Sandhawk


Sandhawk

The Sandhawk was a sounding rocket developed by Sandia National Laboratories in 1966. This single-stage, sub-orbital rocket had a mass of 700 kg, a takeoff thrust of 80 kN, and could reach heights around 200 km or so. Sandia launched eight of these rockets between 1966 and 1974 as part of experiments conducted for the Atomic Energy Agency. About 25% of the launches failed.
