A Raytheon Standard Missile-3 Block 1B interceptor passes test

The Missile Defense Agency says a Raytheon Standard Missile-3 Block 1B interceptor successfully shot down a ballistic missile target during a flight test in Kauai, Hawaii. It was the missile system's 20th successful intercept, but the first for its newest, evolved variant, which will enable the defeat of sophisticated threats around the world. Essential to the Obama administration's phase two of the Phased Adaptive Approach to long-term missile defense in Europe, the SM-3 Block 1B will be deployed ashore and at sea on Navy cruisers and destroyers.
