C-17 assists in Missile Defense Agency Test

An Air Force Test Center C-17 manned by an Edwards crew, launches a second target, an extended Medium Range Ballistic Missile (eMRBM) into a debris field created by the THAAD weapon system, which intercepted and destroyed a Short Range Air Launch Target. One important aspect of the test event was to demonstrate that Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense was able to detect a target inside of a debris field. (Missile Defense Agency image)
