Ballistic Missile Defense Center (BMDC)

The BMDC was located at the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) headquarters within the Cheyenne Mountain complex in Colorado. Its purpose was to integrate the Safeguard system into NORAD by providing a command interface with other military systems and a means of disseminating command directives and controls to Safeguard sites.

Had Safeguard been deployed at the twelve sites originally planned in 1969 (map), the BMDC would have been the superior command authority co-ordinating the defensive actions of all twelve sites.
