    Exercising the SLBM ejection system in 1964.

    "its basically a sidewinder missile engine that instantly vaporizes 50 gallons of water, creates a ball of steam and ejects the missile from 250 feet to the surface (with out getting wet). Once it clears the surface the thrust nozzle and aero spike deploy(on trident missiles) makes the missile about 5 or 6 feet longer than in the tube. The instant the missile detects negative forward velocity it fires the engine. All of that takes place in under 2 seconds from broaching the surface."
