Expert Says U.S. Missile Defense Program Needs More Funding

Following the missile that hit Poland killing two, a missile defense advocate has shared with Fox News Digital that the U.S. must invest more in its missile defense system to prepare for the growing threat to the nation. Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance founder, Riki Ellison, has come out to discuss where he feels the country needs to step up to meet what he feels is required of the country to maintain defense capabilities. Ellison, who was a former NFL linebacker, stepped into the missile defense realm after working on the second-ever hit-to-kill intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) interceptor system.

Ellison has said that he founded his organization to help support the deployment of missiles and support the evolution of missile defense. Though he says that the budget for the country is just not where it should be to develop the missiles that are necessary. The U.S. Missile Defense Agency, which was developed by the Department of Defense to develop missile defense systems, has a budget of $10 billion a fiscal year which is only about 1.3% of the Defense Department’s budget which Ellison argues is not enough for the program.

Ellison has also argued that the lack of funding will make it difficult to reach the necessary goals and worries it will leave the U.S. vulnerable to other nations.
