Developed by Northrop Grumman, KEI is basically a “mobile, land-based missile-defense system that, when deployed, will be able to destroy a hostile threat during its boost, ascent or midcourse phase of flight.” Video after the jump.

The burnout velocity, acceleration and high-performance thrust vector control provided by these rocket motors give KEI the unique capability to intercept long-range ballistic missiles in multiple phases of flight
