VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (KTLA) — The 30th Space Wing and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency conducted a flight test of the Ground-Based Mid-course Defense system Saturday.

The missile test was designed to demonstrate the latest version of the advanced kill vehicle.

The launch was the cumulation of three years of study, development and modernization from the nation’s top engineers.

The test was also an opportunity to demonstrate the ability of the U.S. to nullify ballistic missile threats, particularly from North Korea, according to the military.
