时间是2017财年第一季度/2016年末，这将是GMD系统部署13年来第一次实际拦截洲际导弹目标，而且还将是一次使用CE-II Block 1型EKV拦截有对抗措施的靶弹
FTG-15 (1Q FY 2017). This is scheduled to be
the first intercept test since FTG-06b in July 2014. It will be the
first GMD intercept test against an ICBM-range target (range greater
than 5,500 km). The target will include countermeasures. FTG-15 will
also will be the first flight and intercept test of the new production
CE-II Block-I version of the Exo-Atmospheric Kill Vehicle (EKV) and the
first flight test of the upgraded C2 booster. According to Admiral
Syring, in this test “…we’re getting now out to the long-range and
closing velocities that certainly would be applicable from a North
Korean or Iran type of scenario.”
The next intercept flight test of the GMD system will take place later this calendar year.
FTG-15 will be the first intercept flight test for the CE-II Block 1 EKV and the C2/CBAU IBV.
It also will be the first intercept of an ICBM range target by the GMD system or any other BMDS
