By CDR Thomas Shugart, USN

They reveal satellite imagery of possible  evidence of Chinese testing of ballistic missile capabilities and preemptive strikes, assess – via open-source tools – the capacity of China to defeat U.S. and allied ballistic missile defenses, and provide recommendations on how best to address the threat. This will be presented in conjunction with the release of an associated report delving deeper into the topic.
