Sunday’s Mainichi claimed in its lead story that the Abe administration plans to approve the deployment of Aegis Ashore platforms in Japan, noting that a field survey for the installation will begin this month at two SDF camps in Yamaguchi and Akita. American experts will take part in the survey, which is aimed at checking whether the missile defense batteries will cause any disturbance to radio waves in the neighborhood in order to finalize the installation sites. The GOJ is hoping to deploy the platforms in FY2023.
