Philip Coyle and James McKeon, two experts at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, write that tactical nukes actually undermine deterrence and hurt US national security “by lowering the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons, making the unthinkable more likely.” With a less intense blast ...
Air defenses generally are only 30 percent effective, according to Philip Coyle, a former weapons-tester for the Pentagon, who told The Daily Beast that cruise missiles are particularly good at outfoxing such systems as they fly below the radar. Russia has largely dismissed the need to punish Assad for the ...

Modern technology available today wouldn't be able to stop such an attack, nor could it defend against missile-deploying warheads at hypersonic speeds, Philip Coyle, a nuclear weapons expert, previously told Live Science's Rafi Letzter. Even so, Gen. Hyten assured the Senate Committee that U.S. ...
“This is really just throwing good money after bad because we already know that they are not effective,” Philip Coyle, a former assistant secretary of defense who headed the Pentagon's test and evaluation office from 1994 to 2001, and a senior fellow at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, told ...
"It was not surprising," said Philip Coyle, a nuclear weapons expert who worked for the Carter, Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations in various capacities related to nuclear policy and is now a senior science fellow at The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation. "When George W. Bush decided ...
In effect, said Philip Coyle of the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, “what that says to Russia is that the United States has a new system that they will have to counter.” Missile defense analyst Tom Karako of the Center for Strategic and International Studies told USNI News he hopes the new ...

Despite this, some countries have tested missiles for trial runs according to Philip Coyle. Philip is a senior science advisor to the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation. They are a nonprofit organization based in Washington D.C.. ICBMs work, as the name suggests, by carrying a payload large ...
As of now, no country has fired an ICBM as an act of war against another country, although some countries have tested these missiles in practice exercises, said Philip Coyle, a senior science adviser with The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, a nonprofit headquartered in Washington, D.C. But ...
“I think that their payload is probably quite small, maybe just some diagnostics instruments to help them know what happened,” says Philip Coyle, senior fellow at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation and former head of the Pentagon's test and evaluation office, about Tuesday's launch. “But a ...
“The fact that North Korea has tested a larger yield nuclear weapon than before is of concern because of the yield of the nuclear weapon, not because of EMP,” says Philip Coyle, a senior science fellow at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, who served as the Assistant Secretary of Defense ...

“I do think it changes the urgency to engage in North Korea,” said Philip Coyle, a former head of weapons testing for the Pentagon who is now at the Center for Arms Control and Nonproliferation in Washington. “Obviously, time is not on our side here, with North Korea doing more missile tests and now six ...
“There are members of the current Congress quite hawkish on space and who see it as the next battleground, and if the Outer Space Treaty could prevent that, I think it would be a very good thing,” says Philip Coyle, a science fellow at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation in Washington.
Philip Coyle, a senior science fellow at the Center for Arms Control and former assistant secretary of defense, told The Cipher Brief North Korea “has advanced its missile programs by devoting a proportionately larger amount of its economy to missile developments and by obtaining technical help from other ...
If anything, over-reliance on missile defenses could impede diplomatic efforts that could avoid a dangerous confrontation," Philip Coyle, who formerly headed the Pentagon's office of operational test and evaluation and is now a senior science fellow at the Arms Control Center, warned in a statement.
Some members of Congress are rightfully calling for reform to the U.S. national missile defense program, but the change they suggest – removing the word “limited” from current U.S. policy – will carelessly expand the program and waste billions of dollars. If we're serious about improving national missile ...
In an interview with The Nevada Independent last week, Philip Coyle, a former test director at the site, predicted that it would lead to an increase in testing around the world. “All hell would break loose,” he said. “It would be a very dangerous time.” Coyle, a board member at the Center for Arms Control and ...
