The US Navy (USN) and Missile Defense Agency (MDA) intercepted an advanced medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM) test target using the Standard Missile-6 (SM-6) Dual II with Software Upgrade (SWUP), the MDA confirmed on 28 March.

Guided-missile destroyer USS Jack H Lucas (DDG 125), the first Flight III Aegis destroyer equipped with the new SPY-6 radar, participated in the test as part of its Initial Operational Test and Evaluation, the MDA said.

Australia's participation included “a demonstration of radar capabilities of the ANZAC-class frigate HMAS Stuart , with an Australian E-7 Wedgetail aircraft assisting in data collection and communications,” the MDA said.

Australian sensors also provided target track data in support of a cued-organic simulated engagement, the MDA said, noting the “test also represented the most robust participation in an Aegis test to date” by Australia.
