Atlantic Research Corporation developed the ARCAS (All-Purpose Rocket for Collecting Atmospheric Soundings) for the Office of Naval Research (ONR). An ARCAS rocket was first launched in July of 1959. During the 1960s, the Air Force developed a variant of the sounding rocket known as the Frangible ARCAS Meteorological Rocket which was designed to be flown over residential areas. To avoid injury and damage to property on the ground, a sheet of explosive material wrapped around the airframe allowed the rocket to be destroyed in mid-air..

Rocketarium's scale Frangible ARCAS model separates at motor ejection and descends under a parachute. The kit doesn't get blown to pieces and, unlike the real rocket, can enjoy many flights.
