Bomarc Mach 3 ramjet surface to air missile; the only surface-to-air missile ever deployed by the US Air Force. Its development in the 1950's played an important role in technological base for later missiles and launch vehicles. Later converted to target missiles and launched from Vandenberg AFB.

AKA: CIM-10;CIM-10A/B;F-99;IM-69;IM-99. Status: Retired 1982. First Launch: 1952-09-10. Last Launch: 1982-07-14. Number: 157 . Gross mass: 6,800 kg (14,900 lb). Height: 14.20 m (46.50 ft). Diameter: 0.89 m (2.91 ft). Apogee: 20 km (12 mi).

Boeing began development of surface-to-air missiles under USAAF project MX-606 in 1946. By 1950 over 100 test rockets had been launched as GAPAs (Ground-to-Air Pilotless Aircraft). Promising results led to Boeing receiving a USAF contract in 1949 to develop the exotic MX-1599 ramjet-powered, nuclear-armed long-range surface-to-air missile for defense of the continental United States from high-altitude bombers. The primary research contractors (Boeing and the Michigan Aerospace Research Center) merged their names to produce the BOMARC moniker.

Test flights began in September 1952 of vehicles equipped with only the liquid-fueled booster engines. In February 1955 tests began of vehicles with live ramjets, but still without production guidance systems. In October 1957 a production-representative prototype flew with full guidance, and passed within kill range of the target. Production contracts were issued for the Bomarc A in late 1957. The first squadron became operational in September 1959.

Bomarcs were based horizontally in semi-hardened coffins shelters. After the launch order, the shelter's roof would slide open, and the missile raised to the vertical. It took two minutes to load the rocket propellant. After launch, the booster would accelerate the vehicle to supersonic speed, at which point the ramjet would ignite and take the missile to a Mach 2.8 cruise speed at 20,000 m (65,000 ft). The Bomarc was guided to the target by ground commands from the immense and costly SAGE (Semi-Automatic Ground Environment) system, which fused long-range radars and digital computers to track incoming enemy aircraft and prioritize and guide Bomarc missiles. Bomarc began guiding itself toward its target using active radar at a point 16 km (10 miles) away. Bomarc As were equipped with either a conventional high-explosive or a 10 kT W-40 nuclear fission warhead.

Even before Bomarc A was deployed, the USAF had begun development of the Bomarc B, which would use new solid-propellant Thiokol XM51 boosters and improved ramjets. This would allow instant launch and nearly double the range. Test launches began in May 1959, with the first fully successful flight in July 1960, when a supersonic Regulus II drone was intercepted. The terminal homing system used the world's first pulse Doppler search radar. All Bomarc Bs were equipped with the W-40 nuclear warhead.

In June 1961, the first Bomarc B squadron became operational. Bomarc B was also purchased by Canada, as an unmanned replacement for their cancelled CF-105 Arrow interceptor. However Bomarc, in common with other large cruise missiles, had become irrelevant after the advent of the ICBM. The last Bomarc A was phased out in December 1964. In April 1972 the last Bomarc B was retired. Surplus Bomarc missiles were used by all armed services as high-speed target drones for tests of other air-defense missiles.

Development Cost $: 834.900 million. Recurring Price $: 1.398 million in 1961 dollars. Flyaway Unit Cost 1985$: 1.194 million in 1959 dollars. Initial Operational Capability: 1959. Total Number Built: 700. Total Development Built: 130. Total Production Built: 570.
