‘Juniper Cobra’ helping US develop missile shield for Europe
Senior officials in the US and Israeli militaries have announced that the results of this week’s Juniper Cobra missile defense exercise will be instrumental in the Pentagon’s plans to develop a missile defense shield for Europe. The Israeli Arrow II, the ship-based Aegis, the high-altitude THAAD and Patriot (PAC) III missile defense systems tested in the last two weeks are all planned to be integrated into the Obama Administration’s new plans for defending European and East Asian allies against the threat of ballistic missiles from Iran and North Korea. Elsewhere, the Japanese Navy successfully tested its third Aegis-capable destroyer on Tuesday, shooting down a dummy ballistic missile fired from the US Navy’ s test range in Hawaii. Pentagon officials have expressed high confidence that the new Aegis BMD system will be able to defeat any missiles that potential enemies might launch at the US or its allies for decades to come.
