The Pentagon is planning its first missile test since 2008 on July 5. If successful, the launch will be the first interception in more than four years of a surrogate missile incoming toward the U.S. The test will use interceptors tipped with Raytheon (RTN +0.1%) "hit-to-kill" warheads which last successfully hit their target during a December 2008 exercise, and be operated by Boeing (BA +0.8%).
