The two stage Jupiter IRBM was originally a Army program that ran in conjunction with the US Air Force's Thor Missile Program, and was eventually taken over by the Air Force. Development of the missile was to include a sea-based variant, but the Navy wasn't keen on storing a liquid propellant missile on it's ships, thus developing the Jupiter-S solid propellant missile which in turn became the Polaris missile.

The PGM-19 Jupiter was the United States Air Force’s (USAF) first nuclear-tipped, intermediate-range ballistic missile (MRBM). It was a liquid-propelling rocket using RP-1 fuel and LOX oxidizer, with a single Rocketdyne LR79-NA rocket engine (model S-3D) producing 667 kN thrust.
American ballistic missile with an intermediate-range. The US Army developed the Jupiter IRBM. The project and the missile were transferred to the US Air Force which had its own nearly identical missile, the Thor, by the time production was complete. In the early 1960s Jupiters were deployed in Turkey and Italy but withdrawn from Cuba in secret exchange for the withdrawal of SovietR-5 missiles.
The Jupiter was used as the first stage of the comparatively unsuccessful launch vehicle Juno II and proposed for the Juno III and Juno IV. Jupiter tools and engines were used to create the much larger launch vehicle Juno V / Saturn.
The Jupiter, which Chrysler Corporation developed for the Army, was a single-stage, liquid-fueled, rocket-powered ballistic missile fitted with all-inertial guidance. The Jupiter was mounted vertically on tactical launchers which were deployed in the field. The missile could be fuelled and launched at approximately 15 to 20 minutes’ notice to an effective range of 1,500 nautical miles.
