Australian test vehicle. The HAD vehicle was, like HAT, a two stage rocket, based on British Gosling and LAPStar motors. First launched in 1961, it had two test flights before becoming operational.

Status: Retired 1969. First Launch: 1961-04-24. Last Launch: 1969-12-09. Number: 68 . Thrust: 130.00 kN (29,220 lbf). Gross mass: 300 kg (660 lb). Height: 6.10 m (20.00 ft). Diameter: 0.26 m (0.85 ft). Apogee: 130 km (80 mi).

Four Gosling motors with canted nozzles were used as boosters for the British Thunderbird ramjet surface-to-air missile. 664 Gosling IV motors were supplied for the Thunderbird, Bloodhound, and Seaslug Mark II missiles.

For sounding rocket applications, motors were supplied with in-line nozzles. The Gosling IV had an a all up mass of 256 kg, was 3.00 m long, and 0.254 m in diameter. It produced an average thrust of 124 kN over its 3.15 second burn time.
