dc.description.abstractThe United States, Russia, and China are reportedly developing Hyper-Glide (HG) missile systems that are high speed, non-ballistic, long-range delivery vehicles. Able to maneuver and evade missile and air defense systems, the speed and accuracy of these systems would enable them to hold high value and hardened targets at risk, replicating and replacing nuclear weapon systems. The project will assess the implications of HG missile systems and their capabilities for the deterrent relationship between the United States, Russia, and China. With the potential reduced reliance on nuclear systems and declines in nuclear arsenals, there are both positive and negative implications for strategic stability, deterrence, and the arms reduction process.en_US
