Summary/Abstract: he approach of the problematic also known under the metaphoric name of anti-missile shield was made on the basis of two principles: of causality and temporality. The analyzed phenomena and principles were followed on their pursuit cause – effect trail, respectively, were studied from space and time perspective. Starting from the quantitative and qualitative evolution of nuclear weapons, of means used for their transport to the target and the anti-missile defence means, our aim was to find responses to a series of questions as follows: against which missiles, who owns them and what means of defence can be used; what resources suppose the accomplishment and maintenance in function of anti-missile shields; how efficient is the anti-missile shield implementation in the balance of powers and in regional and global security assessment?
