Location: Forum Stage 3

Presenter: John Bronson

During the Cold War, the US defended against air, submarine, and missile attacks by the Soviet Union. These defenses detected and tracked manned bomber aircraft, hostile submarines and missiles launched from the other side of the world. The US created deterrence to Soviet attack by means of long-range attacks in response. This session shows how these defenses grew from fledgling stop-gap steps into a complex fabric of interconnected combinations of high-tech equipment over 40 years.
