The SM-64 Navaho was the last-built in a line of intermediate-range ballistic missiles designed by North American Aviation in the late 1950s for the U.S. Air Force. Intended to have greater range than other IRBMs, it was ultimately cancelled after four failed launches caused its sponsors to shift funding to the more promising SM-62 Snark and the intercontinental ballistic missiles Atlas and Titan.
The missile is named after the Navajo Nation.
