        Efficacy of Ballistic Missile Defence. Given the evolving nuclear scenario, India opted to develop a Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) system. On , the DRDO announced that a ‘missile defence shield’ has been developed and can be put in . Ballistic missile defence is not a new issue for the alliance. It first emerged in the mids in response to the American debate on anti-ballistic missile systems. This first debate peaked in the context of Secretary of Defence (SoD) McNamara’s September, 18th, .

        The engagement envelope of the U.S. ground-based midcourse defense (GMD) system will extend protection over portions of Western Europe from certain longer-range ballistic missile threats. Germany and the Netherlands already have invested in the U.S. Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3), the latest U.S. air defense system, which is capable of. A fully effective Ballistic Missile Defence is a complex system incorporating state-of-the-art technologies. The United States has been working on Ballistic Missile Defence since The Soviet Union began development of a BMD System somewhere in but it was only in when Soviet “Galosh” anti-ballistic missile (ABM) system got.
