Astrobee F
Part of Astrobee Family
American sounding rocket. Single stage solid-fueled dual-thrust rocket replacement for the Aerobee 150.

Status: Retired 1983. First Launch: 1972-09-26. Last Launch: 1983-03-02. Number: 49 . Thrust: 178.00 kN (40,015 lbf). Gross mass: 1,500 kg (3,300 lb). Height: 11.50 m (37.70 ft). Diameter: 0.38 m (1.24 ft). Apogee: 375 km (233 mi).

It had the same diameter and payload interfaces, allowing proven Aerobee payloads to be used without significant changes.
