U.S. fails SM-6 missile defense tests for Aegis missile defense system




Tests of the SM-6 anti-missile system of the US Aegis anti-missile defense system (ABM) for intercepting ballistic missiles at the final stage of the flight ended in failure, they could not hit the target. This was reported by the US Department of Defense Missile Defense Agency.





It is specified that the purpose of the test was to demonstrate the capabilities of the ship with the Aegis missile defense system to detect, track, intercept and destroy a medium-range ballistic missile using two Standard Missile 6 [SM-6] Dual II anti-missiles. “However, the interception was not carried out,” the statement said.

Authorities have launched a review that will thoroughly analyze the test results to determine the cause of “problems that may have prevented a successful interception.”
