 Yorkshire CND - Fear and loathing in orbit - 29/4/05
The DART spacecraft was supposed to approach and delicately circle a target satellite on April 15, but it apparently became lost and began blundering around blindly, quickly exhausting its rocket fuel.
Designed to collect close-up readings of missile exhaust plumes from an orbiting observation point, it was to carry a satellite that dove in closer to the climbing rocket - arguably an "attack vehicle" against enemy satellites.
According to the April 13 issue of Defense Daily, Obering's reference to space-based missile interceptors was made in the context of the changing nature of the missile threat to the United States.

This energy is expressed in terms of the weight (mass) of the missile falling from a specified height which would result in 50 % failure of specimens tested.
By this technique, a uniform missile weight increment is employed during test and the missile weight is decreased or increased by the uniform increment after test of each specimen, depending upon the result (fail or not fail) observed for the specimen.
One missile weight is employed for each group and missile weight is varied in uniform increments from group to group.

 OTO Melara Announces 100th Successful Test Firing Of 'DART' Missile System
DART is launched from the 76 Compact and 76 Super Rapid gun systems developed by OTO Melara and now used by 54 navies, including the US Navy and US Coast Guard.
"We are developing DART, which is guided by a radio frequency beam, and the unguided variant, ART, to provide cost effective tools for naval planners concerned about the threats posed by cruise and sea skimmer missiles now available to rogue forces and the 'small swarm boats' used by terrorists," said Howard Goldberg, CEO of OTO.
Goldberg said the unguided variant, ART, is an ultra high speed missile, which, when combined with the 76 SR system's high rate of fire, will provide the best possible protection against a multitude of explosive-laden terrorist swarm boats attacking naval vessels.

After launch, the Dart's bright tail-mounted sodium flare was optically tracked by the operator, who would send corrective commands via a spooled-out wire to keep the missile on the line of sight to the target.
The Dart had comparatively large cruciform wings and fins for stabilization and control, and used wingtip spoilers for steering.
The development of the Dart turned out to be much more difficult and expensive than originally expected, and in late 1956 the system was still far from ready for deployment.
