In the development of the F-102A as a target drone, its flight termination system was tested. The test proved conclusively that the MK-48 warhead used in the system would sever the aircraft, causing subsequent termination of flight. Significant debris from the explosion was found at a distance of 235 feet from the aircraft itself. High-speed motion picture coverage documented the explosion to aid in obtaining footprint data.
