Evaluating and managing Cold War era historic properties : the cultural significance of U.S. Air Force defensive radar systems.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Aircraft and later missile radar early warning stations played an important role in the Cold War. They are associated with important technological, social, political, and military themes of the Cold War and are worthy of preservation. The scope and scale of these systems make physical preservation impractical, but the U.S. Air Force program of historical evaluation and documentation of these systems will provide valuable information to future generations studying this historic period.
