Summary

The topside facility of the Oscar-1 Minuteman Missile Alert Facility on Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, as viewed from the South, June 18, 2020. The Oscar-01 Missile Alert Facility (MAF) was constructed in 1963 and determined to be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) by Missouri SHPO in 1998. The facility consists of a one-story surface structure, assembled as a Launch Control Support Building (LCSB), and two sub-surface, re-enforced concrete encapsulated steel pods- a Launch Control Center (LCC) and Launch Control Equipment Building (LCEB). These two sub-surface wings are connected by a Tunnel Junction and accessed by an elevator. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Alexander W. Riedel)
