    NAVAL SUPPORT FACILITY REDZIKOWO, Poland – The new Naval Support Facility in Redzikowo, Poland, will be home to the Aegis Ashore Ballistic Missile Defense System(AABMDS) mission in the coming years and is expected to be completed sometime in late 2020. Located in the northwestern part of Poland, the base is a result of the 2009 initiative called the European Phased Adaptive Approach(EPAA). The EPAA calls for using Ballistic Missile Defense capabilities to defend Europe against threats originating from outside the Euro-Atlantic area. The new base will expand a defensive capability that protects NATO European territories, populations and forces.
