Would you have any information on the guidance system? Sounds interesting.

When I saw the word "SNARK" in the subject field I thought, great!
someone is going to talk about the Snark--the 1950s-era, proto-
cruise missile that was to go from bases in CONUS all the way to the
USSR at subsonic speeds, carrying a nuclear warhead. The guidance
system they developed for it was very advanced, and was later used
for the SR-71 Blackbird. The Snark had a difficult testing period,
leading people to talk about "Snark-infested waters" off Cape
