This is not a defense procurement issue but I have fond memories of working with THAAD ten years ago. The First Unit Equipped (FUE), Alpha Battery/4th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, 11th Air Defense Artillery Brigade, 32nd Army Air & Missile Defense Command, was activated on 28 May. See a press release from Lockheed Martin here. THAAD is the Army’s long range ballistic missile defense system, layering on top of the existing PATRIOT systems.
