    2019 Missile Defense Review

    https://www.defense.gov/Portals/1/Interactive/2018/11-2019-Missile-Defense-Review/The 2019 MDR_Executive Summary.pdf

    As rogue state missile arsenals develop, the space-basing of interceptors may provide the opportunity to engage offensive missiles in their most vulnerable initial boost phase of flight, before they can deploy various countermeasures. Space-basing may increase the overall likelihood of successfully intercepting offensive missiles, reduce the number of U.S. defensive interceptors required to do so, and potentially destroy offensive missiles over the attacker’s territory rather than the targeted state. DoD will undertake a new and near-term examination of the concepts and technology for space-based defenses to assess the technological and operational potential of space-basing in the evolving security environment.
    The space-basing of interceptors also may provide significant advantages, particularly for boost-phase defense. As directed by Congress, DoD will identify the most promising technologies, and estimated schedule, cost, and personnel requirements for a possible spacebased defensive layer that achieves an early operational capability for boost-phase defense.

      It was only a matter of time before the US designed a counter to Putin's invincible missile. Look's like we are headed for Star Wars 2.
