Significance: The SRMSC was the only operational Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) facility ever completed in the United States. The SRMSC was the culmination of 15 years of research and development in anti-ballistic missile efforts. The components utilized the achievements of the earlier developmental NIKE-ZEUS and NIKE-X ABM systems. It is generally recognized by Cold War historians that its construction and activation were instrumental in successfully negotiating the ABM and Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) Treaties with the Soviet Union.
