A Self-Defense Force team tests mobile communications equipment in Shinjuku Gyoen park in Tokyo's Shinjuku Ward on Monday to see if the site would allow deployment of the Patriot Advanced Capability (PAC3) interceptor missile defense system there in an emergency.

About 50 SDF members brought vehicles laden with antennas and a radio relay system to check communications with Air SDF facilities. The PAC3 system is designed to protect central Tokyo, including the Prime Minister's Official Residence, the Diet building, government agencies and other important facilities, from possible missile attacks.
It has a maximum radius of about 20 kilometers.
The Defense Ministry is looking for sites with space to deploy the SDF units that have few tall buildings nearby which would block any interceptors.
The ministry also plans to test other spots, including Yoyogi park.(IHT/Asahi: January 16,2008)
