The U.S Navy is planning to use the ship as an BMD/Aegis ship

I think you're confusing it with the DDG-51 Flt III design, which will be a BMD-focused Burke Destroyer.

Currently neither LCS has a VLS, and cannot carry Standard Missiles at all, and it's physically impossible, even if you wanted to, to put a VLS on either ship than can carry SM-3 BMD missiles, or a radar that is BMD-capable.
