In 1959, the U.S. Army's Ballistic Research Laboratories developed the Strongarm sounding rocket together with the University of Michigan. The Strongarm was a five-stage solid-fueled rocket, using Honest John, Nike (2x), Yardbird and scaled Sergeant stages. The Strongarm was used by the Army with a payload to measure the electron density in the upper atmosphere at altitudes of more than 1600 km (1000 miles). The highest apogee reached was 2027 km (1260 miles). The USAF also launched a single Strongarm on 27 July 1961. This rocket (the one pictured here) was of modified configuration, using a more powerful Thiokol Recruit fourth stage and no fifth stage.

The RM-10 missle was a single stage, 55 inch long launch vehicle used at Wallops Island to conduct drag and heat transfer tests in the supersonic speed range. Flight testing began in 1947. Between 1948 and 1955, twenty four full size missles, such as this one, were flown. The full size RM-10 had four fins and was 12 inches in diameter and 146.5 inches long.
