Pentagon: ICBM missile intercept test a success
By Ellen Mitchell - 05/30/17 04:59 PM EDT
The Pentagon on Tuesday successfully shot down an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in a first-time test that cost nearly $250 million and helps prepare the Department of Defense (DOD) for a growing threat from North Korea.
The DOD’s Missile Defense Agency (MDA) shot an interceptor from the ground-based midcourse defense system (GMD) — a network meant to protect the country against a limited nuclear attack — at a target missile with a mock warhead meant to simulate an ICBM.
The target missile launched from Reagan Test Site Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific — nearly 5,000 miles from Los Angeles — and the interceptor was fired from an underground silo at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The intercept took place over the Pacific Ocean, according to a Pentagon statement.
