The exact date of the planned test is not being disclosed until it has taken place.

The United States of America (USA) is set to test its THAAD missile defence system against an intermediate-range ballistic missile as President Donald Trump vowed to confront North Korea's "very, very bad behaviour", "very strongly".

The Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system to be tested is created to intercept and destroy short-, medium- and intermediate-range ballistic missiles during their final phase of flight.

Beazer Homes USA Inc (NYSE:BZH): Institutional Investor Sentiment Up to 1.42
Teza Capital Management LLC purchased a new stake in shares of Beazer Homes USA during the first quarter valued at about $167,000. It has outperformed by 95.32% the S&P500.The move comes after 9 months positive chart setup for the $447.43 million company.

The defense system isn't created to take on the kind of intercontinental missile North Korea launched, though.

Each Thaad system has five major components: interceptors, launchers, a radar, a fire control unit and support equipment, according to Lockheed Martin, the security and aerospace company that serves as the prime contractor for the equipment. After previous tests, the USA military has publicly disclosed the results. Officials from the Department of Defense said the THAAD system will go up against an intermediate-range ballistic missile. The US Missile Defense Agency confirmed that the test would be conducted in "early July" considering the July 4 IRBM launch from North Korea.

MDA told Congress in June that it plans to deliver 52 more THAAD interceptors to the U.S. Army between October 2017 and September 2018, for a total of 210 since May 2011.
