United States Missile Defense Test Fails

The Pentagon says the military conducted an unsuccessful missile defense test over Hawaii on Wednesday.

Pentagon chief spokeswoman Dana White confirmed the test on Thursday.

"It did not meet our objectives, but we learn something all the time from these tests, and we learned something from this one," White said.

The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) said a Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) Block IIA that was launched from a facility in Hawaii attempted to intercept an intermediate-range ballistic missile target during the test.

This was the first test where an SM-3 Block IIA missile was launched from land using the Aegis Ashore testing complex, according to the MDA. The agency is investigating what caused the test to be unsuccessful.

Japan is planning to buy the Aegis Ashore land-based system to boost its own defenses against North Korea, and the missile used in the test is still in development.

The missile defense system tested on Wednesday could be used in the Western Pacific region. However, it would not be the weapon used to protect the continental United States against potential intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that North Korea is working to develop.
