The test comes amid North Korea's ballistic missile tests and rising tensions between the U.S and the North.

The SM-6 missile can perform anti-air warfare, anti-surface warfare and now even more advanced ballistic missile defense at sea. The test was considered a direct challenge to President Trump, who has threatened the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, that America would respond with "fire and fury" to provocations.

The principal objective of the launch was test to a new targeting software created to enable the SM-6 to intercept a ballistic missile warhead descending from the upper atmosphere at extreme speed.
