Project ALARR Air-Launched Air-Recoverable Rocket is a program to develop a system for air sampling at altitudes above the capability of aircraft. It is intended to have a low-cost, quick-reacting, global capability as independent of ground facilities as possible. Air launches from a B-57 interim launch aircraft designed to test the recovery unit are described. The recovery unit, developed to provide air recovery, was unsuitable because it proved unreliable. The air-launch air-recovery technique could not be tested. This report describes Project ALARR flight tests from January 1964 to May 1965. Author
