Jim Syring, director of the Missile Defense Agency, said in a statement. The Defense Department said it will continue to evaluate other data to determine how the system performed. The ground-based mid-course defense system used a five-foot "kill vehicle" released from a larger ground-based interceptor missile to obliterate the mock ICBM, defense officials said.
The missile defense system will comprise 44 interceptors by the end of the year, so it could thwart an attack from a rogue state or a volley of rockets. The target was a custom-made missile meant to simulate an ICBM, which flew faster than the missiles used in previous intercept tests, according to the MDA's spokesperson Christopher Johnson.
But the interceptors, based in California and Alaska, would be overwhelmed by a full-scale attack from countries like Russian Federation or China , which could fire dozens of missiles at a time. The Ground-based Midcourse Defense(GMD) is created to intercept and destroy missiles during the midcourse of their trajectory through space. Though it succeeded in the last test in 2014, it failed during the three prior attempts against slower-moving, non-ICBM missiles.
