  Aegis combat system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The computer-based command-and-decision element is the core of the Aegis combat system.
The Aegis system is being enhanced to act in a Theater Missile Defense role, to counter short- and medium-range ballistic missiles of the variety typically employed by rogue states (see Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System).
The Aegis system correctly identified and reported flight 655's civilian IFF (identification, friend or foe) number, and that it was only flying at 385 knots airspeed; however the crew of Vincennes misinterpreted this information.

 Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The current effort to deploy Aegis ballistic missile defense capability was kindled in the early 1990s to provide a weapon system vehicle for exploratory testing of LEAP technology being developed by the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization (BMDO).
The initial Aegis combat system success in demonstrating the potential for ballistic missile killing in 2002 may have contributed to President Bush's decision to build an emergency capability to be deployed by late 2004.
While Aegis BMD ships transmit their initial target detection information to the national Ground-Based Midcourse Defense system for potential defense of the US, they can also fire their Standard Missile-3 to provide theater level ballistic missile defense against short and intermediate range tactical ballistic missiles.
