Aerobee



Aerobee rocket launch. NRL partipated in the development of several rockets, the earliest of which was the Aerobee. These relatively inexpensive rockets were used for 31 upper atmosphere experiments specially suited to their capability. Later redesigned into the Aerobee-Hi with an enlarged fuel tank, it was used for three flights in 1957 in conjunction with the International Geophysical Year.
