I have never seen a reference to such a prototype.

The Hi (High) is in comparison to the original "Standard" Aerobee, which was shorter, had smaller fins and a boattail. The length difference was due to propellant tanks, that were responsible for the potential altitude (or payload weight) difference. If anything could have been called the "Aerobee Lo" it would have been the Standard Aerobee, but nobody ever called it that.

Guys, I was being a wise-acre and it was meant as a joke.
Good information anyway.
If Peter says it doesn't exist, I believe it.

I have suggested coal-powered LO-Brid powertrain vehicles at work, but nobody seems on-board with that STELLAR idea.
To say I have ZERO interest in non-fuel-burning vehicles would be an UNDERSTATEMENT.
Piston, Turbine, or Rocket ENGINES, thank you. Unlimited range electric motors powered by miniature nuclear-reactors, YES PLEASE !
Batteries ? NAH !

His response was that there was no-one left at the company from that time frame and the best information he could find was that the logo was a creation of Aerojet's marketing/art department.

Fortunately, Gordy/Sandman was able to take the Aerobee-Hi logo and work with it to make the Arreauxbee-Hi wording (Thanks again, Gord! ).


I just checked and I still have the file…I think. I have probably 5 or six different scales available. I can’t do the white part but I can do the black ok with my last printer if you need the decals.

Oh, and you’re welcome.

There was a rocket called the Pogo-Hi. There actually was a Pogo-Lo. The project was for launching missile targets that fell under a parachute. The Hi version was rocket-boosted, the Lo version was dropped from an aircraft, no rocket involved.

So your question wasn't as silly as you meant it to be ;-)
