Apart from having flashbacks to the 1980ies (didn't they do all that before?), I also have questions.

1. What exactly is an "ICBM target"? Possibly something larger than a re-entry vehicle1) from a MIRV bus? Like maybe a complete nose cone or upper stage?

2. How do we get The Bad GuysTM to put beacons in their kit that provide target acquisition and tracking data for us?

1) Cutest alternative name for "nuclear warhead" ever.
