US warship shoots down missile during test in the Pacific
A Standard Missile-6 (SM-6) guided missile is launched from the Navy destroyer USS John Paul Jones during a successful defense test on August 29, 2017, that intercepted a medium-range ballistic missile target.
One of Raytheon's most advanced missiles intercepted a medium-range ballistic missile during a test near Hawaii on Tuesday, Tucson-based Raytheon Missile Systems and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency said.
"We will continue developing ballistic missile defense technologies to stay ahead of the threat as it evolves, "Greaves added". Sailors aboard the destroyer USS John Paul Jones tracked it with radar and fired an interceptor missile to shoot it down. Monday's intercept test, like others the US has conducted, was long planned, the MDA said.
Due to the diplomatic efforts and sanctions failing to make headway in stopping the North Korea threat, Higbie is concerned the USA may be forced to consider the military options.
By firing a long-range missile over Japan that landed in the northern Pacific Ocean, North Korea is showing a total disregard for its global obligations, she said in a statement Tuesday.
The principal objective of the launch was test to a new targeting software created to enable the SM-6 to intercept a ballistic missile warhead descending from the upper atmosphere at extreme speed.
Instead, Trump's terse, written statement reiterating that all USA options are being considered pointed to an administration cautiously searching for an effective policy, even as the North's test risked endangering Japanese civilians.
The "complex" test flight of the the Standard Missile-6 Block IA marked the third successful intercept for the latest variant, and it was the second involving a medium-range ballistic missile target. That was the 15th intercept in 15 tests for the THAAD system, according to the MDA.
