ABSTRACT
The article discusses the implications of the change in the U.S. ballistic-missile defense policy announced by the U.S. administration on the Navy. An acceleration of ballistic-missile defense (BMD) capability is include in the new policy. The Navy would likely be required to pay for hull, personnel, and operating costs while the Missile Defense Agency might pay for unique missile-defense design cost.
