Missiles

The first Panel submitted a report in 2002 (A/57/229). This report was mainly descriptive of the complex situation regarding missiles and did not single out any specific course of action to be pursued. The second Panel will report its findings to this year's General Assembly. In the deliberations of the first Panel, there were significant differences regarding the focus and scope of concern regarding missiles, the difference between vertical and horizontal proliferation, the problem of ballistic missile transfers, the extent of export controls, the use of space for peaceful purposes as a cover for development of ballistic missile technology and the implications of ballistic missile defense. The report addressed some types of missiles, such as Man-Portable Air-Defence Systems (MANPADS) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in the context of terrorist acquisition and use of missiles and rockets.
