The Missile Defense Agency expects to install two additional interceptors at Ft. Greely by the end of the year. The facility currently houses 20 missiles. Fort Greely is the primary interceptor base for the system which also has components in California and Europe. Missile Defense Agency spokesman Rick Lehner says the long term plan calls for a total of 54 interceptors for the defense system.
