The Sea-Based X-Band Radar sails out for a series of sea trials
over the upcoming months before cruising to its home port of Adak,
Alaska. A Boeing-led industry team integrated and delivered SBX
to the U.S. Missile Defense Agency earlier this year. With a height
of more than 250 feet (76 meters), the SBX radar is the world's
largest, most sophisticated X-band radar and can provide early warning
of incoming ballistic missile threats.
