The Missile Defense Agency's program is structured to respond to existing and emerging ballistic missile threats to the United States, its forward deployed forces, allies, and friends around the world. The funding for the BMD Program is submitted each year in the President's Budget. The MDA's Director and staff testify before the congressional defense committees to explain the status of the BMD programs and to justify the organization's funding. The BMD Public Statement Section provides you with transcripts of senior defense official's briefings on BMD issues to Congress and other forums.
