reduce the threat posed by weapons of mass destruction (WMD). DTRA 
covers the full range of WMD threats (chemical, biological, nuclear, 
radiological, and high explosive), bridges the gap between the 
warfighters and the technical community, sustains the nuclear deterrent, 
and provides both offensive and defensive technology and operational 
concepts to the warfighters. DTRA reduces the threat of WMD by 
implementing arms control treaties and executing the Cooperative Threat 
Reduction Program. It uses combat support, technology development, and 
chemical-biological defense to deter the use and reduce the impact of 
such weapons. It prepares for future threats by developing the 
technology and concepts needed to counter the new weapons of mass 
destruction threats and adversaries.

The Missile Defense Agency's (MDA) mission is to establish and deploy a 
layered ballistic missile defense system to intercept missiles in all 
phases of their flight and against all ranges of threats. This 
capability will provide a defense of the United States, deployed forces, 
allies, and friends. MDA is under the authority, direction, and control 
of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and 
Logistics. MDA manages and directs the DOD's ballistic missile defense 
acquisition programs and enables the Services to field elements of the 
overall system as soon as practicable. MDA will develop and test 
technologies and, if necessary, use prototype and test assets to provide 
early capability. Additionally, MDA will improve the effectiveness of 
deployed capabilities by implementing new technologies as they become 
available or when the threat warrants an accelerated capability.

strategy of prevention, preparedness, detection, and response to ensure 
that the DOD workforce and facilities in the NCR are secure and 
protected.
