In the document below, at page 23 there is the following sentence:

"During the early 1960s, the U.S. Navy was also researching possible ASAT capabilities. Early efforts focused on matching a Navy Sparrow anti-aircraft missile with a Polaris Submarine-Launched Ballistic Missile (SLBM) but these efforts did not proceed beyond ground experiments."

Any other info/drawing/picture will be very appreciated.

PS: Another version of the same document is available online at The Space Review website, in a three-part paper starting here.
