Public meetings to be held on missile defense radarJune 11, 2018
Honolulu Star Advertiser:
The U.S. Missile Defense Agency will hold public meetings starting June 19 for the placement on Oahu of a powerful radar facility to better defend against North Korean missile threats.
The agency, in cooperation with the Air Force and Army, wants to hear from residents about the plan as it conducts an environmental impact statement review.
The military is proposing to build the more than $750 million Homeland Defense Radar-Hawaii at Kuaokala Ridge adjacent to Air Force Kaena Point Satellite Tracking Station or at one of two sites at the Army’s Kahuku Training Area.
