Bomarc Demonstrates Effectiveness in Area Defence
Kingston, N. Y.—How effective the Boeing Bomarc surface-to-air missile is as an area defense weapon against manned aircraft and air-breathing missiles was demonstrated here in the weapon system’s first public showing. Under the direction and control of signals generated by a large SAGE-type digital computer located in Kingston, N. Y., a Bomarc IM-99A missile was automatically readied and launched from the Air Force Missile Test Center at Cape Canaveral, Fla., about 1,500 mi. away.
