Summary
During fiscal year 2006, MDA fielded additional assets for the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), enhanced the capability of some assets, and realized several noteworthy testing achievements. For example, the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) element successfully conducted its first end-to-end test of one engagement scenario, the element s first successful intercept test since 2002. However, MDA will not meet its original Block 2006 cost, fielding, or performance goals because the agency has revised those goals. In March 2006, MDA: " reduced its goal for fielded assets to provide funds for technical problems and new and increased operations and sustainment requirements; " increased its cost goal by about $1 billion from $19.3 to $20.3 billion; and " reduced its performance goal commensurate with the reduction of assets
