  • 'A Good Defense Requires A Good Offense'

    Aug 28, 2009

    The need to stay ahead of the threat on the world stage from rogue nations, political and economic organizations, and non-state actors that include terrorists is driving the U.S. missile defense program as the nation focuses on defending its borders, its allies and its troops, said the commander of the U.S. Strategic Command. Speaking to participants at the 12th annual Space and Missile Defense Conference at the Von Braun Center on Aug. 18, Air Force Gen. Kevin Chilton said the U.S. is operating in a "multi-polar environment with new threats and adversaries that challenge us. It makes us look at offense and defense in a different light." Chilton, a veteran astronaut of three space flights and the first former astronaut to receive four-star rank, is responsible for the global command and control of U.S. strategic forces to meet decisive national security objectives. The Strategic Command provides a broad range of strategic capabilities and options for the president and secretary of defense. STRATCOM mission areas include full-spectrum global strike; space operations; computer network operations; Department of Defense information operations; strategic warning; integrated missile defense, global command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; combating weapons of mass destruction; and specialized expertise to the joint war fighter.
