Significance: It is believed that the plans for deployment and initiation of construction of this facility were instrumental in obtaining Soviet agreement to the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty and a subsequent decline in Cold War hostilities between the Superpowers. One of four remote launch sites at the Missile Site Radar (MSR) site, the Remote Sprint Launch (RSL) Site #1 facility has 12 Sprint missile silos. These silos and the others at the SRCMS represent the total number of launch silos allowed under the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty and its 1974 protocol.
