US Military to Deploy Eight Additional Interceptor Missiles In Alaska

The Pentagon plans to deploy eight additional ground-based interceptor missiles at Fort Greely, Alaska, according to the U.S. Missile Defense Agency.

Japanese television network NHK reported Tuesday the U.S. military is adding eight more missile defense systems and "updating" its sea-based X-band radar to deter against North Korean threats.

The SB-X is the world's largest and most powerful phased array X-band radar in the world, and is housed inside a dome that resembles a giant golf ball.
