US missile intercept test fails
VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE -- The U.S. Missile Defense Agency says a missile intercept test has failed.
The test involved the launch of a ground-based interceptor rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California shortly after noon today and the launch of a target missile from the Kwajalein Atoll in the Pacific Ocean.
The Missile Defense Agency says the interceptor launched successfully and deployed its Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicle but the planned intercept was not achieved even though the system's Sea Based X-Band radar and all sensors performed as planned.
The agency says there will be an extensive investigation to determine the cause of the failure.
