Abstract:

Design of supersonic guided missile with range up to 100 miles is discussed. Studies are continued on effect of ogival nose angles on missile range and curve of range versus angle indicated optimum range for 35 degrees. Concerning suitable nose configurations, new design based on structural, aerodynamic, and production considerations are outlined for Rascal missile grossing 11500 pounds. ANAPG-7 radar will include triple-tone circuit deemed essential for attacks on land targets. Flight test reports are appended.
