THAAD will destroy a ballistic missile as it transitions from the midcourse to terminal phase of its trajectory.
A land-based element that has the capability to shoot down a short or medium range ballistic missile in its final stages of flight, both inside and just outside of the atmosphere.
Consists of four principal components: truck-mounted launchers; interceptors; radars; and command, control and battle management (C2BM). System has rapid mobility so that it can be air-lifted to almost anywhere in the world within hours.
All system components fit inside a C-130 aircraft for transport around the world.
