Strategic Deterrence

Mission Area

Strategic Deterrence

Building on six decades of vital contributions to the U.S. Navy’s Fleet Ballistic Missile program, Johns Hopkins APL’s Strategic Deterrence Mission Area is transforming strategic systems from their legacy nuclear mission to a broad set of responses to current and future national security challenges. 

We demonstrate expertise in system development, testing, and evaluation for the SSBN mission and are applying that knowledge to the critical, newly expanded roles of strategic systems in our nation’s defense.
