in combating terrorism.
