While my Mom was in Collage, she worked on a governemnt project to help pay for her Collage Bill. This was done at place that she said was called Northrup. She and her friends mostly swore at the Officers in Russian, but that is beyond the point. It was a project in which they were attempting*** to make a Smart-Missile that would drop out of an aircraft, and destroy a Radar Tower, unfortunetly, the project never worked out. I did a seard on this, and couldn't find anything. So, I don't think it's been De-Classified. My Mom had a Top-Secret Clearance at the time.
One, night she heard the CO's talking about a Super-Anthrax of sorts. It was a new geneticaly engineered type of Anthrax that would adapt to anything you tried to kill it with. Interesting, no???

It's TACIT RAINBOW, not "Tasset Rainbow., which was why you didn't find anything.

But TACIT RAINBOW was a project to develop a jet-powered mini drone, not a missile. It was one of only two weapons systems to be cancelled after undergoing full-up RDT&E; the other was the Sergeant York air defense gun.

But the thing was exceeding its budget, and Northrop had a very bad reputation for performance screwups and budget overruns at the time. I think it went down around 1990.

Another of the planned uses for the tacit Rainbow project was the ability to "drop" the missile someplace away from it's target and leave it in a station keeping mode until the delivery aircraft could depart the area then the missile would begin processing it's targeting assignment and look like it popped up out of nowhere on the enemies detection systems.
