Micro West Ford SIAM (Self Initiated Anti-Aircraft Missile) or SUBADS (Submarine Air-Defense System) Factory Model, 1/10

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$475   

Very rare factory display model of the 1970s DARPA SIAM project, which was short for Self-Initiated Anti-Aircraft Missile. The idea was to develop a completely autonomous air-defense missile. One of the most obvious purposes was for use onboard submarines. The submarine can hear the aircraft or helicopter as it approached since the sound propagates through the water. The submarine could then launch a SIAM buoy to the surface, where the missile would automatically detect and attack any incoming aircraft. It was also theorized that SIAM could be launched vertically from the submarine itself. SIAM was tested in the early 1980s and was generally successful. DARPA handed SIAM over to the Navy, where it was deactivated due to funding. This factory model is complete with the original stand. The wooden base has a metal disk showing a submarine launching a SIAM, which is shown executing the 'dual homing' functions. The missile is just over 7 inches long. The base and metal badge are 'near mint' condition. The missile is excellent, with all original paint and decals. There is some minor wear on some of the port-side gold decals.

Titan was larger than Atlas and was also seen as an early space launch vehicle. Titan was stored in hardened underground silos. The arrival of solid fuel Titan II and Minuteman I missiles in 1963 made Titan I obsolete. The follow-on, Titan II became a major workhorse in the space program and served well as a heavy lift ICBM.
