NHK reported online on Wednesday evening that Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga stated during a news conference earlier in the day that the government is considering using actual radar beams in tests to determine the effect of Aegis Ashore systems on human health in the proposed installation sites in Akita City and Hagi, Yamaguchi Prefecture, to address local residents’ concerns. Computer simulation tests are already being conducted in Akita and Hagi, but the new tests are reportedly being considered as part of the government’s efforts to win local consent for the Aegis Ashore deployment.
