Annotation
The article is about prospects of the U.S. missile defense development during the Trump administration. The release of Missile Defense Review 2018 was delayed repeatedly. Nevertheless FY 2019 Budget Request and officials’ statements during spring 2018 Congressional hearings allow us to detect, which NDAA 2018 recommendations are going to be implemented, and which are not getting considerable support at the Pentagon. It seems that definition of missile threats to the U.S., its forces and allies would be adjusted. Some changes would also be performed in missile defense architecture, and its status. Significance of missile defense cooperation with allies might be revised, and some new decisions regarding Missile Defense Agency are possibly to be taken.
