Japan’s Missile Defense Policies and Programs

In this Policy Outlook, Marshall Institute Research Assistant Karen Montague traces the emergence and maturation of Japan’s interest in ballistic missile defense.  Montague’s piece documents the depth of the U.S.-Japan partnership to co-develop sea-based defenses as well as Japanese purchases of other elements of the U.S. defensive architecture.

The piece is the second in a series of country specific looks at foreign interest in missile defense.  Montague had previously published an assessment of South Korea’s BMD programs and policies.
