Missile Interceptor Test in Pacific Simulating Iran Strike Fails

A malfunction in a radar built by Raytheon caused the test of a simulated missile attack to fail over the Pacific Ocean. The target missile, which was fired from Kwajalein in the Marsha Islands, functioned normally. The interceptor fired from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California also functioned normally. The Sea-Based X-band radar did not perform as designed.
