Tomahawk Cruise Missile
     The picture shown was of one of the first series of Navy Tomahawk Cruise Missiles flown at WSMR between June 1976 and January 1977. The missiles followed a series of map locations between Pt. Mugu, CA and WSMR in captive carry mode on the wing of a Navy A-6 aircraft. Upon reaching White Sands the cruise missile was released and flew to the desired target location. Prior to these actual flight tests, guidance feasibility and cruise missile guidance set source selection competitive tests were performed at WSMR.
