Product Description

In February 1945, the U.S. Navy had a very pressing requirement for a new air-defense weapon to counter the increasing Japanese Kamikaze threat more effectively than the existing anti-aircraft guns. Because the Lark missile project would need some time to develop a usable surface-to-air missile, the NAMU (Naval Air Material Unit) proposed the very simple Little Joe guided missile design as an interim weapon until Lark would become available. Little Joe was approved in May 1945, and the first test firing already occurred in July that year. In October 1945, the missile was designated as KAN-1.

The KAN-1 was basically an Aerojet 8AS1000 JATO (Jet-Assisted Take-Off) solid-fueled rocket fitted with cruciform wings and fins, and was boosted into the air by four auxiliary 76 mm (3 in) rockets. After launch, Little Joe was gyro-stabilized and could be radio-controlled by an operator who visually tracked the missile. Its 45 kg (100 lb) general-purpose warhead was triggered by a proximity (VT) fuze.

The KAN-2 model used a new propellant for the sustainer motor, which was presumably less smoking than the original one, because rocket smoke had significantly hampered tracking of the initial Little Joe missiles. The later models also had a flare in the tail to further facilitate optical tracking.
