MDA Interested In Antiaircraft Potential Of Aegis Ashore
The U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA) wants to see how the Aegis Ashore missile shield would handle antiaircraft missions, says James Sheridan, director of U.S. Navy Aegis programs for Lockheed Martin, prime contractor for the combat system.
There is some discussion of antiaircraft warfare (AAW) capability for Aegis Ashore, Sheridan said April 6 during a media briefing in advance of this week’s annual Navy League Sea Air Space conference and symposium.
“The MDA is asking for some studies,” Sheridan says.
