USA 193 Shoot Down Video

| May 22, 2008

The US Navy and the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization have compiled a nice collection of video from this past winter’s shoot down of a broken NRO satellite known as USA 193. It includes footage aboard USS Lake Erie (the cruiser who took the shot) as well as cameras that show the moment of impact with simulation footage of the SM-3 missile in flight. Quite a nice summary.
