Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Martin AN/FSG-1 Antiaircraft Defense System was an electronic fire distribution center to computerize Cold War air defense command posts from manual plotting board operations to automated command and control of remote surface-to-air missile launch batteries. The 10 United States Army C3 systems used radar netting to coordinate ground-controlled interception by Nike and MIM-23 Hawk missiles. The vacuum tube fire control logic reduced the time to designate the appropriate missile battery to launch if an enemy target had intruded into a defense area where an AN/FSG-1 system was deployed.show more
