Abstract
The evolution of ballistic missile defense (BMD) system concepts is summarized, and the potential roles of optics in the future of BMD are outlined. The system motivation and development trends for exoatmospheric cold LWIR sensors are given, and current measurement programs that offer a demonstration of this technology are described. Finally, the potential and requirements for endoatmospheric optics and space based lasers are summarized.
