Challenges for the Biden administration: Addressing the evolving air and missile threat

Past Event

Over the last decade, air and missile threats to the United States and its allies have changed dramatically. Ten years ago, ballistic missiles were the main challenge the U.S. faced in its air defense. Today, with advanced technologies, air defense is more complex, and the U.S. is facing threats that have expanded drastically and includes new capabilities like drones, rockets, and hypersonic weapons.

The incoming Biden administration has a whole host of issues to address after inauguration on January 20, including air and missile threats. How should the United States and its allies respond?

On Wednesday, January 27, the Foreign Policy program at Brookings hosted a panel discussion with experts on these issues.

Viewers submitted questions by emailing events@brookings.edu or via Twitter at #SecurityStrategyTech.
