Janus Luanch
A Janus target sits poised for launch from Wake Island in support of a PATRIOT fire unit test. Janus provides a realistic threat target for the PATRIOT. Utilizing a refurbished SR-19 “Flexseal” motor for its first and second stage, the rocket lifted from its launch pad with the assistance of two U.S. Army M26 Multiple Launch Rocket System strap-on boosters. Both stages completed their nominal burn patterns placing the Re-entry Vehicle into the defended footprint of a PATRIOT fire unit. (Photo courtesy of the U.S. Army)
