AIM-26 Falcon
The AIM-26 Falcon

began the development of an enlarged version of the GAR-1D Falcon that would carry a nuclear warhead. It was intended to provide a sure kill in attacks on Soviet heavy bomber aircraft. The original development was for semi-active radar homing and heat-seeking versions based on the conventional GAR-1/GAR-2 weapons, under the designations GAR-5 and GAR-6, respectively. The original program was cancelled. The program was revived in 1959, now under the name GAR-11

National Museum Of Naval Aviation
The National Naval Aviation Museum, formerly known as the National Museum of Naval Aviation and the Naval Aviation Museum, is a military and aerospace museum located at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida. The museum was established 14 December 1962 with the initial facility located in a cramped 8,500 square foot building aboard the air station that had been erected during World War II and which was dedicated in June 1963. The Phase I portion of the current facility was dedicated Sunday 13 April 1975, although it had been informally open since November 1974. Construction of the new location began in November 1972.[1]Contents1 Overview 2 Collection 3 See also3.1 Naval aviation museums 3.2 United States museums 3.3 Other4 References 5 External linksOverview[edit] The museum is devoted to the history of naval aviation, including that of the United States Navy, the United States Marine Corps, and the United States Coast Guard

Proximity Fuze
A proximity fuze is a fuze that detonates an explosive device automatically when the distance to the target becomes smaller than a predetermined value. Proximity fuzes are designed for targets such as planes, missiles, ships at sea and ground forces. They provide a more sophisticated trigger mechanism than the common contact fuze or timed fuze. It is estimated that it increases the lethality by 5 to 10 times, compared to these other fuzes.[1] British military researchers Sir Samuel Curran
Samuel Curran
and W. A. S. Butement invented a proximity fuze in the early stages of World War II
World War II
under the name VT, an acronym of "Variable Time fuze".[2] The system was a small, short range, Doppler radar. However, Britain lacked the capacity to develop the fuze, so the design was shown to the United States during the Tizard Mission in late 1940

Dassault Mirage III
The Dassault Mirage III
Dassault Mirage III
(French pronunciation: ​[miʁaʒ]) is a family of single-seat, single-engine, fighter aircraft developed and manufactured by French aircraft company Dassault Aviation. It was the first Western European combat aircraft to exceed Mach 2 in horizontal flight.[3] During 1952, the French government issued its specification, calling for a lightweight, all-weather interceptor. Amongst the respondents were Dassault with their design, initially known as the MD.550 Mystère-Delta and later renamed as the Mirage I. Following favourable flight testing held during 1955, in which speeds of up to Mach 1.6 were attained, it was decided that a larger follow-on aircraft would be required to bear the necessary equipment and payloads

Aviation Museum Of Central Finland
The Finnish Airforce Museum (Finnish: Suomen Ilmavoimamuseo), formerly the Aviation Museum of Central Finland (Finnish: Keski-Suomen ilmailumuseo), is an aviation museum located near Jyväskylä Airport in Tikkakoski, Jyväskylä, Finland. The museum exhibits the aviation history of Finland, from the early 1900s until today. The museum is owned by the Foundation of Aviation Museum of Central Finland (Finnish: Keski-Suomen Ilmailumuseosäätiö). The exhibition consists of aircraft, engines and aircrew equipment which has been used by the Finnish Air Force. The equipment of the Air Force Signals Museum has its own section. A large collection of scale models gives a wider perspective to the whole field of aviation. The museum is visited annually by some 25,000 persons.Contents1 Aircraft 2 See also 3 Sources 4 External linksAircraft[edit] The following aircraft are a selection of the collection

Infrared Homing
Infrared
Infrared
homing is a passive weapon guidance system which uses the infrared (IR) light emission from a target to track and follow it. Missiles which use infrared seeking are often referred to as "heat-seekers", since infrared is radiated strongly by hot bodies. Many objects such as people, vehicle engines and aircraft generate and emit heat, and as such, are especially visible in the infrared wavelengths of light compared to objects in the background. Infrared

seekers are passive devices, which, unlike radar, provide no indication that they are tracking a target

Semi-active Radar Homing
Semi-active radar homing
Semi-active radar homing
(SARH) is a common type of missile guidance system, perhaps the most common type for longer-range air-to-air and surface-to-air missile systems. The name refers to the fact that the missile itself is only a passive detector of a radar signal – provided by an external (“offboard”) source — as it reflects off the target[1][2](in contrast to active radar homing, which uses an active radar: transceiver). Semi-active missile systems use bistatic continuous-wave radar. The NATO brevity code for a semi-active radar homing missile launch is Fox One.Contents1 Concept 2 Continuous-wave radar 3 Electronic counter-countermeasure (ECCM) 4 Combat record 5 References 6 External linksConcept[edit] Main article: Track algorithmFigure 1
