THAAD:
Another Program ETI Units Support


Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), formerly Theater High Altitude Area Defense, is an American anti-ballistic missile defense system designed to shoot down short-, medium-, and intermediate-range ballistic missiles in their terminal, descent or reentry, phase by intercepting with a hit-to-kill approach. THAAD was developed after the experience of Iraq's Scud missile attacks during the Gulf War in 1991. The THAAD interceptors carry no warheads, but rely instead on their kinetic energy of impact to destroy incoming missiles. A kinetic energy hit minimizes the risk of exploding conventional-warhead ballistic missiles, and the warhead of nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles will not detonate upon a kinetic-energy hit.

This program features a design that supports mobility, reliability and maintainability within weight limits to ensure tactical transport to and from the battlefield.
