U.S. DoD Missile Programs

For additional information about defense spending, military fleets, DoD Contracts and more, please visit our DoD Spending Page and the Defense Database.

Welcome to the U.S. Missile/Missile Defense Programs page on AeroWeb. This section covers U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) spending on major missile/munitions systems from FY 2012 to FY 2016 (fiscal years starting October 1).

Below, you find DoD budget data for 57 DoD missile, missile defense, and munitions programs, including air-air missiles, air-surface, surface-air missiles, BMD systems and missiles, anti-armor weapons, bombs, rockets and more.

For each program, you can access information about total DoD spending on that program in FY 2012, FY 2013, FY 2014, FY 2015 and FY 2016 as well as the number of missiles/rockets/bombs purchased.

Our data tells you exactly how much was spent on each program, e.g. total spending on the AEGIS Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) System, quantity of MSE/PAC-3 missiles purchased etc. By clicking on a program below, you access that system's profile - giving you access to general information about the missile/weapon system (specs, available aircraft platforms, mission/role etc.) and DoD budget data downloads for each program (so you can see the official spending documentation to verify the accuracy of our data and access even more info).

Note that our data may not in all instances match the numbers in the official DoD Major Acquisition Program Data Book, mainly due to the fact that we also include spending on modifications (to provide a more accurate view of how much is spent on each system). Therefore, we are convinced that the data provided below is more extensive, more accurate and more detailed than what is published by the DoD.

Major DoD Missile Programs | Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD), Air-Air, Air-Surface, Surface-Air...

In Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 (October 1, 2014 - September 30, 2015), the AEGIS BMD program (including SM-3) is the DoD missile/munitions program that received the most funding ($2.11 billion) followed by Trident II D5 ($1.18 billion), and Ground-based Midcourse Defense ($1.08 billion).

Other top missile/munitions programs include THAAD, MSE/PAC-3, Standard Missile SM-2/SM-6, BMD Targets, PAC-3 Patriot, and BMD C2BMC.

In FY 2013, the DoD decided to restructure the Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) program, the replacement for the versatile and widely used AGM-114 Hellfire Missile. which was only allocated $10 million in FY 2013 vs. $232 million in FY 2012. In FY 2015 and FY 2016, funding for JAGM is yet again on the rise ($90 million in FY15 and $143 million in FY16).
