Juno Target Launch

A Juno PTV, provided by the Space and Missile Systems Center at Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo, California, successfully launched from the U.S. Army's Fort Wingate near Gallup, New Mexico Dec. 10. The target missile soared high into the atmosphere on its way to the White Sands Missile Range to be intercepted by a Patriot Advanced Capability Three (PAC-3). SMC's Rocket Systems Launch Program and its mission partners re-utilizes excess motors from Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles for U.S. government research, development, test and evaluation efforts. The Patriot Target Vehicle, also known as Juno, incorporates two solid rocket motors from the LGM-30F Minuteman II weapon system which was retired in 1994.
