It depends on a lot of variables. Where was the missile shot from? Where is it headed? Where does it actually end up? What phase is it in? Did we detect it before launch? What type of missile is it? What assets do we have the AOR? Have local commanders been given the authority to shoot things down? If not how long is does the CoC take in giving permission? Etc.

Would be poetic justice if they shot off an EMP 'bomb' (whatever it is) and it failed in their space.

peace through strength

If they did that, depending on the height, it would still blackout parts of SK, Japan and China. Of course NK being less electronically advanced than neighboring nations wouldn't be as affected. Not much poetic justice in that scenario.

Some of the links on the MDA site get pretty informative. It goes into the radars and other sensors involved.

That's exactly what I was looking for, thank you. I'll have to try to give it a read sometime this week. I'm a slow reader haha, so I need to have a fair amount of time available to dive into it.

North Korea marked its government’s 69th anniversary not with another missile test, as many had feared, but with a gala party for the scientists involved in carrying out the country’s most powerful nuclear test yet last week, the state-run news media reported on Sunday.

The country’s leader, Kim Jong-un, celebrated the national holiday on Saturday by bringing his nuclear scientists and engineers to Pyongyang, the capital, and holding a banquet.

On their way from the country’s underground nuclear test site in northeast North Korea to Pyongyang, the technicians had been cheered by people who poured out to see them passing by, the country’s official Korean Central News Agency reported. And upon their arrival in the city, on Wednesday, they were met with a hero’s welcome, including a huge outdoor rally and firecrackers.
