Tech Digest Vol.22 Num.3 Cover

Air Defense Part I—Missile Defense
Volume 22, Number 3 (July–September 2001)

This is the first of three Johns Hopkins APL Technical Digest issues devoted to the Air Defense Systems Department (ADSD). This issue outlines the history of the Standard Missile (SM) and the science, technology, and operational requirements that have driven the development of SM variants. Throughout this period and for over 50 years APL has functioned as the Technical Adviser, Technical Direction Agent, and Trusted Agent of the Navy in every major missile development used by Navy surface ships.
