U.S. to Attempt First Missile Intercept Test Since 2008

The Pentagon plans on July 5 to attempt the first successful interception in more than four years of a surrogate missile incoming toward the U.S.

The test is scheduled to use interceptors tipped with Raytheon Co.“hit-to-kill” warheads that last successfully hit their target during a December 2008 exercise, according to the Missile Defense Agency.
