The United States has confirmed plans to deploy anti-missile system THAAD in South Korea, in the wake of a growing threat from the DPRK. Officials from the two countries said they will try to deploy the system as soon as possible, but an exact location and date have yet to be determined. THAAD stands for Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense, and is designed to shoot down ballistic missiles in their terminal phase. THAAD’s radar can locate missiles up to 2,000 kilometers away, far beyond the DPRK’s territory.
