    The Japan Maritime Self Defense Force destroyer JDS Chokai launches a Standard Missile 3 during a Missile Defense Agency joint missile defense intercept test. The SM-3 was launched to intercept a medium-range separating target that was launched from the Pacific Missile Range Facility at Barking Sands, Kauai, Hawaii. The system, ship's crew and missile performed as expected, but the SM-3 failed to intercept the target. The failure is under investigation.
