Missile Defense Agency



About Us

The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is a research, development, and acquisition agency within the Department of Defense. Our workforce includes government civilians, military service members, and contractor personnel in multiple locations across the United States. We are focused on retaining and recruiting a dedicated workforce interested in supporting our national security.

As we develop, test, and field an integrated Missile Defense System, the MDA works closely with the combatant commands who will rely on the system to protect the U.S., our forward deployed forces, and our friends and allies.
