USAF Mach 3 ramjet surface-to-air missile; later converted to target missiles and launched from Vandenberg AFB.

Boeing began development of surface-to-air missiles under USAAF project MX-606 in 1946. By 1950 over 100 test rockets had been launched as GAPAs (Ground-to-Air Pilotless Aircraft). Promising results led to Boeing receiving a USAF contract in 1949 to develop the exotic MX-1599 ramjet-powered, nuclear-armed long-range surface-to-air missile for defense of the continental United States from high-altitude bombers. The primary research contractors (Boeing and the Michigan Aerospace Research Center) merged their names to produce the BOMARC moniker.

Test flights began in September 1952 of vehicles equipped with only the liquid-fueled booster engines. In February 1955 tests began of vehicles with live ramjets, but still without production guidance systems. In October 1957 a production-representative prototype flew with full guidance, and passed within kill range of the target. Production contracts were issued for the Bomarc A in late 1957. The first squadron became operational in September 1959.

Bomarcs were based horizontally in semi-hardened coffins shelters. After the launch order, the shelter's roof would slide open, and the missile raised to the vertical. It took two minutes to load the rocket propellant. After launch, the booster would accelerate the vehicle to supersonic speed, at which point the ramjet would ignite and take the missile to a Mach 2.8 cruise speed at 20,000 m (65,000 ft). The Bomarc was guided to the target by ground commands from the immense and costly SAGE (Semi-Automatic Ground Environment) system, which fused long-range radars and digital computers to track incoming enemy aircraft and prioritize and guide Bomarc missiles. Bomarc began guiding itself toward its target using active radar at a point 16 km (10 miles) away. Bomarc As were equipped with either a conventional high-explosive or a 10 kT W-40 nuclear fission warhead.

Even before Bomarc A was deployed, the USAF had begun development of the Bomarc B, which would use new solid-propellant Thiokol XM51 boosters and improved ramjets. This would allow instant launch and nearly double the range. Test launches began in May 1959, with the first fully successful flight in July 1960, when a supersonic Regulus II drone was intercepted. The terminal homing system used the world's first pulse doppler search radar. All Bomarc Bs were equipped with the W-40 nuclear warhead.

In June 1961, the first Bomarc B squadron became operational. Bomarc B was also purchased by Canada, as an unmanned replacement for their cancelled CF-105 Arrow interceptor. However Bomarc, in common with other large cruise missiles, had become irrelevant after the advent of the ICBM. The last Bomarc A was phased out in December 1964. In April 1972 the last Bomarc B was retired. Surplus Bomarc missiles were used by all armed services as high-speed target drones for tests of other air-defense missiles.

Boeing F-99-IM-69-IM-99-CIM-10 Bomarc

The Bomarc was the only surface-to-air missile ever deployed by the U.S. Air Force. All other U.S. land-based SAMs were and are under the control of the U.S. Army.

In 1946, Boeing started to study surface-to-air guided missiles under the USAAF project MX-606. By 1950, Boeing had launched more than 100 test rockets in various configurations, all under the designator XSAM-A-1 GAPA (Ground-to-Air Pilotless Aircraft). Because these tests were very promising, Boeing received a USAF contract in 1949 to develop a pilotless interceptor (a term then used by the USAF for air-defense guided missiles) under project MX-1599. The MX-1599 missile was to be a ramjet-powered, nuclear-armed long-range surface-to-air missile to defend the continental USA from high-flying bombers. The Michigan Aerospace Research Center (MARC) was added to the project soon afterwards, and this gave the new missile its name Bomarc (for Boeing and MARC). In 1951, the USAF decided to emphasize its point of view that missiles were nothing else than pilotless aircraft by assigning aircraft designators to its missile projects, and anti-aircraft missiles received F-for-Fighter designations. The Bomarc became the F-99.

Test flights of XF-99 test vehicles began in September 1952 and continued through early 1955. The XF-99 tested only the liquid-fueled booster rocket, which would accelerate the missile to ramjet ignition speed. In February 1955, tests of the XF-99A propulsion test vehicles began. These included live ramjets, but still had no guidance system or warhead. The designation YF-99A had been reserved for the operational test vehicles. In August 1955, the USAF discontinued the use of aircraft-like type designators for missiles, and the XF-99A and YF-99A became XIM-99A and YIM-99A, respectively. Originally the USAF had allocated the designation IM-69, but this was changed (possibly at Boeing's request to keep number 99) to IM-99 in October 1955. In October 1957, the first YIM-99A production-representative prototype flew with full guidance, and succeeded to pass the target within destructive range. In late 1957, Boeing received the production contract for the IM-99A Bomarc A interceptor missile, and in September 1959, the first IM-99A squadron became operational.

The operational IM-99A missiles were based horizontally in semi-hardened shelters ("coffins"). After the launch order, the shelter's roof would slide open, and the missile raised to the vertical. After the missile was supplied with fuel for the booster rocket, it would be launched by the Aerojet General LR59-AJ-13 booster. After supersonic speed was reached, the Marquardt RJ43-MA-3 ramjets would ignite and propel the missile to its cruise speed and altitude of Mach 2.8 at 20000 m (65000 ft). The Bomarc was guided to the target by ground commands from SAGE (Semi-Automatic Ground Environment), whose long-range radars tracked the enemy aircraft and the interceptor aircraft and missiles. When the Bomarc was within 16 km (10 miles) of the target, its own Westinghouse AN-DPN-34 radar guided the missile to the interception point. The maximum range of the IM-99A was 400 km (250 miles), and it was fitted with either a conventional high-explosive or a 10 kT W-40 nuclear fission warhead.

The liquid-fuel booster of the Bomarc A was no optimal solution. It took 2 minutes to fuel before launch, which can be long time in high-speed intercepts, and its hypergolic fuels were very dangerous to handle, leading to several severe accidents. As soon as high-thrust solid-fuel rockets became a reality in the mid-1950s, the USAF began to develop a new solid-fueled Bomarc variant, the IM-99B Bomarc B. It used a Thiokol XM51 booster, and also had improved Marquardt RJ43-MA-7 ramjets. The first IM-99B was launched in May 1959, but problems with the new propulsion system delayed the first fully successful flight until July 1960, when a supersonic KD2U-1-MQM-15A Regulus II drone was intercepted. Because the new booster took up less space in the missile, more ramjet fuel could be carried, increasing the range to 710 km (440 miles). The terminal homing system was also improved, using the world's first pulse doppler search radar, the Westinghouse AN-DPN-53. All Bomarc Bs were equipped with the W-40 nuclear warhead. In June 1961, the first IM-99B squadron became operational, and Bomarc B quickly replaced most Bomarc A missiles. The IM-99B was also used by Canada, after this country had cancelled its advanced CF-105 Arrow manned interceptor.

In June 1963, the IM-99A and IM-99B missiles were redesignated as CIM-10A and CIM-10B, respectively. The Bomarc A was retired soon afterwards, the last CIM-10A being phased out in December 1964. Withdrawal of the CIM-10B also began in the mid-1960s, and by 1969 most missile sites had been deactivated. Finally, in April 1972, the last Bomarc B in USAF service was retired. The Bomarc, designed to intercept relatively slow manned bombers, had become a useless asset in the era of the intercontinental ballistic missile.

The remaining Bomarc missiles were used by all armed services as high-speed target drones for tests of other air-defense missiles. The Bomarc A and Bomarc B targets were designated as CQM-10A and CQM-10B, respectively. When production had ceased in 1965, about 700 Bomarc missiles of all versions had been built by Boeing.
