“We do not seek a cold, let alone a hot, war with Russia,’. ‘We do not seek to make Russia an enemy. But make no mistake: The United States will defend our interests and our allies, the principled international order, and the positive future it affords us.”

Of course, neither Russia nor China can overturn that order, given its resilience and staying power. But both present different challenges for it. The United States, and the men and women of the Defense Department, know that the good that a principled international order has done, and will do. But in the face of Russia’s provocations and China’s rise, we must embrace innovative approaches to protect the United States and strengthen that international order.”

Mission Statement

MDAA’s mission is to make the world safer by advocating for the development and deployment of missile defense systems to defend the United States, its armed forces and its allies against missile threats.

MDAA is the only organization in existence whose primary mission is to educate the American public about missile defense issues and to recruit, organize, and mobilize proponents to advocate for the critical need of missile defense. We are a non-partisan membership-based and membership-funded organization that does not advocate on behalf of any specific system, technology, architecture or entity.
