China conducted a successful ballistic missile defense (BMD) test in 2010 and again in January 2013 and is at least keeping the option open to deploy BMD. But it is unclear which way Beijing may go. This becomes a more urgent issue for consideration as China continues its military and economic rise and faces the upcoming Indian deployment of Agni-5 ballistic missiles. FAS will assess the possible incentives and disincentives that China may have to deploy some version of its recently tested missile defense system, the weight China may attach to these factors, how that would affect China’s security policy, and possible security implications for the United States.
