Joint missile defense intercept test

A Standard Missile - 3 is launched from the Japanese Ship Myoko in a joint missile defense intercept test, with the Missile Defense Agency, in the mid-Pacific. The SM-3 successfully intercepted a medium range target that had been launched minutes earlier from the Pacific Missile Range Facility, Barking Sands, Kauai, Hawaii. The Myoko's crew had detected and tracked the target and its weapons system developed a fire control solution, then launched the SM-3. The Myoko will return to Japanese waters after it has loaded some SM-3 interceptors in Pearl Harbor.
