Oct. 29, 2010 - A Standard Missile – 3 (SM-3) is launched from the Japanese Ship (JS) KIRISHIMA (DDG-174) in a joint missile defense intercept test with the Missile Defense Agency, in the mid-Pacific. The SM-3 successfully intercepted a separating 1,000 km class ballistic missile target that had been launched minutes earlier from the Pacific Missile Range Facility, Barking Sands, Kauai, Hawaii. The KIRISHIMA’s crew detected and tracked the target and its weapons system developed a fire control solution. The crew then launched the SM-3, with the intercept occurring three minutes later.

The CHOKAI's crew had detected and tracked the target and its weapons system developed a fire control solution, then launched the SM-3. The system, crew and missile performed as expected, but in the last few seconds of flight, the SM-3 failed to intercept the target. While the failure is under investigation, the CHOKAI will return to Japanese waters after it has loaded some SM-3 interceptors in Pearl Harbor. (Photo Courtesy MDA)
