Languages of publication
During the last few decades the issue of the proliferation of the ballistic missile systems is becoming an increasing problem. This type of weapon system is not only efficient on the battlefield but also has a role as an instrument of deterrence. Therefore the defence against this threat is a very important factor, carefully considered by many governments within their military and security policies. This article refers to the evolution of the US missile defence systems that evolved during the Cold War together with the broader background changes in the international security environment of the time. The analysis of this process should underline the complexity of technological, political and economic factors that influence the development of missile defence as a tool of security policy in our times too.
