The U.S. military successfully conducted a test Tuesday of a new ballistic-missile interceptor system, which is being developed jointly with Japan.

The launch marks the second successful test in under two months for the SM-3 Block IIA missile and its associated technologies, which had previously experienced failures.

According to the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (MDA), sailors at the Aegis Ashore Missile Defense Test Complex at the Pacific Missile Range Facility in Kauai, Hawaii, tracked and intercepted an intermediate-range missile with an SM-3.
