The first research on the creation of systems capable of countering ballistic missile strikes in the United States began shortly after the end of World War II. The first projects of the ballistic missile defense system (BR) were initiated by the Air Force Thumper ("Thumper") and Wizard ("Wizard"). Within the framework of the Thumper project, studies were conducted on the possibility of effective interception of V-2-type BRS, a high-speed guided missile was developed within the Wizard, capable of intercepting BRS that surpass the German V-2 in speed and range. In 1958, after the separation of responsibilities between the Air Force, Navy and army command took place in the United States, work on the creation of the Wizard interceptor missile has stopped.
