Notes
Survey number HAER CO-88-B
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N492).
Significance: It played a significant role in the development of the Titan II ICBM, which not only served as the largest and most destructive weapon in the U.S. nuclear arsenal during the Cold War, but also functioned as a launch vehicle for the Gemini space program in 1965. The laboratory served as the functional center of the complex for testing, handling, and storage of Titan II's propellants. Testing and evaluation of underground storage, temperature conditioning, and pressurized transfer of propellents, as well as rinse water collection and vapor disposal, in this building were critical to missile research and development and contributed to the success of the exceptionally significant Titan II progam.
