Russia is set to develop a sea-based missile defense program similar to the U.S. Aegis system, a senior defense industry official said on Friday.

Aegis, designed to intercept ballistic missiles at the post-boost phase and prior to reentry, is part of the U.S. national missile defense strategy.

“This task has been assigned to [the defense] industry,” said Anatoly Shlemov, head of the state defense contracts department at the United Shipbuilding Corporation.

Aegis analogs are being developed at companies affiliated with PVO Almaz-Antei [an air defense concern],” he said.

He declined to elaborate citing the classified nature of the topic.
