MKV Multiple Kill Vehicle
« on: December 11, 2008, 06:23:35 AM »
A video of an anti-ballistic missile defense system hovering test. It says 'multiple' because missiles today release decoys to defend against missile destroyers . . . the logic is that the multiple MKVs can take out not just the decoys but the main missile as well.

You'll see the same video at three different angles.

Also found this video from 2006, so I assume its an earlier prototype. Apparently it was a joint US-Japanese venture.
