Squirt Missile Ready to Fire

     The Squirt was a test vehicle used during development phase of the Sprint anti-ballistic missile. The first stage was made up of an array of solid-fueled rockets, while the upper stage had a shape and materials similar to the Sprint.  The Squirt was fired from a launcher located on the eastern edge of Launch Complex 37 at what was "A" section of the Nike Ajax/Hercules test area originally known as Army Launch Area 3.  The launcher has been used by various other projects over the years and still remains there.
