Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) is an advanced missile defense system developed by the United States. It is designed to intercept and destroy incoming ballistic missiles in their terminal phase, particularly those with intermediate-range and intercontinental-range capabilities. THAAD uses radar systems and interceptor missiles to track, target, and neutralize enemy missiles, providing a layered defense against potential threats.
