What is the Strategic Defense Initiative?

    The Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), also known as “Star Wars,” was a proposed missile defense system announced by U.S. President Ronald Reagan in 1983. The initiative aimed to develop a space-based defense system to protect the United States from potential nuclear missile attacks. Although the full system was never implemented, SDI had a significant impact on arms control negotiations between the United States and the Soviet Union.
