Aegis Ashore Refrain from requesting budget for site development expenses Ministry of Defense, August 22, 4:19
Regarding the deployment plan for the new interceptor missile system `` Aegis Ashore '', the Ministry of Defense is spreading back in the local area of the candidate site due to mistakes in survey data, etc. In the rough demand, we decided to forego the cost related to the construction of the site.
Regarding the deployment plan of the new interceptor missile system `` Aegis Ashore '', there has been a rebound in the locality of the candidate site due to mistakes in survey data related to the candidate site Akita city and the fact that the staff fell asleep at the briefing session, etc. The Ministry of Defense plans to outsource the survey to the candidate sites Akita City and Sakai City, Yamaguchi Prefecture.
Under these circumstances, the Ministry of Defense does not calculate the budget on the assumption of deployment without obtaining local understanding, and it is necessary to proceed with the procedure carefully. We decided to forego the cost related to the maintenance of the service.
On the other hand, as North Korea repeatedly launches short-range ballistic missiles, etc., it is necessary to steadily improve the missile defense system. In addition to designing the radar and launcher for Aegis Ashore, costs for training, etc. Is a policy to be included in the approximate request.
