The Missile Defense Agency’s Sea-Based X-band Radar (SBX) will be visible on the horizon from Oahu tomorrow, Thursday, Oct. 20, and will arrive at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam shortly thereafter. While in port, the vessel will undergo scheduled maintenance and crew members will conduct training operations.

 

The SBX is one of the sensors for our nation’s Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS). It is a semi-submersible, self-propelled, mobile radar platform designed to provide the Missile Defense Agency with support for ballistic missile defense. Its mission is to identify ballistic missile threats to our nation and relay that information to the command and control center for missile defense.
