All national papers except Sankei reported that the Defense Ministry convened a meeting on Wednesday of academics and other private-sector exports on civil engineering and electromagnetic waves tasked with offering technical advice on the ministry’s plan to conduct a second survey to identify the optimum locations for hosting Aegis Ashore batteries. The taskforce was created in the wake of strong criticism that the initial survey, which identified two communities in Akita and Yamaguchi Prefectures, contained erroneous data due in part to the use of Google Earth and other mapping software.
