Until the day arrives when UAVs roam the stratosphere swatting ascending BMs with lasers, they apparently can help extend the reach of AEGIS ships on station in some convenient patch of water.

Early Intercept

By leveraging Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and space assets for pervasive over-the-horizon Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) image.sensor netting, the engagement zone of current Standard Missile-3 interceptors can be extended to the pre-apogee portion of a missile's trajectory...

yep, as I've said before, they are flying comms bearers as a single platform - as a hive they become a virtual array

(similar to what I've said about F35 advances - the difference being that the larger they get the greater persistence and potential projection)

so, if you extrapolate that to the potential for Locust type UAS to be launched from sonarbuoy tubes etc... then the ability for ASW aircraft to launch array nets in support of land or sea support becomes significant

then there are the developments where UAS have been launched out of "howitzers"

its an instant battlefield array/net

Surprising editorial in the "Toronto Star" suggesting it is time to revisit BMD. This publication is the rag of choice for Liberals, socialists, the politically correct, and other assorted malcontents. Not surprisingly, junior is quoted as not being interested.

I cited this article in the UAS thread but it also rightly belongs here. BPI offers significant advantages in that BMs are most vulnerable and easily detected while ascending on a highly visible plume of flame and before they can deploy warhead(s) and decoys. A UAS-based system can integrate into AEGIS to cue SM-3 interceptors or directly address the threat if equipped with a suitable AAM.
