Reference News Network reported on December 13 The US Defense News Weekly website published a report on December 11th entitled "The US Navy and Missile Defense Agency Shooting Space Medium-Range Ballistic Missiles".
The US Navy and Missile Defense Agency reaffirmed on the 11th and successfully shot down a medium-range ballistic missile target in space through the land-based Aegis anti-missile system based in Hawaii.
The report said that the test was the second consecutive successful completion of the "standard"-3IIA interceptor missile. Before this interception test, there was a success in October this year, which freed the shadow of two consecutive failures - one caused by the crew's operational mistakes and the other because of the failure of the third-stage rocket engine. According to some officials, the two failed tests were all going well before the accident, and it is hopeful that the target will be successfully intercepted.

The Missile Defense Agency spokesperson Mark Wright said that the missile launched from Hawaii is far from the test site of the Kosovo Aegis anti-missile system from Kauai. One of the sensors sets the tracking trajectory.
The report said that Wright confirmed that the land-based Aegis anti-missile system did not track the target missiles from start to finish, which means that the missiles that were shot down were completely forwarded by non-self-contained sensors. In order to achieve the goal of successfully intercepting the target, this is the key capability of the Missile Defense Agency currently focused on research and development.

The "Standard"-3IIA interceptor missile was jointly developed by the United States and Japan and is expected to be deployed to the US-based land-based "Aegis" sites in Romania and Poland, as well as the future. Such a site will be established in Japan - this makes it the cornerstone of the US short-range and medium-range missile defense strategy. Europe's land-based "Aegis" site has been a cause of tension between Russia and the United States. Russian President Vladimir Putin often criticized the system and accused the United States of attempting to use the system to subvert European strategic balance.
The report stated that this was the third success in the five interception tests conducted by the "Standard"-3IIA missile.
