AIR DEFENSE COMMAND - PAMPHLET
June - October 1962
Outstanding cooperation between the American military, scientific and industrial communities has characterized the development of equipment and weapon systems for the Air Defense Command
SAGE was devised and built within ten years; joint effort built the DEW Line and Arctic communications networks in spite of incredible logistic and construction problems; and BMEWS was operational in record time - with over 2900 American industries and businesses involved in its development.
The latest advances in technology are continuously applied to the problems of aerospace defense, with the result that ADC's inventory includes missiles, rockets and interceptor aircraft which can seek out, find and destroy any aircraft presently possessed by a potential aggressor - at any time and in any weather.
The current challenge - to develop and produce an effective weapon system to oppose enemy ballistic missiles and space vehicles - is now the subject of intensive concern to Air Defense Command planners, American scientists and representatives of the nation's industries.
