The U.S. Navy is calling a $40 million missile defense test a success.It used two interceptor missiles to destroy a target fired from a ship off the coast of Hawaii Thursday.

The target, a scud-like missile, was shot down 100 miles northwest of Kauai about five minutes after it was launched.

In February, the Navy used the same technology to shoot down a U.S. spy satellite that was drifting in space.
