Pearl Harbor, Hawaii (March 31, 2006) – The Sea Based X-Band Radar (SBX 1) departs Pearl Harbor, en route to its homeport in Adak, Alaska in the Aleutian Islands. SBX arrived in Hawaii in January to undergo minor modifications, post-transit maintenance and routine inspections. SBX will provide the nation with ballistic missile tracking and detection and the ability to distinguish a hostile warhead from decoys and countermeasures.
