Organized into four distinct activity areas, the division:

  • Sponsors the Congressional Missile Defense Speaker Series with the National Defense University Foundation. This continuing program brings together members of Congress, senior government officials, and industry and academic leaders to discuss issues that include emerging and current threats to U.S. and regional security, the status of ballistic missile defense programs and the role of missile defense in U.S. defense strategy and policy.
  • Holds monthly executive committee meetings in which senior officials, including leaders of the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency, offer presentations and discussions on current topics.
  • Maintains active committees to manage planning for its annual awards dinner and to develop and/or respond to missile defense issues of national interest.
  • Provides, through the Missile Defense Industry (MDI) Group, a biweekly exchange of information between government representatives, NDIA corporate members, paid MDI Group consultants and others who can assist in maintaining a high level of awareness in planning, budgeting and executing major U.S. missile defense programs. Membership in the MDI Group is by annual subscription to offset consultants’ fees.
