This project, prepared for the Union of Concerned Scientists, is a case study of the development of the Iraqi missile program, which can serve as a case study for the acquisition of arms technology by third world countries. Working from the reports and press releases of the United Nations Security Council and other related literature, we investigate the development of the technology used to design and build ballistic missiles, paying close attention to the individual components in the design. Based upon this data, we define what level of technology Iraq has reached and what methods it has used to achieve this technology. We use this case study to suggest methods by which to prevent the acquisition of this technology by other third world countries.
