The Squirt was a test vehicle used during development phase of
the Sprint anti-ballistic missile. The first stage was made up of an array of
solid-fueled rockets, while the upper stage had a shape and materials similar to the Sprint.
The Squirt was fired from a launcher located on the eastern edge of Launch
Complex 37 at what was "A" section of the Nike Ajax/Hercules test area
originally known as Army Launch Area 3. The launcher has been used by
various other projects over the years and still remains there.
