The Ballistic Missile Defense Evaluation Directorate (BMDED) focuses on the operational test and evaluation of the Missile Defense System (MDS). The BMDED also serves as the lead agency for the MDS Operational Test Team, which provides senior decision makers and operational users with independent assessments of missile defense system lethality, enduring operational capability, and combat survivability.
