U.S. to place Tippy-Two in Japan

Hoping to fill gaps in defenses against a possible North Korean missile attack, the United States has revealed plans to field a second missile-defense radar in Japan. The Raytheon-built radar AN-TPY-2, also known as “Tippy-Two,” will search for and track incoming missiles and can be integrated with land- and sea-based interceptor missile systems. "What we found after introduction of the first radar in Shariki is that coverage was extensive but imperfect," a U.S. official told reporters. The second radar “will provide additional coverage for the U.S. homeland as well as additional coverage against North Korean ballistic missile threats for the Japanese."
