Penaid nonproliferation: hindering the spread of countermeasures against ballistic missile defenses

Speier, Richard, author; McMahon, K. Scott, author; Nacouzi, George, author

An attacker's missile-borne countermeasures to ballistic missile defenses are known as penetration aids, or penaids. To support efforts to prevent the proliferation of penaid-related items, this research recommends controls on potential exports according to the structure of the international Missile Technology Control Regime
