As East Asia is entering the 21st Century, Japan, in reassessing its
security environment and thus its strategic calculus, is on the verge of
deploying latest jointly-researched theater missile defenses (TMD) to
counter the threat of ballistic and cruise missiles. In parallel, the
People’s Republic of China is constantly modernizing its ballistic missile
forces and is gearing up for a possible contingency with its
self-proclaimed „high-tech adversaries“. This work shows what drives Japan
to deploy theater missile defenses and how the People’s Republic of China
is poised to be reacting to it.
