From what I can find, the only product of the Air Force Sandpiper program to fly was the AQM-81A Firebolt. It was a high altitude, high speed target drone that used the hybrid motor. It was a development of the HAST ( High Altitude Supersonic Target) program which followed on the promising results of the Sandpiper program. But it never went into production. Picture attached from Wikipedia.
