    ColdWar-SouthFlorida 3 mByte .pdf
    Comments by Tom Page

    Charles: Carter

    Thank you for the document -- much appreciated!

    Sadly, it completely omits the U.S. Air Force's all-important air-defense radar surveillance role in South Florida. Even before the Cuban Missile Crisis (1962), and thus before the U.S. Army established Nike Missile sites and HAWK missile sites in southern Florida, the U.S. Air Force (in 1959) opened Richmond AFS (at the former Naval Air Station), re-establishing the 644th radar Squadron there, and using the FAA's ARSR-1 search radar and adding two USAF AN/FPS-6 height-finder radars. (The Air Force already had a vast radar network all across the country, but the southern-most radar units in Florida up until 1959 were at MacDill AFB and at Patrick AFB, as there was no perceived threat in the early days.) When the Cuban Missile Crisis did erupt, the Air Force quickly set up shop at NAS Key West, activating the then-new 671st Radar Squadron, and utilizing the Navy's existing AN/FPS-37 search radar and adding two USAF AN/FPS-6 height-finder radars. The Air Force also built and activated three short-range Gap-Filler Radar sites (as annexes of Richmond AFS) in 1962, at Naples, Long Key, and Jupiter, FL. The Army's Nike Missile sites and HAWK missile sites were dependent upon the long-range radar and gap-filler coverage that these USAF radar sites provided; that's why the AADCP's were set up at Richmond AFS and at NAS Key West (the original AADCP for KW was on the island of Key West, by the airport). The last of the USAF gap-filler sites closed down by July 1970, but the Radar Squadrons continued on well after the Nike and HAWK missile batteries ceased operations in 1979.

    The document is well-written, but it is incomplete. The Cold War was not "fought" by the Army alone -- the Air Force (as well as the Navy and the Marines, and also the FAA to some extent) was instrumental in the defense of southern Florida. And elsewhere throughout the country. I recommend these facts be brought to the attention of the author(s), and we can work with him (them) to update the document to fill in these important missing pieces. Thank you once again.

    Regards,

    -- Tom

Ed,

The long list below represents a bibliography of Nike materials that are part of the OCLC world-wide library system. Since these materials are listed on that system, most should be available for interlibrary loan purposes. I think I've rummaged through the list and screened out all the duplicate entries and unrelated items. I thought the list might be helpful for you or anyone else doing Nike research...
