SUMMARY: The United States military is proposing to build a missile defense radar system called, the Homeland Defense Radar - Hawaii (HDR-H), on Kuaokala ridge in Kaʻena or in Kahuku. Community members and activists oppose this project for multiple reasons including cultural and archeological importance of the site, the further desecration of ʻāina, and questions about if the missile defense system would be successful. The project had been tabled in February 2020, however; as of September 2021, the new defense spending bill includes money for the HDRH.
