Japanese Radars Failed to Track North Korean Missiles September 25, 2019

 

Japan has failed to track the trajectory of some of North Korea’s new types of short-range missiles according to the Japan Times.

The missiles, including some capable of reaching Japan, apparently escaped detection due to their low altitudes and irregular trajectories. Tokyo is said to believe that North Korea is attempting to break through Japan’s existing missile defence network.

Japan is considering operating two or more Aegis-equipped destroyers to cover low altitudes as well as strengthening its radar functions, the sources said Sunday.
