The Pentagon is expected to release a major review on ballistic missile defense in the coming weeks.

$12.9 billion is requested for ICBM defense in the Pentagon’s 2019 budget proposal.

The White House budget proposal says more funding will go toward the capability and capacity for the U.S. to detect, defeat, and defend against North Korea.

The budget includes over nine billion dollars for the Missile Defense Agency.

It also requests billions more for interceptor missiles, an additional missile field in Alaska, and an increase in deployed interceptors by 2023.
