Data Processing System (DPS)

Data processing systems were integral components of the PAR and MSR. Both sites used computer controlled phased array radar systems. The DPS also handled target trajectory computations and inter-site communications. The MSR battle management applications were responsible for the interception and destruction of threatening ICBM warheads. The BMDC also had a DPS component, but its capabilities were limited to display and command / control functions.
