The US Missile Defense Agency (MDA) tested an SM-3 Block IIA interceptor against an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM)-class target for the first time on 17 November, potentially adding a significant new layer to US strategic defences.
美国导弹防御局(MDA)于11月17日首次对洲际弹道导弹(ICBM)级目标进行了SM-3 Block IIA拦截器的测试,这可能为美国的战略防御增加了一个重要的新层次。
 
For the test, designated FTM-44, “the ICBM-representative target was launched from the Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site, located on Kwajalein Atoll in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, toward the broad ocean area northeast of Hawaii”, MDA spokesman Mark Wright said.
导弹防御局发言人马克·赖特说,对于测试而言,指定为FTM-44,“洲际导弹替代目标是从位于马绍尔群岛共和国夸贾林环礁的罗纳德·里根弹道导弹防御试验场向夏威夷东北的广阔海洋区域发射的” 。

“In this developmental test, the [US Navy Aegis-equipped] destroyer used engage-on-remote capabilities through the Command and Control Battle Management Communications (C2BMC) network as part of a defense of Hawaii scenario. After receiving tracking data from the C2BMC system, the destroyer launched an SM-3 Block IIA guided missile, which destroyed the target,” Wright said. Janes understands that USS John Finn (DDG 113) launched the interceptor.
赖特说“在这项发展测试中,[配备美国海军宙斯盾]驱逐舰通过“指挥与控制战斗管理通信”(C2BMC)网络使用了远程交战能力,这是夏威夷防御方案的一部分。在从C2BMC系统接收跟踪数据后,驱逐舰发射了SM-3 Block IIA制导导弹,摧毁了目标”。 简氏了解到,美国海军“约翰·芬恩”号(DDG 113)“阿利伯克”级驱逐舰发射了拦截弹。
 
Wright said, “the test met its primary objective”, which was to demonstrate the SM-3 Block IIA’s ability to intercept a target at ICBM speeds and ranges.
赖特说,“这次试验达到了它的主要目标”,即证明SM-3 Block IIA能够拦截洲际弹道导弹速度和射程的目标。
 
SM-3 Block IIA interceptors were designed for intermediate-range missile intercepts (3,000–5,500 km) but the US Congress mandated it be tested against an ICBM-class target (greater than 5,500 km) before the end of 2020.
SM-3 Block IIA拦截器专为中程导弹拦截(3,000-5,500公里)而设计,但美国国会授权在2020年底之前针对ICBM级目标(大于5500公里)进行测试。
 
This event was the sixth flight test of an Aegis ballistic missile defence (BMD)-equipped vessel launching an SM-3 Block IIA. It was scheduled for May but delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
这次活动是装备宙斯盾弹道导弹防御(BMD)的舰艇发射SM-3 Block IIA的第六次飞行测试。 它原定于5月,但由于Covid-19疫情而推迟。
