Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (English: Terminal High led Area Defense, abbreviation: THAAD, thad) is the U.S. missile Defense agency and the U.S. army under the nationalities of land-based theater missile Defense system, generally referred to as thad anti-missile system.
Terminal high altitude area defense system is established on the basis of the after multiple failed in the war zone of high altitude area defense system, the U.S. army in 2004 to redesign the system, and renamed maldives, similar to the navy’s aegis combat system, by referring to tube pass command system, interception system, launch systems, and radar and its support equipment. In October 2007, the terminal high altitude area defense system successfully completed an interception test in the U.S. Pacific missile range.
Terminal high altitude area defense system as specifically designed to deal with mass of ballistic missile attack defense system, its unique advantages in mass missile defense threat at the same time, choose for combat troops to provide more flexible use. Its purpose is not to replace but added the MIM – 104 air defense missiles and navy’s aegis ballistic missile defense system, ground-based midcourse defense system, and the United States in the early warning radar and sensors deployed around the world, making us multi-layer ballistic missile defense ability. On July 8, 2016, the United States and South Korea formally announced the deployment of the thaad missile defense system in South Korea, triggering huge domestic disputes and strong dissatisfaction in the region.
The impact of thaad on China:
Thaad is the only ground system in the world that can intercept ballistic missiles in and out of the atmosphere. Thaad is not only a “shield”, it is more able to absorb intelligence and monitor opponents. The key is, of course, if in the Korean peninsula, “sade” system not only is affected by the north Korea, China and the Russian far east deployment strategy and tactics missile will face the risk of “devaluation” power. In addition to the resulting in a decline in China intercontinental missile threat, the expert analysis, “sade” deployed within the territory of the People’s Republic of Korea, than the deployment of Japan, to the west northward detection range of 300 kilometers, so as to make it easier to monitor the northeast, north China, most of the southeast coastal areas of China. In theory, in the eastern coastal areas of China mobile launched the “dongfeng 21 d”, “east wind – 26” series of anti-ship ballistic missiles at risk “exposure” in advance.
