#1 SM-3 missiles destroy incoming ballistic missile threats in space using nothing more than “sheer impact,” like hitting a 10-ton truck traveling at 600 mph, according to Raytheon Co., who makes the missile.
The system currently is deployed in Romania, and is “on track” to be deployed on U.S. warships and at military bases this year, according to the company’s website.

They don't work, but will be deployed, and Raytheon gets paid.

#3 ...A wise and dear friend who works as a military analyst said this today about this story:

"If you don't know what the test was supposed to prove, it's very hard for you to call it a failure."
