Subject: Japan Fires SM-3 - Successful Intercept for JMSDF
Softwar    12/21/2007 2:45:57 PM Japan successfully intercepted a ballistic missile in its first test launch of the US-developed SM-3 missile interceptor system from a warship in waters off Hawaii. The Japanese destroyer Kongou launched a missile -- from waters off Kauai Island -- and successfully intercepted the mock target, another missile. No immediate confirmation was available from Japan's defence ministry, which only confirmed the interceptor missile was launched. It was the first test of the Standard Missile 3 (SM-3) by a country other than the United States, according to the ministry.
