The location of the second U.S X-band missile defense radar to be deployed to Japan has been announced. The TPY-2 radar will be deployed in central Japan at the Kyogamisaki military base near the small city of Kyotango. The location was described as being selected because it was near the trajectories North Korean missiles fired towards Guam or Hawaii would take. (This appears to be true for Guam, but not particularly for Hawaii.) The first TPY-2 to Japan was deployed at the Shariki base in Northern Japan in September 2006, and was the first TPY-2 to be deployed to a foreign country.
