My United States Air Force


What I did


The command control system I worked on from July 1977 - October 1980 provided information to the Strategic Air Command underground command post. An unclassified picture of the command post is attached. Note that colored data on the wall screens. That data came from the WWMCCS standard system I worked on. (This picture was posted somewhere on the web where the SAC command post was being described.)  Click here for a detailed analysis document that describes three WWMCCS failures.

The Command Control System I Supported Kept Track of SAC Bombers, Missiles, Tankers, and Other Stuff Dedicated to the Single Integrated Operational Plan (SIOP).
