Vandenberg Air Force Base is planning a test of its missile defense system on Friday.
Crews there will launch a Ground-based Interceptor missile sometime between 11:30 am and 3:37 pm.
The goal is for the missile to intercept a ballistic missile target launched from Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.
The nation's Ballistic Missile Defense System is intended to protect the country from the threat of long-range ballistic missile attacks.
