The description of the video says that the tests were carried out at the Pacific missile test site, on the island of Kauai, at about 22.30 local time.

The rocket with hypersonic speed reached the target and hit it.

The department called the tests “a key step on the way to the Pentagon’s goal – the deployment of hypersonic combat potential in the early to mid-2020s.”

“These trials are based on the success we achieved during our first flight experiment in October 2017, when the C-HGB achieved robust hypersonic planning at a selected distance,” US Admiral John Wolfe, Strategic Navy Strategic Systems Development Program, quotes TASS.
