    Peacekeeper Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) The Peacekeeper missile is America's newest intercontinental ballistic missile, and it forms the core of the ICBM modernization program. The first test flight of the Peacekeeper was 17 . The study also found that a new ICBM system would likely cost two to three times as much as incremental modernization and sustainment of the current ICBM system.

      Updating America's Land-Based Ballistic Missile 'Nuclear Sponge' Is A $B+ Waste It's time to cut a leg off America's Cold War vintage nuclear triad and dramatically strengthen the far more Author: Tyler Rogoway. One such modernization initiative is the Small ICBM program, which rests on the belief that a small ICBM would provide greater flexibility in developing basing concepts to enhance ICBM survivability.

    President Donald Trump's defense budget stipulates modernization of the US Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) force, including Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) integrated design and development. The issues surrounding the intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) modernization decision are addressed. Consideration is given to both Rail Garrison MX and the mobile Midgetman system.

The U.S. can afford to modernize its ICBM force. Excessive cost is frequently cited as a reason to delay or reject ICBM modernization. Triad and nuclear C3 modernization costs money, but the programs are clearly affordable given the high priority of nuclear deterrence and the consequences of its failure.

This handbook is a guide to assist requirements officers at HQ SAC/ XPQ as they present this briefing to the public. It contains information on the history of ICBMs, evolution of national defense strategy, arms control, the various basing modes proposed for MX-Peacekeeper, and the rationale for deploying Peacekeeper Rail Garrison and Small ICBMs in hard mobile.

Modernized Strategic Delivery Systems: Existing U.S. nuclear delivery systems are undergoing continual modernization, including complete rebuilds of the Minuteman III ICBM and Trident II SLBM.

The service lives of the Navy’s 14 Trident  Ohio -class ballistic missile submarines are being extended. The latest independent Pentagon acquisition cost estimate to design and build the ICBM replacement ranges from $85 to over $ billion (in then-year dollars), 4 while the cost to operate and sustain the weapons system over its expected year service life is projected at roughly $ billion.

5 This ICBM recapitalization cost is but one piece. The ICBM Systems Directorate is a proud AFMC organization which reports directly to the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center at Kirtland AFB, New Mexico. The ICBM Systems Directorate (NI) is located at Hill AFB, UT and is responsible for acquisition and modernization excellence to sustain the current deployed Minuteman III force.

Any all-new ICBM system will likely cost almost twice (and perhaps even three times) as much as incremental modernization and sustainment of the MM III by: 1. The Department of Defense (DOD) has identified capability requirements and potential basing options for the Minuteman III follow-on intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), and the Department of Energy (DOE) has begun a parallel study of options to extend the life of its warhead, but neither department plans to estimate the total system costs for the new missile.

An intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) is a guided ballistic missile with a minimum range of 5, kilometres (3, mi) primarily designed for nuclear weapons delivery (delivering one or more thermonuclear warheads).Similarly, conventional, chemical, and biological weapons can also be delivered with varying effectiveness, but have never been deployed on ICBMs.

It’s a “piecemeal” modernization program, Harrison said, one which doesn’t require a whole new missile to be developed but which would keep the deterrent somewhat modernized.
